Partisan politics interfere with children’s future
Thanks to Eastern Wake News for coverage of the District 1 school board race.
Don McIntyre supports the bond but isn’t voting for it because he doesn’t want Democrats to administer the money. That makes absolutely no sense whatsoever; he sounds like John Kerry flip flopping on his support of the war!
As the father of a 2-year-old and a 4-year-old entering school next year, I want a school board member who will make the best decision for children, regardless of party affiliation. There is already too much partisan divide in politics. All politics are local; nothing demonstrates this more than the school board.
I cannot consciously support a candidate that brings such a divisive opinion to the school board. I support the Wake County bond issue, regardless of who is spending the money, because it will help create the schools I want my children to attend.
I will also be supporting Tom Benton and hope you will join me, because he supports the bond and brings more than 30 years of dedication to public education. We need more people like Tom Benton on the school board, not partisan hacks that play politics with my children’s future.
