The election for school board is not about who you wave to at church on Sunday or sit next to at soccer practice. I have no doubt that the current school board members are very nice people with great families and concern for the schools. Volunteering time for worthy causes doesn’t make a candidate qualified to handle the large budget numbers of the Zionsville School District. We need new blood on the school board with strong business acumen and financial experience. Thanks to those who have served but it is time for financial professionals to fix our financial mess so we may protect the future of our students. The students can keep their popularity contests, I will be voting for common sense on election day.
