Ramon Montaño is running for re-election to the Rio Rancho school board, and I believe he has demonstrated that he deserves our vote to continue to serve our children.

Ramon has maintained a positive and open line of communication with the community regarding how our schools serve our children.

As past president and vice president of the school board, he has shown that he makes smart decisions about the use of taxpayer dollars and the safety of our students. Ramon has supported mental-health services that are so important to assuring the physical and psychological safety of our students, staff and families.

He has demonstrated leadership and positive results as a school board member. We have the best school system in the state, so I’m voting for Ramon to keep a great thing going.
