To the Editor,

I am writing this letter to ask for your support and vote for MELISSA STARNATER for the WISD School Board. I have known Melissa for 51 years an assure you I know her character and work ethic better than anyone. Of course as her Father some might say that I am biased, but believe me when I tell you that she has a heart for service, an extremely strong sense of right and wrong, a willingness to work hard, and strong Christian values. She has always based her professional and personal life on ethics and excellence.

Melissa and I have been researching our Texas roots. She is a 5th generation Texan whose 6th Great Grandfather fought at the Seige of Bexar, and she has strong Texas values. Along with those Texas values she loves and desires to assist and promote Texas Public Schools. She understands the values of working together to achieve goals, and even as a child she was always one to ask the hard and sometimes difficult questions that I found only stretched and strengthened me as a parent.

Having served in Law Enforcement for 40 years as a Deputy Chief with the Dallas Police Department, and later as Sheriff of Kendall County, I’m proud that my daughter is continuing a tradition of public service. I’m truly blessed and lucky to have a daughter like Melissa! As you can see I am proud of her and love her and hope you will give her serious consideration for this very important position.


Roger Duncan, Kendall County Sheriff (Retired)
