On Tuesday April 3 we have a choice to vote for persons who will be responsible for making decisions regarding the welfare of our children as a member of the Hannibal Public Schools Board of Education. I encourage you to vote for Ryan Rapp.

I have known Ryan and his family for many years. I have worked with him in his business life and he has been incredibly helpful in navigating the banking process. We have worked together coaching our children’s sports teams. Ryan shows tremendous patience and dedication to helping all of the children excel and enjoy their experience. He dedicates his time and effort without reservation. Having children of nearly the same age we have spent much time together. Ryan is a man of impeccable character. Ryan is honorable and trustworthy and a good friend. Our children play together and spend much time together. I trust Ryan with the welfare of my children in my personal life and also in the Hannibal Public School System. I believe Ryan has the best interest of all of our children at heart. Ryan has knowledge, dedication, and a true desire to make our community a better place as he has shown through the many charitable organizations he has been involved in such as the United Way, Kids in Motion, and currently as a school board member among the many other boards he has donated his time and effort. Ryan has a background in finance with many years in banking which will help insure the financial stability of our schools. Ryan is dedicated to the improvement of our community and also to improving the lives of our children. I encourage everyone to go out on April 3 and cast your vote for Ryan Rapp for School Board.
