With pleasure, I write in support of mayoral candidate Ryan Marshall. I have followed Ryan’s educational and business pathway for the last 10 years since he enrolled in my college at Drake.
Ryan has a unique undergraduate degree in business education that included field work and student teaching in urban and suburban Des Moines-area secondary schools. He was one of 12 students selected to serve on the prestigious Dean’s Advisory Committee. He found a way to listen, learn and then help me to enact improvements to teacher education.
If elected, he could be counted on to respect and acknowledge the work of other Dixon community leaders while injecting new ideas to improve the programs and services in your city.
Ryan comes from a loyal and successful Dixon family, and like his predecessors, he is committed to servant leadership. Simply stated, “Ryan Marshall gets it. Now, you need to get him elected to be your new mayor.”
Janet McMahill is dean at the Drake University School of Education.
