I am writing in support of Adam Holland and his candidacy for the Bettendorf School Board. I have worked alongside Adam on various projects for the past four years. Over the course of that time, Adam has shown to be thoughtful, diligent and fiscally responsible.
Our district is in a time of transition, ranging from our board to our administration, and Adam has the background and abilities to bring stability back to our district at a time when it is much needed.
From a planning aspect, Adam has always presented a fiscal year work plan that identifies clear goals with a plan and budget of how to achieve those goals. Over the past year, I challenged Adam to identify ways to reduce our budget in order for our geography to be competitive from a financial aspect. Adam accepted this challenge with a nearly 10 percent reduction in revenue while making sure that all property owners’ needs were still being met.
Along with the skill sets that I have mentioned, Adam is constantly looking for ways to improve. It is this type of thoughtfulness and leadership that our community needs as we move forward.
