Richard Rykhus rivals resourcefulness and readiness.

I have known Mr. Richard Rykhus for a few years now as a neighbor, board of education member, concerned citizen, and a person willing to listen as he analyzes a situation thoroughly to derive a solution or suggestion for that concern.  As an incumbent to the district #65 board of education, he has profiled courage and perspective on a variety of issues.  However, he is always willing to share his heartfelt thoughts regarding what he feels is the right thing to do.  I appreciate his candor and desire to work diligently in improving the education for all students, especially those who maybe experiencing some educational deficits.  From my perspective, he has been willing to listen and respond to many concerns shared.  I have found him willing to move positively towards improving the welfare of this district.  He has shared his desire to do even more in the future to help those who are experiencing academic deficits.  I would strongly applaud you providing your vote on his behalf in returning him as a district #65 board incumbent.
