    Darrell, with your artificial intelligence, you can't come to the conclusion that even democrats are entitled to an opinion of their own, even if it disagrees with you and Mr. Kinderman? Common sense far outweighs intelligence, artificial or not, every time. Good night sir.

    .So set me straight, why is it that all school board candidates except 1, was a democrat?
    This blog is about the school district and who is running for the board... one might think you are the obstructionist in trying to change the subject to a silly argument without substance, not related in any way to the topic at hand.
    But a side comment about the war, you are incredibly wrong and ignorant as to the war.... 9/11 happened, and Kerry, Bush, Clinton and many other leaders voted to fund the war and got us into it. I know you think Bush lied.... then so did 80 % of the democrats who stated the same thing Bush said... what a stupid argument the left makes.

    Mr. Baumbach, you'd rather they be objectionists, the republicans that led the US into a war in the wrong country and nearly caused another great depression? Ramble on, sir.

    Josh, I agree with you very much that they should be non-partisan, but it is anything but.
    The democrats aggressively go after all positions that people in power can influence thinking and outcomes of their party principles. What better way to control children’s perception of which party favors the best interest of the students, than by controlling the school boards across the nation. When I went to the Lodi Library school board candidate’s debate, all but one was either a teacher, a union member, or connected with the institution of education in some way or another. In other words, all were democrats except one.

    Anyone else notice that the candidates the Demo's didn't endorse for the school board were also conveniently/deliberately forgotten about when the forum was held.

    What in the world is a political party doing endorsing candidates for local school board or local city councils? These positions are non-partisan and should remain so. The last thing we need is "party" politics at the local level. And I don't care what party you belong to.
