I was disappointed to see that half the candidates did not show up at the McKenzie School Board Forum on April 28th. This was a great opportunity for the candidates to help us become informed voters in what is often an uncontested election.
What I did see at the Forum were thoughtful and well presented answers to relevant questions, and a very polite and supportive audience as befits our small community.
Voter pamphlet statements are intentionally vague; each of the missing candidates promised transparency and yet none pro-vided even a written response for the Forum. I wanted to understand the reasoning for a not so thinly veiled attempt to replace a majority of the Board, but was still left with the question: Why?
