A man of action

on Tuesday, 24 May 2016. Posted in Letters to the Editor, Opinions

I am a retired educator from Florence School District 1. I’m asking you to vote for Alexis D. Pipkins Sr. for Florence City Council District 2. I have known Alexis since he was a young boy selling barbecue sandwiches and skins with his father. I’ve watched him grow from a young boy to a grown man, a husband, a father, as well as an advocate for young children and his community. As an employee of FSD1, I was paid once a month.

It was a struggle as a single parent to manage expenses from pay check to pay check. When Alexis became a school board member this is one of the first issues he tackled. He worked tirelessly demonstrating professionalism, leadership and determinations to change to way all teachers were paid.

The second most important issue Alexis addressed was to keep North Vista Elementary School a community school. Numerous meetings were held with district administrators, architects, NV teachers and staff, in addition to the community. North Vista Elementary School was built on its original site. Dianne W.
