As a parent of children in Mattoon schools, it makes me proud to see how our students, staff, and administration build strong relationships and come together to support each other.
I have seen Ashli Overton do this as a parent, friend, and school board member. She felt so strongly about her kids attending Mattoon schools that she went through the legal process to annex her home into the Mattoon School District. Her opponent, however, choose to send her children to private school instead of Mattoon Public Schools.
Ashli takes great pride in her integrity and makes decisions based upon what is best for kids and our community. She has recently supported competency-based education, which means supporting kids that may need non traditional paths to graduation and ultimately into the workforce. I strongly support Ashli and her vision to help build skills for employment.
I appreciate your support by voting for Ashli Overton on April 2!
