May 2- Election Day

Really! Tomorrow before heading to Danville for a seminar, I get to vote. I love voting. I have never voted in extremely close contests but I still feel like my vote counts.
My Votes for school board:

Leah Puryear and JuanDiego Wade- strong candidates, will add value with their respective perspectives; Leah- as director of Upward Bound she knows how schools fail students; and Juan because he has a child approaching school age, and works well within the administrative framework but can still shake things up.

Ned Michie- experienced, prepared and approachable

Never ran into Sue Lewis- I am sure she is delightful & well-qualified but I just dont know that from the little I have read/heard about her.
Charley- good guy and great experience with the special ed population; likely if Leah and JuanDiego were not running together, I might vote for him.
Vance High- I wish he could take a joke and all 'school security' is not good security.

City Council- this race has me disillusioned
Dave Norris - truly interested in assisting residents keep their housing; one of the good guys.
Julian T since he is not Rob Schilling.

Thanks for stopping by my site.

I like Ned Michie too. As for the other school board candidates, I still don't know, but I'm leaning toward Charles K. or Wade.
