October 25th school board forum and state house district 21 debate IUSB Elkhart campus 6-9pm

19 Oct

 

Elkhart Community School Board Candidate Forum

  The Elkhart School system will be facing many issues this year with the consolidation. New administrators will need mentoring as pathways are developed. Our public education system in Elkhart is important- it is the one place where the citizens have a say about how their tax dollars are being spent.  The voucher system allows other educational institutions to use tax dollars without an elected school board that is responsible to the public.

All of the Elkhart School board candidates will attend the Forum at the IUSB ELkhart Center on October 25th .There will be introduction time, then questions on school board issues from the League  and some questions from the audience. Candidates for school board District B :Glenn Duncan and Rocky Enfield Jr. Candidates for ELkhart At Large school board candidates are: Babette Boling, Kellie Mullins, Troy Scott, Jeri Stahr, Jill Szyarto, and AnneVonDerVellen.  Please come and meet the candidates and make an informed vote. School board forum 6-7:30 pm.   State district 21 debate 7:30-9pm

Among the many who will be attending: Linda Rogers (uncontested state Senate D11), Jeff Siegel (uncontested candidate for county sheriff), and The Elkhart Community School board candidates. We are pleased to introduce candidates from all parties in these contested races: State District 21 -Tim Wesco (R), Carl Rust (D), Ethan Legg (L),City council D2-Randy Yohn (R), Eric Harris (D), Concord T Assessor- Christopher Dickinson (R), Veronica Donaldson (D), and Concord T Trustee- Jim Weeber (R), Jeremy Everett (D).  This is your opportunity to ask questions about your concerns or issues that are important to you.
