Our community should not fall prey to the partisan and politically-funded movement aimed at school boards that is sweeping across our nation. Our School Board members are volunteer servant leaders who work together with professional educators and parents to foster our district’s vision: "Each student, every time, empowered to succeed.” These local positions were never intended to be and should not ever become partisan roles.
Municipalities are faced with complex day-to-day issues affecting actual people that require a reasoned, pragmatic approach. No ‘side’ has a monopoly on good ideas and we must all work together to solve the problems that affect our community.
Ask the candidates themselves about whether they have accepted outside backing. Look them in the eye and ask them why they are a board member and how being non-partisan is part of that. Ask us.
Preserve our city and village. Keep local elections non-partisan.
