Screening and Recommendation team has recommended the following five
*Jeff Long* - our incumbent, *Jim Pearson* - a 40 year HVS veteran and
former HVEA president, *Denise Pistana*, *Julie Conn* and *Tom Wiseman*.
There are four open seats, with Jeff Long as the incumbent who our EA
recommended 5 years ago. He also was instrumental in moving the school
board to vote in favor of the 80/20 insurance rates for the 16/17 year.
While we have five candidates running for four seats, I know you will make
your own informed decision as to who you will vote for.
Speaking of informed decision making. There will be a League of Women
Voters forum next *Wednesday, Oct. 19th at 6:30 at MHS in the LGI.* I
encourage all of you to attend this informative forum. If you can, it is a
great way to hear from all the candidates. I know some of you have
conferences that night, but if you are available,please attend.
