To The Voters Of Algona Community School District: Before deciding to run for the Algona Community School Board, there were several questions I had to ask myself, and I am sure they are the same questions you would ask. I would like to discuss them here. 1.AM I QUALIFIED? I feel that I am, educationally, temperamentally, and because of my past community services and activities. A few of them are listed elsewhere in this paper. 2. WHY SHOULD A CATHOLIC RUN? Why not? The Constitution says there shall be no religious test for public office; and I believe the qualifications that make a good school board member are the same regardless of the person's race, religion, sex, or national origin. 3. WHY AM I INTERESTED IN THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS? First let's face one fact — the PUBLIC school is the school system of ALL the people, all races, all religious denominations — the school of the PUBLIC. In the past, in our area, Catholics have NOT SHOULDERED THEIR RESPONSIBILITY in this matter. True, they have paid their property taxes, but they have been hesitant to contribute of their individual talent and work. This situation NEEDS remedying. 4. WHY DON'T MY CHILDREN ATTEND THE PUBLIC SCHOOL? The Constitution has given me the right to send my children to any qualified school. The right to send my children to a parochial school, does not relieve me of my OBLIGATION to see that this community has the best possible school system. 5. HOW DO I STAND ON THE BOND ISSUE? I feel that this community needs a new public high school and I will do all that I can to see that this comes about as quickly as possible. Certainly, my presence on the school board would enhance the possibility of the bond issue being passed. In the past, Catholics have not shown proper interest in the public schools, But we must face squarely the fact that—also—in the past it appears an effort has been made to KEEP CATHOLICS out of our public school affairs, This situation has and is creating a detriment to the overall progress of our community, We must ALL —both Protestant and Catholic—take a look at ourselves in the mirror of our consci* ence on this matter, We must cooperate, J may very weJl lose this election — but if our community can gain a better understanding of one another and a deeper appreciation of each other's problems — then I will truly feel that WE — you and I — the PUBLIC — will be the winner, I would ask that you all vote Sept. 12. A victory for any of the candidates via the apathy of the public, will be a shallow one, If you feel tb*t"I couW ijo the most good tor public education in this area, I would appreciate your vote. Sincerely, K,C, NASH 7*mt»tmto*mttm*m*t*tt**t*t*t***«***t«**mt*t^
