I'll be supporting Andrew and Tyus for school board. As a college student I feel my education from Middletown has been sufficient but lacked 21st century materials for example science labs. The labs at Middletown lacked the environment and materials that I am experiencing in college. The bond issue is important and I hope this example for a recent MCSD graduate will be informative.

How about meeting the needs of the 20th century by providing enough books so kids can do their HOMEwork at HOME like we all remember doing? If you want to help the community and provide a good education, how about starting with some common core value?

Good that you feel that way Mr. Young, but it is time for a change. Voting for the same old guard, especially Tyus, who has been a career fixture behind the desk for far too long, will yield only more stagnation and, at best, snails pace progress. It'll never change unless we change the players/approach. It has been decades since we have had decent schools here. If progress has been made, it has come far too slowly with a monumental sum of money spent supporting that slow growth. Not a good ROI so far IMO. We need new people who can offer more meaningful progress instead of the standard features we have now. It just isn't happening fast enough nor with enough results. "It'll take more time" has lost it's luster after hearing it for decades. Time has run out on the programs that have been initiated. Time for a direction change with new people. Time for people to start getting their money's worth. Building new and changing the physical attributes of the district won't make a difference. Just make it "prettier". Changing what goes on inside the buildings (old or new) will. JMO
I'm so proud of my hometown and what it has become. Recall 'em all. Let's start over.

Vet,
 
I understand your position.  However, all four candidates (three plus a write-in) support the levy...so there is no difference among them on this single issue.
 
In my humble opinion, the best of this field (being able to vote for two) are Ms. Andrew and Mr. McClure.

Understand Mike. Just frustrating to know that there is no choice for me if all support the levy. McClure had his chance, and, as I recall, gave us more of the same old same old. Cookie cutter candidates, all of them. No one running who sees the lack of reasonable progress pace nor who wants to fight for the wallets of the people. Incredible that all think that new schools will make a difference. Do they not see that the first levy approval was not worth the money spent versus the return? Where is the ability to assess the situation? Mercy.

Vet,
 
Then look at it this way:
 
Would you rather have the pompous, supercilious, ill-informed Rev. Tyus???
 
If you vote for no one, that is who you are likely to get.

Need some write-in candidates that are all opposed to the levy and want to see quicker, upwardly mobile results for the money spent. If all support the levy, it won't make any difference to me. No one on the school board has seen the light as far as I'm concerned. Business as usual for another term. Again, cookie cutter candidates, with no individual, alternative thinking offered to the public. Sad.

Too late for write-in candidates.  Even write-in candidates have to register with the Board of Elections ahead of time.
