At a time when there appears to be much turmoil in our democracy, with many voices raised in loud disagreement at the national, state and even our local level, we believe that there is a candidate for school board who brings years of contributions to our county and years of leadership to our nation. A person who is a trusted voice that will bring a calm and reasoned discourse to the important issues facing our schools. Clearly we are talking about John Bourgeois, a write-in candidate for the Hampton district seat on the school board.
Besides bringing marvelous music to the county, John Bourgeois has served on the boards of the Child Care and Learning Center, the Rappahannock Historical Society, RappCats and the Castleton Foundation. He knows the needs of our children and our county well. John Bourgeois believes that we are only as good as our schools are and he will work diligently (and cooperatively) to make them the best that they can be.
We join together in endorsing John Bourgeois for write-in candidate for the Hampton district seat on the school board.
