Letter: Re-elect Shelly Jarnot to Eagle County Schools Board of Education

Hi, my name is Tim Bettenhausen, and I support the re-election of Shelly Jarnot to the Eagle County school board. I teach at Battle Mountain High School, and I benefit from the support and high expectations of the school board.

Full disclosure: I have been friends with Shelly since the early ’90s. Our kids are friends, and our families go to the same church. Shelly is available and open to listening to both concerns of parents and teachers. I do have to be prepared, though, when I speak to Shelly. She asks probing questions and demands that I support my statements. I have always found her to be quick to listen and strong on her follow through. Most people don’t realize the wide breadth of issues facing our schools. Shelly is committed to both the big issues and less exciting details.

We are fortunate to have Shelly Jarnot on the Eagle County school board and should keep her involved in the education of our kids for as long as we can.
