Dave Speak Blessed by Supportive Family

Julia Speak has a wry sense of humor which she inherited from her dad.
Emily Speak's love of reading developed in part out of the family practice of bedtime reading -- a ritual in which Emily participated right up to her Senior year at Claremont High School, when the press of homework and activities finally prevailed.
Margaret Speak is absolutely comfortable at public activities -- a condition which she developed while sitting on her dad's lap at school board meetings and running around her mom's office.
As for Beverly -- well, let's just say that perhaps after this election campaign, Dave may be able to stop having to introduce himself as "Beverly's husband." The candidate himself has said that he argued for signs that displayed only the family name in hopes that a certain number of voters would presume that Beverly is running and lend their support on that basis.
In lots of ways the candidate's best qualities are reflected in his family. He's funny. He's a quick study. He's at home in public places. And he's got Beverly's example of community service to keep him humble. He's the right person for the school board this election.
