Dear Sparta Residents,

It has been an honor to serve my first year on the Sparta Board of Education with fellow board member Kim Bragg. Kim is seeking re-election this year and is the only incumbent on the ballot.  Please join me in re-electing Kim Bragg to a second term!

For more than three years, Kim has been an essential member of the Sparta Board of Education. Kim exemplifies the positive qualities of an engaged board member:  well-informed, fair, and honest.  Kim gives a thorough evaluation of what she is being asked to vote on before putting her approval on it.  Kim has a high degree of integrity and looks at all sides of a particular issue.  She listens to her fellow board members, considers other perspectives, and treats everyone with respect.

In short, Kim Bragg is a model board member.  Sparta's residents can be assured that Kim Bragg’s decisions are always in the best interest of students, staff, and of course Sparta residents and taxpayers.

Kim Bragg is “bracketed” with Kurt Morris and Niamh Grano.  Bragg, Morris, and Grano have bracketed to let voters know they can be confident that the three candidates have similar views and that they support each other’s candidacy as much as their own.  All three have dedicated their lives here in Sparta to giving back to our community.  They also all share a deep involvement in the continued success of our school district.

Please come out to the polls this Tuesday, November 5th to elect #3,#4,#5, BRAGG MORRIS GRANO for Sparta BOE.

Your vote this year truly does count.
