I need 3 recommendation letters to apply for a congressional nomination. I can either choose my AP US Histroy teacher (who was an English major in college) Or I can choose our school district's suerintendant. I don't know her personally but My father and I both know her husband through the American Legion. Her husband even told me I should get one from her. So my question is whom do I ask? Does having a letter from the superintendant have any more weight than a teacher?? ALSO, because I dont personally know the superintendant, I feel like a letter from my AP US History teacher would be a bit more personal.
