I am supporting Aaron Zander

By Mona Nelson, Decorah

I am supporting Aaron Zander, candidate for the Decorah Community School District Director.

Aaron has mentored and educated children through swim coaching and middle school teaching. In his five years as the Luther College men’s and women’s swimming and diving coach and Aquatic Center Director he has demonstrated his commitment to student athletes, and built a competitive program, recruited student athletes who respect him as a mentor.  He has positively collaborated with community programs and area school districts to schedule the Luther pool for all ages of swimmers and aquatic enthusiasts.  As the parents of two young children, Aaron and his wife, intentionally chose Decorah as the place to raise their family because of the vibrant community and the quality of the school district.

My husband, Cy, and I first met Aaron in 2006 when he was a Luther classmate and swim teammate of our son.

Decorah schools will benefit from Aaron’s commitment to serve all students, engage the community in moving forward with plans for a new elementary school, and support the teachers and staff sustain the quality of the school district.  As a former Decorah school board member, I am confident Aaron’s professional experience and ability to recognize the needs of all students will support him in board responsibilities and leadership.

Please join me in voting for Aaron Zander, candidate for Decorah Community School District Director. Election day is Tuesday, November 7.  Early in person voting is at the Winneshiek County Courthouse, Auditor’s office, on Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. through Monday, November 6.
