Voting in a municipal election has the most direct impact on your day-to-day life. From zoning & pedestrian crossings to sidewalk clearing or garbage collection & community trails, where you work, live and send your children to school is where your voice matters most.
Unfortunately there’s a great deal of apathy about municipal elections, despite the fact one is electing individuals who will decide local education matters, transportation infrastructure, and how your property taxes are spent. Each and every day, the decisions made by these people affect your commute to work, your child’s experience in the classroom, and how your city is going to look in 20 years.

It’s really difficult to track down information on the candidates for Trustee for the School Boards. One can view the Nomination Forms online (scroll down the page) but there is no position statement or any indication of what the candidate stands for. If you see a debate for school board Trustees scheduled, let us know!
