Opinion: Why Will Muldoon is the ‘write-in choice’ for Juneau students

Eencyclopedic brain, energy amd drive.

In an era of disinformation, dogma, and disdain for facts, Juneau’s school board needs a candidate who will put his motherboard where his mouth is, and I believe that candidate is Will Muldoon.

Utilizing his history as a data processor for the State, Muldoon can recognize both the value and the boundaries of a statistics-based approach, leaving the door open to substantial, constructive conversation between differing viewpoints. Any mind that can intake, store, and process mountains of info and then turn around and communicate it as meaningful, understandable dialogue would benefit not only the school board, but the greater Juneau community as a whole.

Apart from his encyclopedic brain (He reads stats and regs for fun, for crying out loud!), Muldoon has the energy and drive to help our city succeed. He is a keen participant in Juneau activities, and has invested years on various boards, committees, and community improvement projects. He has made a more substantial effort towards enhancing the quality of life for all Juneauites than many have during their entire tenure in our capital city.

With his years of public service, experience with municipal administrative processes, and readiness to commit to our district’s success, Muldoon is an exceptional candidate for the Juneau School Board, and has my write-in vote at the upcoming election.
