Becky Erwin is a no-go. One thing Seminole does not need is more right-wingers. Her website doesn't show much experience, but there are several pages dedicated to her being the only "True Conservative". Great--anti-government teabaggers on the school board for PUBLIC schools.
Endorsements by wingnuts and something called the "Ronald Reagan Assemblies", along with pictures of far right conservatives like Marco Rubio don't inspire confidence.
There are already too many wingnuts in our school district pushing ideology to the detriment of our children. We don't need another.
Skip Becky for District 5.
In fact, DEFINTELY skip Jeanne Morris as well. She is the incumbent, and one of the ones who rolled over for the superintendent's diabolical plan to allow highly paid administrators to "double-dip" by collecting their obscene pensions along with their paychecks by "retiring" for 30 days. This kind of stuff makes me sick.
Anybody running against these two would probably automatically get my vote...but it so happens the third option is actually a qualified, good choice:
We prefer Tina Calderone, a successful businesswoman with a doctorate in education. She proved her commitment to the county's public schools as director for five years of its fundraising foundation.
Ms. Calderone vows to put her business experience to work on the board and "leave no stone unturned" in looking for savings. She has some ideas worth exploring, including outside audits and energy-saving initiatives. She promises to ask tough questions.
They are all GOP, but Tina is qualified and the most sane.
