This is written endorsing Richard “Rick” Osterwalder for a seat on the Hopewell-Loudon Board of Education in this upcoming election. Rick was the H-L board president when I was hired as superintendent of the district in 1996. I found Rick to possess excellent leadership skills. He capably led a strong conscientious board. His focus was that of making sure the board’s policy decisions were in the best interest of the student enrollment of our district. I also observed Rick to possess a tireless work ethic when it came to responsibilities pertaining to school board business. His leadership led to successful achievement of those responsibilities.
It is my opinion that Rick has the experience and qualities necessary to, again, successfully serve the Hopewell-Loudon constituency on their school board.
