Reader backs Holtz's platform for state superintendent

To the editor: 

We have become so accustomed to partisan elections and being bombarded with nauseating TV ads. Well, we have another election on Tuesday, April 4. It is the "silent" Wisconsin Spring Election with non-partisan candidates on your ballot. In many ways, the spring election is the most important. We will be electing the government that is closest to the people, town supervisors, school boards, Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice and Wisconsin Superintendent of Public Instruction.

I am very concerned about the education of our children and grandchildren. I want school boards that exercise local control and are responsive to parents and their communities. We must change the culture of our educational system. A strong leader is needed for the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction. I will be voting on April 4. for Dr. Lowell Holtz as Superintendent of Public Instruction.

Dr. Holtz's platform for Wisconsin's kids to "learn, compete and win" is focused on three things:

• Improving performance, discipline and safety

• Honoring and empowering our teachers

• Advancing and embracing local control

Please join me in voting for Dr. Lowell Holtz on Tuesday, April 4. All polling places are open 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Make sure your friends and family vote!

Carol Cady,
