Evan Briggs


District 6 - Leslie Harris' region; she's not running again

Rosie McCarter

Gina Topp

Maryanne Wood

By tomorrow, I will have interviewed  4 of the candidates; I'm still waiting for replies to my invite from six of them. I will not be interviewing the incumbents because 1) they have a track record and 2) there are taped interviews with them.

We gave up and are moving to a private school next year. Even if they arrest the decline in quality and standards, it will take longer than our kid has to reverse things back to where they were circa 2016 when we made the call to move where we did for an SPS school.
Aramis, I hear this a lot. Naturally, it is sad for those who can't afford private but I also hear from parents who are making a personal sacrifice in their savings and other spending to send their kids to a private school.

Meanwhile, people like Liza Rankin just put the blame on housing and birth rates.

This district continues to dig its own hole.
