To the editor:

An excellent leader of our city is once again running for office. Blake Roberson was term-limited two years ago from the Independence School Board, after serving 12 years on the board. He was a key leader in the transition of schools in western Independence. He served on the board at a time when the Independence School District was one of the most innovative in the state.

Mr. Roberson’s desire to continue to serve on the school board is a benefit to our city. I certainly welcome his desire to bring his leadership to bear in an important arena of our city.
