- Just because we don't have a transparent dictatorship or a leader who assassinates his own citizens, doesn't mean we aren't in a whole mess of trouble or that we don't have an oligarchy that doesn't respond to the needs of the overwhelming majority of the electorate. I say NO to the conservative Tea Party fringe that wants to eliminate the middle class!
- I totally support your reccomendation for Dave "Watchdog" Miner for school board district 2. Mr. Miner has been very involved in the school board for over 12 years as he has attended almost every meeting since his children were in school. He has a great understanding of the challenges facing the school board, the legal ramifications of some of the very questionable decisions of the recent school board and has a true passion for students to recieve the quality education they are not getting with the current "Teach to the Test" rote learning the students and teachers are being forced to endure under the current administration.Mr. Miner has a true passion for education, perhaps as a result of his undergraduate education at Amherst College- one of the oldest and most prestigious liberal arts college in the nation that instilled and challenged him to make learning a joy not a chore.He would strive to bring that passion for quality education for both the teachers and students of Manatee County.
