It looks like David Works and incumbent Judith Bialk (last place) are out of the running for the highly contested Franklin Board of Education. The top vote getter was Janet Evans, also an incumbent. This race will be the most interesting to watch as both Janet Evans and Aimee Schlueter have come out on the side of the Franklin taxpayers and parents. While Don Petre and John Thompson are both endorsed by the teachers unions and from what little they have said are in favor of unlimited spending.
If Evans and Schlueter win the April election, this could very well change the face of the current Board of Education by kicking current President Deb Larson and VP Jeff Taylor out of their respective roles on the board.
One could ask themselves, “Is this why there are rumors that Superintendent Steve Patz is looking for a new job?”
PS – It was nice spending time with both candidates Evans and Schlueter (and Aimee’s husband) while waiting for results. Thanks again to the hospitality of Sandy Wesolowski and her staff also!
CONGRATULATIONS JANET AND AIMEE!
