    I think all of the candidates are wonderful. The finest must be selected to honor the memory of Leslee King. She was a great American who sacrificed her life in service to her country. I especially like Samuel Yan’s suggestion that LCPS partner with local eateries to improve the nutritional intake of students. It’s also marvelous that an African-American woman has applied. Good luck candidates. May the best one be selected.

    Ask each one of these potential SB members to explain the difference between “Equity” and “Equality.”
    And them ask them which one has a place in public policy, and why.

    Andrew Hoyler ran for that exact seat in the last election. While he did not win he did actually receive thousands of votes from actual Broad Run voters and should be at the top of the list as a replacement until the next election.

    It’s encouraging to see so many applicants, the board desperately needs someone new and young to bring fresh ideas to the board.

    The school board needs someone with a BACKBONE to manage the Superintendent, obey state statutes such as 22.1-79, steward allocated dollars from the community as precious not play money and do NO HARM to any student regardless of partisan preferences.
