Thompson School District R2-J
Director District F
District F represents Monroe, Mary Blair and Winona elementary schools; Bill Reed and Conrad Ball middle schools; and Mountain View High School. Gerald Lauer has recently joined Ferguson High School’s Accountability Committee and attended school board and back-to-school meetings, and while he seems willing to dig into the district’s issues, he’s the husband of the school district’s executive director of education, which compromises independence and autonomy.
His opponent, Carl Langner, a former engineer for Shell Oil Co., retired to Loveland just five years ago. While Lauer may be too deeply entrenched, Langner doesn’t seem to have a solid background on the district’s history to draw from.
