The children of Mesa County deserve nonpartisan school board members who do not intend to push their personal political agendas onto the backs of children if they are elected.
Without question, a school board election is the one election that should never be political. It should be about electing board members who care about kids, support teachers and do what they are charged to do — oversee the generalities of the district. In short, school board members must do what is best for students. Making the upcoming election one about political gain and the privatization of our entire district is repugnant.
I am confident that parents, grandparents, students of voting age and anyone else who truly cares about children will see through their agenda and will vote for the candidates who are running for school board who have no interest in making this a political race, but are pro-public education, based on accountability, transparency, responsibility and doing what is best for kids.
Mesa County has never been a wildly or even mildly liberal area, so making this a political race is sad. Please listen to all the candidates and consider what they are saying. If you care about the education of students in Mesa County, please listen and get the facts.
Do what’s best for kids and public education. Please vote in support of children, not politics, when you receive your ballot in the mail.
