There are a couple of momentous votes coming up for the Helena School District in the next few days, with votes on a bond to begin the process of giving our youngest students the kinds of classroom space and facilities they need to be safe and better educated and a vote to replace two long-serving members of the Helena School Board.
I have strong feelings about the bond (pass it! pass it now!) and one candidate I definitely intend to endorse for the School Board, but I’m interested in learning why others are supporting the candidates they do. Other than one candidate who likely will not get my vote given his weak answers to the newspaper this week, I am entirely open-minded about the other candidates.
If any of you have strong feelings in favor of one or more candidates, consider this an open thread to promote the candidate(s) you think will best guide our school district. The Facebook page is also a great place to respond.
You can also certainly drop me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org with a brief opinion or a piece you’d like published here. This is a chance to persuade the Rhetoric teacher, so I expect quality argumentation if you want to win the day. 🙂
I plan to publish my endorsement on Thursday of this week. You’ve got a few days to influence me before I do.
