ESU 6 – As per Thursday’s Go Big Ed story, Angie Eberspacher for this east-central Nebraska board. By popular request, since I called the move by board member Alan Jacobsen to help elect a fellow fiscal conservative to that board as being like Paul Revere’s midnight ride, here’s a poem parody I’d like to see on Wednesday morning:
Listen, my children,
You’re in for a shocker;
(Note: Nebraska has already supplied the nation’s poet laureate, and it ain’t me.) :>)
Seriously, now, here are more recommendations, based in large part on the excellent service provided on www.voterinformation.org and also www.omahalwv.org:
STATE BOARD OF EDUCATION:
District 2, John Murante
(Ann Mactier is one of my role models, and I’m very grateful for her longtime public service in advocating proper reading instruction. But this is a very tough bureaucracy, and I believe new blood is needed on that board in issues that go beyond reading. I believe Mrs. Mactier would be more effective promoting proper reading instruction to influential people outside of the education establishment, with whom she has fabulous connections, since those inside it have rebuffed her for so long, much to my chagrin, since she’s been sooooo right for sooooo long on reading. Let Murante battle in the front lines while she brings in the cavalry!)
OMAHA PUBLIC SCHOOL BOARD:
District 2, Karen Shepard
District 6, Jim Enright
District 8, Mark E. Rosenquist
MILLARD PUBLIC SCHOOL BOARD:
ELKHORN PUBLIC SCHOOL BOARD:
BLAIR COMMUNITY SCHOOLS BOARD:
District 9, Scott Knudsen
District 13, Anthony FastHorse
District 31, Ben Thompson
If there’s a candidate in your area you’d like to recommend, please alert me with your reasons why, and I’ll add to this list on Monday.
NO to Nebraska expanded gambling issues
And last, but certainly not least, President Bush is far and away the best candidate in terms of making life better for American children and their families, in school and beyond.
Be sure to visit my feature blog, http://www.DailySusan.blogspot.com, for a series of stories this week about the expanded gambling measures that are on the Nov. 2 ballot in Nebraska, and the impact that would have on our state.
