As a grandparent and great grandparent, the race for superintendent of public instruction is very important to me. The education of our youth is something that should be on the forefront of everyone’s mind this election season. Melissa Romano has demonstrated her commitment to our public school system and our children time and time again. Her campaign has over a thousand different donors with her primary base of support being educators. As someone running for the top education job in the state of Montana this speaks volumes. Her opponent, Elsie Arntzen, is sorely lacking in support from the education community in Montana. She has less than one hundred donors and none of them are current educators. We need someone at the helm of education to lead the way and ensure all our children have access to a quality education. Romano’s goals of a public preschool option, mental health services in schools, and teacher retention and recruitment clearly resonate with educators across the state of Montana. This November vote for a champion of educators, Melissa Romano.
