Concerned Taxpayers Group PAC endorses Krause and Leach for Brighton School Board

I just got this in my email from Bill Johnston. I was not on the Concerned Taxpayers Group PAC's panel this year due to time constraints, but I still strongly support them and trust their judgment and their process used. I have a good idea of their questions. They are tough, but fair. This is the only contested race in May, and the only race the Concerned Taxpayers Group PAC is getting involved in this May. Rarely do endorsements strongly influence my decisions, but this one and SAFR-PAC (2nd Amendment issues) does more than any other endorsement. They do good work.

From the Concerned Taxpayers Group PAC of Livingston County


The Concerned Taxpayers Group, PAC, has endorsed Jonathan Krause and Cheryl Leach for the Brigthton Area Schools, Board of Education, which is on the May 6th ballot. The other Brighton candidate declined to be interviewed.

The candidates were interviewed by a panel of citizens made up from the Brighton, Howell, Hartland and Pinckney districts. This citizens panel is very concerned about the future of our public schools in Livingston County.

The interviewing process took place in Oceola Township on April 8, 2008 and the results were based on an objective scoring method. The main goal of our endorsement process is to advise the citizens of the Brighton district which candidates will best promote a sound educational enviroment for the students of Brighton. To accomplish this goal, the Brighton district must have board menbers who will truly represent the whole district and not just represent a special interest group.

The future Brighton School Board will have a difficult task with declining enrollment, deficit spending and uncertain state funding. Our two endorsed candidates will be a positive influence on the board if elected.

Leach and Krause deserve our support. We need fiscal responsible individuals at all levels of government.
