Letter to the Editor: Support for Dan Storck
A community member voices support for Mount Vernon School Board rep Dan Storck.
I want to voice my strong support for re-electing Dan Storck to the school board. My first interactions with Dan were in 2004. What struck me was the deep interest he took in our community's concerns and how diligently he worked to find creative solutions. Through the years, he has continued to be great listener and leader.
Most recently, he was instrumental in instituting universal full-day kindergarten, demonstrating that he supports all children in the Mount Vernon district, even those in the two schools without FDK. I saw Dan not only fight for county-wide FDK but also for teachers pay and for summer school in Mount Vernon. He is an excellent advocate for his district.
With all the upcoming retirements from the school board, we have never needed Dan's leadership more. A number of programs of particular importance to Mount Vernon may be at risk. Mount Vernon and Fairfax County need Dan Storck's experience on the school board.
Editor's Note: Randy Becker was a Mount Vernon District resident, whose precinct now falls under the Springfield district due to redistricting.
