Adults get a shiny new building while kids are breaking legs

Check out the latest news on my campaign site.  If this doesn't make you mad and get you to vote for CHANGE, then nothing will.  

CLICK HERE to view a short video and read the story.  If you really want to get steamed, click the links at the end of the story and read and watch what THIS school board did to the taxpayers and students in this district.  

The Everett School Board President, Jeff Russell, popped a cork at the President of the Bruin Community Parents for "assigning motive" for what they did.  But, I was always taught that if it looks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, it's probably a duck.  Building a new district office while continuing to let kids slide around and hurt themselves on outdated fields doesn't exactly say, "We put the kids first".  

We can only surmise they aren't interested in providing Everett students with top notch facilities that will attract families to the district.  They seem to think that a nice, new district office building will somehow do that.  I've never heard a single parent choose a school district to buy a house in based on what the district office looked like.  

If you REALLY want to change this and make sure the next time you vote to give the district money that your vote will be respected, then vote Kim Guymon for position 2 and Rod Reynolds for position 1 in November.  Our priorities are in the right place.  We're less interested in impressing the community and more interested in making sure the kids have what they need.
