Dear Neighbor,
I’m honored you placed your trust in me when you chose me to serve our schools. In my time on the board we have achieved, ongoing increases in our graduation rates and hired the first ever Latinx Superintendent. There is much work still to be done and I have the experience, drive, and commitment to help our school board make it happen.

I respectfully ask for your support and thank those of you who cast your vote for me in the past.

Ricki Ruiz, Reynolds School Board Member
