  1. thanks for posting this! i had been trying to find the full list!

  2. Looking for information on each candidate and where they stand on specific issues, what their experience is, agenda, etc.
    Not finding much online... any suggestions? MNPS site has no info either.

  3. Information about all of the candidates can be hard to come by. Check back often, I will be running press releases if they are sent to me,information on which groups are endorsing which candidates and links to other news stories that shed light on the candidates and I may be making endorsements of my own.

  4. dolan is legit. she's got a lotta community experience (has sat on a bunch of public education-related boards) and is a cpa/businesswoman. i think shes the only person who can actually change the way we run things by stopping the waste of public funds and focusing them on what matters most- the kids, the students, kinda the future of america if you know what i mean

  5. Disgruntled Republican- thanks for always keeping us informed. As one of the best blogs on the internet, we're very lucky to have it in TN.

    Here are my two cents on the school board district 9 race:

    Margaret Dolan is the most qualified, has the most experience, and has the best ideas.

    Yes, Amy has kids in public school- BIG DEAL! Nobody needs to apologize for working hard enough to afford sending their kids to better schools and Im sick of everyone talking about "OH HER KIDS ARENT IN PUBLIC SCHOOL" blah blah blah. Yes- she chose NOT to burden our already overly inefficient, government run "schools"

    Dolan has been working with public schools her entire life. If anything, we NEED someone with exposure to how "they" (better schools) do it.

    We need to raise standards and get this show on the road: i feel like people are so hypocritical. we talk about private industry as the future and engine of america but then lambast folks for sending their children to private schools. this has GOT to stop. private does not = evil.
