I am writing to express my support for Chris Liebig, who is running for Iowa City School Board this year in the election to fill the two-year seat. I have known Chris for ten years now, as a colleague, a neighbor and a friend. In addition to being an excellent team player at work and a stalwart friend, Chris has many other qualities that will serve him well in this position.
First, he is whip-smart. He is one of the clearest thinkers I know — he has an uncanny ability to analyze an issue thoroughly, while being fair to all involved. Related to that, he is also a man of great integrity. I have never known him to be swayed by anything other than the truth. Finally, and perhaps most importantly for a member of the School Board, Chris is not afraid of detail. Indeed, he takes almost a perverse pleasure in reading the most complicated and convoluted documents and boiling them down to their essential points.
With his background as a lawyer and a long commitment to improving education, I believe Chris Liebig is just the person our School Board needs.
