Election Guide 2013: No endorsement for Thompson School Director District F


Thompson School District R2-J
Director District F

Gerald Lauer
Carl Langner
[no endorsement]

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.

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.

We issue no endorsement for this race.
