Holland NLS Voting Record

To the Editor,

Please review the voting record of school board member Cherrish Holland before casting your vote.

1. On 5/9/16 Cherrish Holland expressed her support for the Gender Inclusion Policy which stated, "Each student shall be granted access to restrooms, locker rooms, and changing areas that align with the students gender identity consistently asserted at school."

2. Cherrish Holland voted on 4/10/17 to replace the grass with artificial turf on the main football field, costing the school district approximately $1,000,000.00 in initial expenses and subsequent upkeep.

3. Cherrish Holland voted on 6/12/17 to allow "The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-time Indian" to be taught in the eighth grade English curriculum. The book contains the "s" word; other words not allowed on the public airwaves; dialogue showing disrespect toward a female, a parent, and homosexual people; vulgar sexual dialogue; and religious blasphemy. Other books could have been substituted for this book.

In my opinion, Cherrish Holland does not deserve to be re-elected to the school board.

Sincerely, Dan Sletta, Spicer
