Southbridge School Committee Candidates - June 6, 2016


  1. Glad to have a ReceiverJune 21, 2016 at 3:40 PM

    Listening to these candidates running unopposed for SC states volumes about why our School district was taken over by the state.

    Candidates number 1 and 2 have no skin in the game and displayed absolutely no knowledge or experience what so ever about our school district. No one should be shocked that attendance is nonexistent at our politicized dog and pony show AKA our Educational board meetings.
    They do however add diversity with a strategically pushed agenda.

    Candidate number 3 is the political maestro pushing this agenda and lying about her political beginnings. (the billboard was of a white woman and not a Hispanic one) She speaks of transitioning to positions but the language used is the language of self promoting state democratic politics and not of local education reform and improvement.

    This candidate panel does not instill confidence of leadership required to stop school choice or to be able to administer a turn around plan, in fact they probably make the work of the receiver that much harder.

    Some states have no one as a ballot option requiring another campaign and others to step forward and run. I wish this state had option for this election. Meanwhile, I never thought I'd be happy that our school district was in receivership until now.

    Just one thought on the previous comment. Voters do have the option not voting for any of the candidates. The voter can: 1) just leave that portion of the ballot unmarked. 2) filling in the bubble where no one's name is listed and, 3) writing in a name in the write=in portion of the ballot.

    Maybe Glad to have a Receiver should organize a write-in campaign for "None of the Above". (to steal and idea from the Movie "Brewsters Million".)
