Duluth School Board Campaign 2003
I don't deserve to be reelected based on my campaign. I won't campaign. I will serve if elected but I don't expect to be reelected. I've offered a lot of opinions on the goings on in the school district in my Northland Reader columns over the past two months. In the two weeks leading up the the election there were some newspaper endorsements (I got none) and some comparisons of the candidates. I've again violated the copywrite laws to include them on my web page.
Oh yeah, I lost three weeks ago. Nuff said.
Answers to question from the Duluth News Tribune
Why do I think Central High School should become a Junior High (only if an excess levy fails)
Devastation if the levy fails I told the Trib I don't want to be on the board if the levy fails.
Evidence that student achievement has improved since I've been on the Board (I've stopped copying stories from the Duluth News Tribune for the time being so I don't have a link to this at the moment.)
Over Two years ago I proposed the "ZenithPlan" for two high schools, East and Denfeld. Its still looks good to me. Other Board members have ignored it but they haven't managed to form a majority to pass an alternative plan. That could change after this election.
Now the really important stuff (100% hockey related of course)
