Bavaro has shown his leadership skills

Nick Bavaro is running for the MID board of directors in District 1. That board can use his leadership and diplomacy.

As a former parent and PTA member of Sipherd School in the Empire School District, I got to know Nick Bavaro pretty well as our school board president. During the difficult years of budget cuts and salary negotiations, emotions and words ran very high. Parents were upset because their children's teachers were working without a contract and school programs were being cut to balance the budget. Those of us who attended board meetings during that period quickly learned that Nick Bavaro was the leader in bringing together those contentious elements. Ultimately, the winners were our children.

Nick Bavaro is a straight-up guy and I urge you to vote for him.
