Vasilios is an asset to our community

To the Editor:

I am writing this letter to ask you to re-elect Vasilios Lafkaditis to the Berne-Knox-Westerlo School Board on Tuesday, May 20.

Vasilios is a hard worker for the board. He is seriously concerned about the facts and figures, maybe because he is the managing director of Shaw Funding, a hedge fund.

Seeing a need for a store in Knox, he bought the closed Knox store. His plans are to have some kind of a store open again to serve the community.

Vasilios is a community volunteer. Perhaps you have seen him, along with his family, working at the Berne Reformed Church at its monthly Never Eat Alone dinner.

To lose this man on the school board would be a shame. He is an asset to our community.
