Letter: Joel Peterson a school candidate of talent

We have a very important school board election coming up, one that will impact the future direction of our educational program and financial viability of our district.

Joel Peterson, who has served on the board with dedication and integrity for the past eight years, is a candidate for reelection. In addition to this experience, he has been a successful business executive. At the present time he is the chief executive of a mergers and acquisitions firm with global clients, where he provides guidance on complex financial transactions involving millions of dollars.

Joel has also held leadership positions in many community organizations, including the La Cañada Flintridge Chamber of Commerce and the La Cañada Flintridge Educational Foundation. He presently serves as president of the Community Scholarship Foundation. As a result of his extensive service to the community, Joel was recognized this year with the highly coveted Les Tupper Service Award.

I support Joel and thank him for continuing to be willing to offer his time and exceptional talents, as well as his indispensable experience, on the school board. Please join me in voting for Joel Peterson.
