While I like all three candidates I am disappointed to see that they are all running unopposed. 

Are there no other people in Monroe who have the time, money, patience, thick-skin and intelligence to sit on the school board?

We didn't always have a shortage of School Board Candidates. I remember several surprise upsets in the early years of our school district. What has changed? We have more people and fewer candidates. 

I bet it is because the way we treat our elected officials. I bet no one wants to be talked down to by a voter who disagrees with them. Or worse.

It's always been that way. People who care go out on a limb and run for office. Our country was fonded on a representative government of the people by the people. And yes even 200 years ago people in public office got spat upon, or worse. 

If you love Monroe, if you have 2 nights a month for excellent pay and great benefits, I urge you to run for school board!

Amen

Who wants to give up their time just to become the head hell catcher of all things that people don't like

Thank you to those that can endure this
