Krackeler is the Complete Package

By Bob Turner | Letters to the Editor

The Saratoga school board is going to face hard decisions about how to maintain the excellent quality of our schools in the face of unprecedented financial challenges. Tony Krackeler is an ideal candidate for the board.

After graduating from Stanford, he worked as a teacher and high school volleyball coach for 10 years. He knows how important both the classroom and sports are to children and their families. For the past 20 years, he has worked as the President and CEO of Krackeler Scientific Inc, a global distributor of scientific equipment, including facemasks and protective equipment, used in pharmaceutical, biomedical, environmental and industrial laboratories. He will bring his operations, finance, personnel management, and contracts expertise to help manage the $130 million school district budget and over 1,100 employees. 

He is committed to Saratoga Springs schools. He has three kids in the public schools and has served on the Lake Ave Building Leadership Team, the Superintendent-Parent Forum, and the Maple Avenue Middle School Principal Search. I encourage you to vote for Tony Krackeler in Saratoga School Board election when you receive your ballot in the mail on June 1 or 2.
