There is an open seat on the school board ready to be filled now! I would love to see some of the ding dongs who post ridiculous crap on here sign up. Here is your chance to fix the school system! Please hurry we need you now since you know everything! Also we should have about 20 running for school board since we have so many experts.

I would just be happy if more than 50% of the people pay attention to this local election and VOTE. I am always disappointed how many don't vote in local elections. They. Matter the most. It's where you live for crying out loud.
