Local elections are important.

I live in a rural red county in blue Illinois. I am a Democratic precinct committee leader and I pay attention to who is running for what.

I discovered recently that two of the six candidates running for school board in my community home school their children. Why? They are very right-wing anti-maskers. I have known one of them since he was a child.

People who home school their children have no business making decisions for our school district. They do not support our schools. It is clear to me that these two have an axe to grind. I am spreading the word with phone calls and emails. I will be writing some LTTEs later today.

Pay attention to local elections, everyone!

1. I'm in a red, rural county, too. In NM

We had a woman move to Southern New Mexico from Dallas TX and ran for school board two years ago with a platform: No CRT, No mask and No Restorative Justice (huh? Who tf is opposed to restorative justice). She also homeschools her children.

I recruited a candidate to run against her and our candidate won.

Two years later, this woman moved to the School District whose school board member is now up for reelection.

Recruiting candidates to run is so important.
Thank you for calling and spreading the word.
