communities can do better

Joe, sounds like Nagel's quote, no?

But seriously, what a condescending statement, as if only Nagel and her friends run for office to "do something" and everyone else is just trying to "be somebody".

Regardless, open, free elections among citizens and the free speech and debate that elections generate is at the core of what our society purports to strive for.

I say purport, because many people, especially in our area are actually against free speech and work very hard, even quite unethically to silence people that don't share the same perspective with them.

Our communities can do better than accept this culture.

Thank you to Lorne for posting the BSD board opportunity.

Mr. Land, don't forget that Senator Jerry Hill just publicly "called out" the SMUHSD board for being arrogant, and not listening to the public that they serve.
