Six for three

By Tuesday’s deadline for entering the new Charlottesville School Board election, six candidates had emerged to vie for the three open seats.

Sue Lewis, a retired financial advisor, who has been applying for a seat on the board for the last 20 years; Newcomer Charlie Kollmansperger, an ex-teacher, entrepreneur, and strong critic of ex-supe Scottie Griffin. (who famously told the board, “I resent being labeled a racist because me and my colleagues oppose cuts to P.E. and guidance.”); current board member, Ned Michie; former teacher, Vance High; director of UVA’s Upward Bound Program, Leah Puryear; and Albemarle transportation planner, and student tutor, (and former jury foreman in the Alston murder trial) Juandiego Wade.

I'm glad that there is an elected school board.

Ha Ha! Somebody sure messed up the red font above! It had me thinking for a second or two that Scottie Griffin was running for the school board.

My initial reaction was.... is this a good thing or a bad thing? /Steve
