Brenda Steidel

Brenda Steidel participates in a November meeting of the Vision Forward steering committee, a panel of some two-dozen members of the community who have organized large public meetings on the St. Joseph School District, the first of which is set for Tuesday. Steidel is also running for the Board of Education.

Years of work as a substitute teacher, foster mother and advocate for special education students leave Brenda Steidel resolved to become, with hopes of the voters’ blessing, a member of the St. Joseph Board of Education.

Steidel is the fifth of five hopefuls for the St. Joseph Board of Education who has given an introductory interview on her aspirations for the spring ballot, in which voters will choose two people to serve three-year terms. The ballot also features Isaura Garcia, Colby Oyerly, James Kindred and Kim Miller. The two candidates selected will replace Tami Pasley and Bryan Green, who did not file for reelection.
