To the Editor:

I urge the election of Mark Bateman to the Satem-Keizer School Board. I have known Mark for several years. I have served with him and observed his performance on various committees and boards at the First United Methodist Church in Salem. Mark is a problem solver and is well prepared for this position. His previous experience with a variety of organizations and the financial challenges facing each have all contributed to his preparation to serve on the school board.
