It is my pleasure to provide this endorsement for Brandt Dick as he seeks election for the Superintendent of the North Dakota Department of Public Instruction. I have known Brandt for over twenty years as a school administrator and activities director. He is highly respected by his colleagues across the state because of his involvement and leadership duties in numerous professional organizations.
Brandt has continued to foster the growth of a higher order of professionalism for educators, athletic administrators and school administrators at the local and state level. Evidence to his accomplishments are present through his commitment to apply current educational standards and practices in his vision of education.
He is eager to provide valuable assistance to his colleagues, with relevant information or the most current data regarding a wide scope of topics. His refined communication skills equip him to effectively listen, seek understanding, and provide expert dialog to his colleagues and associates.
Brandt demonstrates a positive attitude and a mature approach to his professional work. His extensive experience in working with student activities as well as his teaching and administrative duties provides him with a diverse knowledge of a school’s culture. His work ethic and dedication towards education separates him from the average administrator. He promotes high standards and expectations for both the staff and students. Through these efforts the students are given every opportunity to be successful both in life and their involvement with school. It is for these reasons he would be a leader for the Department of Public Instruction.

I am pleased to write this letter of support for Mr. Brandt Dick, as he campaigns for the office of ND Superintendent of Public Instruction. I have known Brandt for 7 years, we became acquainted through a mutual friend initially. Since that time, I have gotten to know him professionally through the legislative process while I served in the ND House of Representatives. It was always a pleasure to see Brandt at the legislature. He became my "go to guy" relating to any and all issues that pertained to PK-12 education. I have no doubt that he would be a terrific Superintendent of Public Instruction. His active involvement in the legislative process would be extremely helpful in this position. He also has a deep understanding and grasp of the funding formula and is very well respected in the PK-12 educational realm in this state. If I were in a position to “hire” Brandt, I would not hesitate. He will be a tremendous addition to our state elected officials as he would bring a wealth of knowledge and respect to the table. I therefore would like to express my support for Brandt Dick for the office of Superintendent of Public Instruction. Sincerely, Former Rep. Jay Seibel - Beulah — Jay Seibel
