None of the three candidates to date have substantively answered any questions that were important to me.
I’m voting for Robert Cianciulli because he really authentically cares about kids, has the ability to see systems from their perspective and was open-minded about resident concerns about SSARS and voted against its implementation.
I’m voting for Angela Penna because she has been very involved in the schools, has a strong awareness of children who present with different needs which will be an asset if the BOE continues to allow security theater in the schools without parental oversight or involvement.
I’m voting for Dr. Du because…..well...why the hell not? The guy has a Ph.D. and has not yet recommended that the district implement any terrible programs without parental oversight. At this point, I consider this an epic achievement. Maybe he’ll actually ask questions about the SRO program if he’s elected. Who knows?
