Kristen Draper

For Poudre School Board

“As a parent, educator, and public librarian, I believe that education should be the great equalizer, and I also know that even in a wonderful, welcoming school district like Poudre, there is still an opportunity gap that we need to close. Every child deserves an education, and I am committed to making that happen.”
