School board elections are to be nonpartisan for a reason. Partisan elections emphasize politics that are not helpful in selecting school board members.
Furthermore, party labels distract voters from asking who has the knowledge and skills to serve the educational needs of students. All party affiliations have a vested interest in local public education.
The strength of our community is directly tied to economic development and to creating a community that attracts more business and industry. Both are directly affected by the training of our future workforce. Smart change is needed.
School Board candidates must work collaboratively as a five-person board to make careful decisions to help our school district improve in spite of diminishing resources. We need a board to create strong schools today to ensure a strong community and a strong America for our future.
We invite our neighbors who wish to work toward smart change to join us in the effort.
