To Whom It May Concern:

Due to the recent letter released by Principal Gary Pflueger, we feel the need to demonstrate the depth of support for him within our community. 

Unfortunately, there is a misconception that there is only a small minority of Gary Pflueger supporters. 

In reality, his supporters are numerous and far reaching. Because Gary had the courage to come out publicly and announce his wish to stay, we feel it is now appropriate, and crucial, for our voices to be heard. Therefore, we the undersigned want to document our support and share publicly that we value Gary Pflueger as principal of Friday Harbor Elementary School and treasure what he brings to our community.

Sincerely,
