Fennville Public Schools: Tobias Hutchins

Fennville Public Schools has two six-year terms and two four-year terms available.

Incumbent John Raak is joined in the race for the two six-year terms by Bernie Garlock and Tobias Hutchins.

Incumbent Julio Cesar Almanza and newcomer Juliet Michele are running unopposed for the four-year terms.

Candidates were each asked what they thought of the superintendent’s decisions and how they would address the district’s budget.

Tobias Hutchins

Hutchins, 21, is a lifelong resident of the district and now lives in Manlius Township. He graduated from Fennville High School in 2011 and is now at Grand Valley State University double-majoring in public and nonprofit administration and political science with a minor in music.

“I am a recent Fennville graduate, a substitute teacher in the district and a volunteer, so I can bring many different experiences and new perspectives to the table. I am not afraid to ask questions and will be a voice for community.

“Superintendent Dirk Weeldreyer has Fennville on a sound fiscal path and has done a nice job of being involved in the community.

“Computer skills in our schools, class sizes/opportunity, and the relationship between teachers and administration concern me.

“We must remain fiscally sound but still provide quality opportunities for our students. If elected, I want to look for ways outside of the traditional budget to provide new and innovative educational ideas for our students.”
