Reeder, 'Riting, and 'Rithmetic a phrase from Reeder to show St. Joe Residents education should be top priority.</span>
(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) In case you forget to bring a pencil to the polls, one candidate has you covered.

Kenneth Reeder's red pencils carry a simple slogan, "Reeder, 'riting, and 'rithmetic." For Reeder, it's a catchy tune that means a lot to him and he hopes it will show how good St. Joseph has it.

"We don't have to be ashamed of what we've done," said Kenneth Reeder, a write-in candidate for the St. Joseph School District's school board. "We have invested in our education and probably in the smartest way."

Reeder is running as a write-in candidate for the school board.

More people might notice him as the opposition for PACT's $42 million bond issue. But he hopes running will open communication.

"We welcome that," said Reeder. "We've had a lot of behind the scenes meetings actually with the other side to try to get together on this so we can roll the ball in the same direction."

Reeder describes himself as an entrepreneur. A businessman, Reeder is a lobbyist for the people.
The same people he hopes will get him on the board.

"I think win or lose, come after next Tuesday, I think there is going to be a big change from here forward," said Reeder. "There's no sense in fighting each other."

When it comes to the two new schools, Reeder believes now is not the time as he compares other districts in the region.

"Just look to the south of us, a few miles," said Reeder. "They're fighting for accreditation. Not St. Joe. We've done well. We have a good system."

Reeder is aware of the obstacle he faces. But all he asks is spell his name fairly accurate.
