Believe it or not, spring election day is upon us. Today April 4th, 2017 has an important WI statewide race for school superintendent between liberal incumbent Tony Evers and challenger Lowell Holtz.
Evers supports Common Core while Holtz opposes it. If you support FEDERAL control of education, then Evers is your man. If you support LOCAL control of education (the way it should be), then Holtz is the candidate you should support. It’s a classic case of liberal establishment verses reformer. We know how you should vote.
Other races are on the ballot. If you live in a school district that is having a spending referendum, we would simply encourage you to vote “NO”. School Districts, like all of us, need to live within their means and budgets. All too often school districts are bloated at the top with overpaid administrators. The money is not going into the classroom.
Carefully examine candidates at the local level. If you are not sure where they stand, find out. Fort Atkinson common council has one candidate who claimed recently that the community is so safe that the police do not need to carry guns! That is what’s out there folks! Be careful!
