    Let’s end the vitriol and respect all views on governing schools

    Editor:

    My husband and I volunteered in the Jeffco Public Schools for about 20 years in every grade level as we raised our children. We supported the teachers and principals and were there for students.

    Opposition to new superintendent has the wrong focus

    Editor:

    It’s typical. Some groups seem so fixated on their political agenda for education that they have lost all perspective. People certainly are entitled to their own opinions of the new Jeffco superintendent hire, Dan McMinimee. But they’re not entitled to their own facts.

    Board majority disregarding community

    Editor:

    Parents and citizens of Jefferson County ought to feel outraged at the recent actions of the new majority members of the school board. Let’s see. What’s happened so far this year?

    Editor:

    Liberal school board members are the ones who lack transparency
    Editor:
    In response to Ms. Trasky’s letter: The only bully here is you, Ms. Trasky. The best interests of the school board and the children would be better served if Lesley Dahlkemper and Jill Fellman stop whining to anyone and everyone who will listen. It seems they deliberately vote against ANY proposals by the new board president.

    Statistics on gun violence are appalling
    Editor:
    There are some striking numbers out there, and, no, I don’t mean Broncos stats.
    Six school shootings in 10 days; a mall shooting leaving 3 dead. Some 260 Americans shot and 86 killed every day, eight of those being children. But who’s counting, right?
    Well, I am.

    New school board: in the right
    Editor:
    Do you remember, not so long ago, when some folks, partial to brown-colored shirts and strange dance steps, said, “The bigger the lie the better, and the more that it is repeated, the better is the chance of it being believed”?
