LETTER: Johnson best choice for Sioux Falls School Board
On May 16, Sioux Falls School District (SFSD) voters will have the opportunity to elect a new school board member. Outgoing board member Cynthia Mickelson did a phenomenal job serving our district and leaves huge shoes to fill. First, we wish to thank Cynthia for her time and dedication to serving.
When looking at this year’s school board race, we are searching for someone who is the best fit to serve in this role with future generations in mind. We need a candidate who understands and respects the perspective and role a parent plays when it comes to their SFSD student; someone who knows what it feels like to be an employee of the SFSD and who has experience working with administrators and staff; a leader who is invested in the success of our students, our teachers, and our community overall.

We believe that candidate is Dawn-Marie Johnson.
Johnson is a non-partisan candidate running for this non-partisan position, and we believe she has the right credentials and the best intentions for the job. She brings a unique background and skillset that will be valuable to the school board. As a young family with young kids, it’s important to us that we feel represented and can trust elected leadership at the local level. We hope that you will join us in voting for Dawn-Marie Johnson for Sioux Falls School Board.
