Read Mark's Endorsement by the Hillsboro Tribune
"We recommend challenger Mark Watson"
My wife Ginny and I have lived in the Hillsboro School District for over 15 years. Our two children attended L.C. Tobias Elementary, Brown Middle School and Century High School.
In 2002 I started a sports technology company creating products for teams in Major League Baseball and the National Hockey League (be sure to ask me about your favorite team!).
At our company's outset I talked to local coaches to recruit student athletes as our first employees. With our two kids in band, I know that it takes a combination of academics, athletics, the arts and other activities to create a well rounded person.
If elected, I will work to ensure that we continue to prepare our students for college, career, community and beyond.
"Mark has the leadership skills to develop a high functioning school board for the Hillsboro School District. His strong collaborative communication skills along with positive working relationships based on respect will support policies and procedures that engage students in innovative and successful learning experiences. He will make decisions based on what's
best for our children!"
