While most of us focus on Mayoral and Council candidates during our municipal elections, very little is said about our School Board elections that take place at the same time. When you go to vote for Mayor and Council, you also have to vote for the school board elections of whichever school district you reside in. This is a very important part of municipal elections as it determines who will be running and operating your public school system, which effects our children, and grandchildren. I advise to all readers to go to your local school district site and find the link to your current board members and to the current individuals running in the election, and look into each candidate. For current board members it's important to give good thought into how they have performed in their term(s) as members of the school board, and weather you think they should continue or if new candidates should be elected.
