All four candidates for the Superior School Board are good, sound, intelligent people who will serve the citizens of the district well.
The candidate for whom I would like to write a few words is James Farkas. I have known James for three years as a fellow Rotarian. During that time, I have been impressed by his knowledge of many things, his critical thinking skills, and his deep caring about all facets of education. He will truly have the best interest of the students, parents, teachers, administrators and other staff at heart.
James brings a vast array of experience to the school board. He is an engineer who also has an MBA and is the manager of Northern Engineering in Superior.
In Rotary, he is the vocational chairperson for the club. He is the liaison with the Interact Club at the high school and regularly attends their meetings. He helped at SHS for three days in the club’s fundraiser ‘Floats for Goats’ to buy a goat for families in third world countries. He is a Rolling Reader for two third grade classes at Great Lakes Elementary. He also started a program to teach chess and decision making to third graders. He also is a former Dragon Boat Festival co-chairman and yearly coordinates children’s activities for the event. Besides Rotary, he is a past president of Superior Kiwanis, a member of the Superior Salvation Army advisory board, and has been a Junior Achievement and English as a Second Language volunteer.
As a teacher, I am proud to say that James will do an excellent job as a school board member. He has the endorsement of the Superior Federation of Labor and he has my vote. Please join me in voting Farkas for Superior School Board. Thank you.
