Vote for Langworthy, Muckenhirn, Boyd, for DL school board

I would encourage all district voters to vote in Tuesday's election. Detroit Lakes School Board incumbents David Langworthy and Terrie Boyd have served our district with distinction and deserve re-election.

I would also endorse Brenda Muckenhirn for the third spot on the board. Brenda has been a member of our community for 28 years and has served the district as a member of the recently successful Referendum Committee and on the Fit Kids advisory group, promoting fitness and decreasing obesity in our district children. She has also recently been attending the monthly school board meetings.

She is the secretary for the Laker Booster Board and for the Detroit Lakes Dollars for Scholars Committee. She has also served on the Foundation Board of the First Lutheran Church.

All three of her children have attended DL public schools.

Brenda has extensive leadership experience as the former manager of the Physical Therapy Department at St. Mary's Regional Health Center and presently serves as the lead therapist at Sanford Health, in the department that she started and has developed over the last 14 years.

She has experience hiring and mentoring staff and planning and managing large budgets.

Brenda has participated in numerous remodeling projects at the hospital and Sanford Clinic in her roll as an administrator.

She has been an active community member and will be an excellent team member of our board if elected. -- Thomas M. Seaworth, Detroit Lakes
