Dear Editor: Jacqueline Clark

March 18, 2017

Dear Editor:

It's been about 35 years ago, when I met Jacqueline (Jackie McEntire, then) Clark at a high school debate tournament. Her debate partner, Chris Adams, now a teacher/debate coach at Truman and William Chrisman high schools, and Jackie were very good debaters and they beat us, but a friendship was established.

I am writing to recommend to my fellow Lee's Summit R-7 School District voters, Jackie, as their number one choice for school board on Tuesday, April 4. This former debater will give you three logical reasons for supporting her:

1. Her private sector experience on a vast array of public policy issues makes her an ideal, even smart, candidate for school board. A school board deals with education policy, but it also deals with infrastructure, taxation and economics-related matters. She's handled all of those issues at the federal, state and local levels of government.

2. Jackie has served effectively and is widely respected throughout themetropolitan area for her work on behalf of the women and children who find safe shelter at Hope House, graduating seniors who need scholarship money to attend Mizzou and young professionals who need career mentoring. She has led the international Mizzou Alumni Association board and she can serve one-on-one a person who just needs a boost in confidence or some direction getting a career started.

3. Jackie works effectively with a diverse group of people. As a board member, you need broader experiences and skill sets to lead and achieve positive results for the Lee's Summit R-7 School District. She possesses them in greater measure than any other candidate in the field.
Please join me in supporting and voting for Jacqueline (Jackie McEntire) Clark on Tuesday, April 4. If you haven't heard that she spent the night in her Jeep waiting to be FIRST on the ballot, I know she did because we talked about it before she headed to the Stansberry Center to do it. She truly believed that she needed to be FIRST on the Ballot for Kids.
