Letter to the editor: All voters should be informed

Posted

During the 2017-18 school year, there are crucial issues facing taxpayers. There is a school board election and possible vote to increase taxes to support our schools in 2018. Many of these issues focus on communicating with parents and informing them. Schools host candidate forums to learn about what individuals running have in store for the future of our schools. These learning forums lack communication with the majority of voters and educating the 70 percent of non-parent taxpayers.

The majority of communication is after the fact. Efforts need to be made to inform all stakeholders so that all can make informed decisions and not rely on who spends the most money pushing their slate of candidates. Communicate and get the 70 percent informed. If candidate forums are held, communicate to all stakeholders in your attendance area and not just parents.
