The Douglas County Professional Educators Association would like to offer our endorsements for candidates running for Douglas County School Board of Trustees. We are endorsing Larry Lippmann, John Louritt, and Karen Chessell.
We believe these candidates are highly committed to the young people of Douglas County and will work cooperatively with parents, teachers and community members to ensure our students receive the best education in Nevada.
Mr. Lippmann was a highly regarded math teacher at Douglas High until his recent retirement. Both Mr. Louritt and Mrs. Chessell have served on the Board of Trustees and understand the complexities of running a school district. All three of these candidates have expressed the intention of establishing a strong collegial relationship with classroom teachers and support staff.
We encourage voters to elect Larry Lippmann, John Louritt and Karen Chessell. We want all children in the Douglas County schools to receive a top notch education and we look forward to working with our new board members to make that happen.
