LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Re-elect Palacios to Center BOE

Dear Editor,
In my tenure on the Center Board of Education, one of the enjoyments was meeting and teaching new board members. When Misty Palacios attended her first meeting I knew she had the heart and drive to not just be an active member but a leader.
Misty understands the needs of Center students because she attended this district, has kids within the district and is a lifelong resident of Center. She not only believes in the students but has the ability to better their educational experience.
Misty has poured all of herself into our district and I am confidant she will continue on that path.
One of the things I learned while serving on the Colorado Association of School Boards was that a board member needs to be open to learning. Misty has shown from day one the she wants to learn all she can on how to be an effective board member. I have experienced her willingness to ask questions, get the answer and then put into action what she thinks is best for our students and staff. Misty Palacios has been a highly effective board member.
The voters within the Center Consolidated School District have an extremely easy choice this election as to who should serve on the Board of Education. Misty Palacios is not only the clear choice, she is the only choice. Our students and staff deserve a highly effective, well-educated board member whose desire is to make every day a better day within our schools.
In six years of speeches as past president of the Center BOE, I promised that we could make this district a better place for our children. I now ask you to help me keep that promise by re-electing Misty Palacios to the Center Board of Education.
 A highly effective board member whose sole interest is with the students and staff of the Center community is what is needed and Misty is that clear choice.
Michael Lobato,
