I am seeking your vote and your support as I run for my second term as a member of the Independent School District #279 Osseo Area Schools school board. This is not an easy job and a responsibility that I do not take lightly. After thoughtful consideration of the needs of the the board and the needs of the district I decided to run four years ago. After my successful election I was deeply grateful for the support of the community and I hope that my performance over the past three and half years has given you the trust to support me again on or before November 3, 2020. Issues will be discussed in this blog, and a list of significant concerns are located under About Mike Ostaffe. I am not a single issue candidate, and this is not a stepping stone to a county or state position. It is about providing professional, rational, thoughtful, and respectful governance leadership to the administration of District 279 so that they can provide an excellent education to each and every student in the district.
