It’s voting day

I have four contested races on my sample ballot:

State Superintendent of Public Instruction
ROSE FERNANDEZ (Non-Partisan)
TONY EVERS (Non-Partisan)

JUSTICE OF THE SUPREME COURT – 2009-2019
RANDY R KOSCHNICK (Non-Partisan)
SHIRLEY S ABRAHAMSON (Non-Partisan)

School District Unified Area IV Seat
MOORE, DONALD J (Non-Partisan)
LAMBERT, JEAN (Non-Partisan)

School District Unified At-Large – Elmbrook
WARTMAN, MEG T (Non-Partisan)
WICKENS, CHARLES D (Non-Partisan)

The winners will be Evers, Abrahamson, Lambert and Wartman. The only one I’ll be excited about is Jean Lambert.

Months ago I declared “wonderful news” that a great candidate had come forward in the Area IV race. Jean Lambert had e-mailed that morning saying she was jumping in. I know Jean from some city work I’d done. I really like her style. She’s very professional and very bright with loads of common sense. We couldn’t ask for more, Elmbrook.

Will I agree with every move she makes? Probably not. But I’m confident she’ll possess the strongest character on that seven person board. Elmbrook’s school board can use a little of that character in these days of swaying with the administrative wind.

So hop to it! Turnout is expected to be light. You vote will matter now more than ever.

Comments

  1. Well, it looks like I called all four races. Can’t say I voted for them all, though…

  2. Kathryn says:

    Congratulations to all four school board candidates for a race well run! And special thanks to Jean Lambert and Meg Wartman who now have to do the hard work.

  3. The Lorax says:

    Kathryn, don’t forget the editors at the area media establishments who work double hard to patch up Ms. Wartman’s non-sequiter accounts of what she said.

  4. I heard what she said. I was in the room. It was entirely consistant with her stated position on 4k and her responsibility to a fellow board member.

    The press made kind of a hash of it, but these things happen.

  5. If only I could spell.

  6. Boy, I missed that entirely until you mentioned it!

    I have really had trouble post-computer years now that I rely so heavily upon spell check. It used to be one of my strengths, but not anymore.
