Just a quick message to all of you out there who may be wondering what I decided to do regarding the Board of Education election. I took a few hours yesterday – yes, I now know where my children get their procrastination gene from as petitions were due at 5 pm yesterday – to walk around a neighborhood in town and gather signatures. By 2 pm, I was at the District Office, getting the petition and a campaign spending form which was due yesterday also notarized and turning all of that and my biography in to the Clerk of the Board.
It is official. I am running. I was amazed at some of the people who wanted to ask questions and talk about the district just as I was walking around for signatures. There are a lot of people out there that want to know more of what is going on.
I am sure that a second blog is coming, just to keep my thoughts about this out there.
Oh yes, just an aside. I ran into another board member at the high school drama club production last night. She checked at 5 pm and I am running unopposed.
