Free Endorsements for School Board Candidates from the DCSW Blog
We are all about community input and conversation, so I put it out to you bloggers -- who do you endorse for school board in your district?
Read my report on the forum I attended (hosted by eduKALB's sponsor) in Dunwoody by clicking here. Additionally, watch the YouTube videos of that same forum by clicking here. Then, in the comments, please feel free to boldly endorse your favorite candidates!
I'll go first - I'm a big fan of Nancy Jester in District 1. That woman is smart - she knows numbers - she has children in the system and she is unafraid to roll up her sleeves. In District 3 - I'll go with Cory Wilson - a solid family-oriented, active parent, having started the Fathers Being Involved Program at Oak View. In District 5, I am solidly behind Kirk A. Nooks. He has a very focused idea of where our school system needs to go in the future and as an educator/administrator at the college level, he knows what he is talking about. District 7 has a seat at the table with the name Donna Edler on it. Another smart lady with an accounting degree - a numbers person and a parent - Donna has the skills necessary to manage the board's budgetary tasks. And in District 9 we really need Ella Smith's teacher's perspective and high level of integrity.
So let's hear it - who are you going to vote for on November 2 and why?
