From the Concerned Taxpayers Group PAC of Livingston County
TAXPAYERS GROUP SELECTS BRIGHTON SCHOOL CANDIDATES
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.
