One of my daughter’s favorite stories is the adventure that happened to my late wife and me on the day after our wedding in 1987. I’ll spare you the details and get to the bottom line: Everything I needed to know about the person I married was confirmed that morning.

A few days ago, while I was in New York, I received a message – the type of message that is so rare, so meaningful, and so insightful that one could not help but believe that a higher power was involved in its delivery.

The message was very personal and I am not at liberty to share it with you, but if you have any faith at all in my judgment, here is what you need to know:

The message confirmed what I believed about the very good character of Dr. Gina Nick, who is running for a school board seat in Area 4. It supported my belief that she is exactly the quality type of person we need as a trustee and I urge you to vote for her.
