Local elections are important. [View all]

I live in a rural red county in this very blue state. 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!
