Quick highlight: Mary Jane Evink contributed funds to all three of the incumbents. $0 to the Ottawa Impact trio. MJ is a highly respected member of our beloved district, with an extremely important position. She is fantastic beyond words and has never steered our kids’ education in a poor direction. Trust her before any Tom-Joe-or-Harry who just recently decided to jump into the politics of our education board because of a few books, a desire to argue, and a spotlight. She is highly educated, her experience is priceless, and she (and her husband) have devoted their lives to this district.

Vote for the incumbents. They are the best choices for the students, families, and staff in our district.


The Ottawa Impact is a group of right-wing zealots trying to instill fear over a couple of books. My neighbors have fallen for the baloney about race theory being taught in our schools, which by the way is NOT on any curriculum; check for yourself. Fear and lies is all these extremists know. Vote for the incumbents!
