Given Jason’s recent post it appears School Board races may heat up against this year. If this is true then we need to get moving! Every year I send out a list of questions to Red Clay school board candidates and post their answers. Here’s my problem: Every school district has different concerns and I while I’m familiar with the challenges facing Red Clay, I have no idea what the Appo, Capital, Christina, Seaford, etc. District residents are looking for in a school board candidate.
So… I need a few volunteers to contact candidates in their district and report back. I’m also trying to figure out the best way to do this. Can this even be done? Actually, I’d really like to find a way where I’m not sending out tons of emails – because a quick look at the number of candidates running is quite daunting, and, contrary to popular belief, I don’t get paid for this!
Also, could Kent and Sussex Department of Elections get their flippin’ act together? Sussex gives linkless emails (that’s a lot of cut and pasting) while Kent doesn’t give email addresses at all, only phone numbers. New Castle County links to the candidates email, where provided. Thank you, NCC! Seriously, why wouldn’t Delaware’s election formats be the same?
