James "Jamie" Povlich

I'm running for school board because I believe in community service and the responsibility of the citizens to impact and identify needs of the city and more pointedly our educational system.

Secondly, I have a vested interest in the youth of our community, I have three children who attend schools in the Johnson City School System, I have served as a coach for numerous youth sport teams from a variety of schools, and I have taken on active roles in the PTA an active volunteer role at school.

Last is my knowledge of the benefits of a progressive educational system in a community, along with the personal gains of the public. These reasons represent my passion to serve as a member of the Johnson City School Board. Through my service, I seek to carry the torch to continually strive to improve each child's educational opportunity.

All of the candidates running for school board have and bring value to this board. Where I separate myself from others is that I have three children in the school system spread out over three campuses. I would say that I'm in touch with the students, faculty, and other parents with school age children. I can also add by sitting on various other boards over the last five years that I have developed working relationships with key city staff and members of the City Commission.

With the regards to education I have a degree in Urban Planning from E.T.S.U. and a professional background in business. My strengths are strategic planning and building relationships and finding common ground with a sensible approach. I appreciate the opportunity to earn your vote.

    Creeping landslide devouring part of Wyoming town

    A sudden lurch in a creeping landslide in the northwest Wyoming resort town of Jackson split a house in two and forced workers to abandon efforts to stabilize the hillside.
    No one can say precisely when the mountainside collapsing into this Wyoming resort town will give way. But it appears increasingly likely that when it does, it's going to take a piece of Jackson with it.
