(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) St. Joseph School District Board of Education candidate Kenneth Reeder says he's focused on championing the district taxpayers during his local campaign.

"I've been fighting tax issues for a long time, especially against the corruption and the miss spending of our money at the school district," Reeder said.

In clearing out any negative feelings towards the district, Reeder wants to put more focus on teachers.

"You never hear stories about how an administrator had an effect on some kid's life, but you hear stacks and reams and volumes about how a teacher was the difference in a child's life," Reeder said.

Reeder says supporting the teachers will build a foundation for a successful school district.

"When that person is highly motivated and highly paid, there's ten people waiting in line," Reeder said. "We can demand more, and we'll get more. that's where I want our money spent."

Moving forward Reeder says he looks forward to the change that comes with new people on the school board.

"The only way we can get change is to vote change," Reeder said.

Reeder will go up against six other candidates vying for one of three seats on the school board during the general election on April 3.
