As a West Ada School District Zone 3 resident, It’s been my honor and great privilege to serve as a Zone 3 Trustee. I wholeheartedly support Anita Beckman’s candidacy. Anita, a stay-at-home mom, holds values I hope to see continued in West Ada. She’s a U.S. Air Force veteran and understands what it means to be a community partner while engaging all stakeholders in the best interest of students.
Many members of our community (myself included) are concerned with Angie Redford’s campaign. Her contributions to date near $12,000, all but 1.5% coming from outside of Zone 3. Her signage states: “A CONSERVATIVE VOICE FOR SCHOOLS.” To my knowledge, Angie has refused to participate in nonpartisan channels to inform voters of who she is and why she’s running.
I fear she has no intention of representing the diverse needs of our families in Zone 3. It appears her strategy includes keeping her positions off record while attempting to make a nonpartisan race political.
Angie’s social media page states “Conservatives deserve a trusted, proven voice on the West Ada School Board.” When voting Nov. 2, I urge all Zone 3 residents to ask themselves, “What do students, families, teachers, and staff of Zone 3 deserve?”
