To the editor:

It is an honor to voice my support for Blake Roberson, a candidate for election to the Independence School Board. I have known Blake for the past 13 years.

Blake should be elected to the Independence Board of Education because he places the needs of children first, his character is impeccable, his successful business experience compliments his ability to help successfully examine the business operations of the school district, and his compassion and concern for people is unparalleled.

Blake is a man of his word and understands the importance of the Independence School District in the community. Blake has committed his life to the people of Independence and receives my full support to be elected to the Independence Board of Education.
