My letter to the DFL Screening Committee
Once upon a time there was a school board member who liked to wear silly slippers when he read his favorite books. They called him...

Thank you very much for your invitation to screen with the DFL next week. As a candidate for the School Board Iím officially running as a non-partisan candidate. It is, of course, no secret that I have been an active Republican since arriving in Duluth a quarter century ago and not much of a secret that I have been a pain in the neck for the same party in recent years.
I have covertly and overtly supported many Democrats in the past and will no doubt continue to be a "switch hitter." Nonetheless, I feel an obligation to my party not to actively pursue a DFL endorsement. Consequently, I will not make an appearance at your screening committee but I would welcome questions afterwards from anyone at the meeting. My phone number is in the book.
All of us have a tremendous interest in making the Duluth public schools the best they can possibly be. You can rest assured that I am determined to continue working to this end.
