Having worked for the Smecca family for over 40 years, I have come to know Johnny Smecca and his generous spirit well. Over the years I have been treated like family, and he has shown to truly be concerned about his employees' well-being.

Along those lines, I have also seen that he has always made it a point to support the school district, its teachers and students, through his participation and fundraisers. I can personally attest to his desire to make a difference in our community.

I believe Johnny Smecca is the most qualified for the open school board position because he is a great leader. He's able to bring people together to work toward a common goal, and he's willing to fight for what he believes to be the best for the future of our kids and our community.

Two of my children graduated from Ball High School and I honestly believe that they would have benefited from him being on the board of trustees. Please join me in supporting a person who has shown what a great leader looks like.
