Letter to the editor: Neese Chilton is worthy candidate for board

 I am writing to voice my support for Neese Chilton who is running for Owen County School Board for district five. I have had the honor and pleasure of knowing Neese and her family personally for five years since she has trusted me to watch her son during the day time (I have known Neese for much longer but the past five years I have gotten close to her and her family).  Neese is from Owen County and lives in the Wheatley area.

She went to school here and her and her husband, Tim, have a daughter that attends Owen County Elementary and their son will also be enrolled in kindergarten here in Owen County next year. 

She has the best interest of our kids at heart since any decisions made will also be affecting her own children.

My husband and I have children in the school system as well and I trust her to make the right decisions that will help our schools to be the best they can be.  She is very personable and friendly and would welcome any calls and concerns from the people in her district if she was elected. She would take every concern into consideration and will be a great voice for citizens in district five.

She has a financial background as well since she is a financial advisor for Fidelity Investments. This background is a tremendous asset since she will have a say in the way our tax money is being spent.

I pray you will vote for Neese on Nov. 2.  She is a write-in for district five so please write down Neese Chilton for Owen County School Board! She is the change that the Owen County School system needs to continue to move forward!
