From Joe Voskuhl:
As the school year begins, the fiscal crisis enters its fifth year. We have been on the wrong track and have been on this track for sometime now. Teachers continue to leave Harford County for other school systems. These teachers are some of our best. We need to address the fiscal crisis now. We can no longer delay. We need to make the school system more efficient by addressing flat enrollment and the underutilization of schools. The Board of Education needs to work with the County Government to coordinate the budget process. The Board can no longer simply accept the superintendent’s budget recommendations. Board members must take a more active role in the decision making process. For too long the school Board has simply demanded funding from the County Government, without any regard for the fiscal realities we all face.
I am prepared to work for these changes we so desperately need. I am not running for the School Board as a stepping stone to other elected offices. If elected, I will serve only one term of four years. My opponent has been on the Board for eight years and wants to serve four more. We do not need career politicans and we do not need career School Board members. If you cannot make a difference in four years, you are not the right person for the job. If you think the status quo is just fine and that taxpayers, students, and teachers are being well served, then by all means vote for my opponent. However, if you think we deserve better and its time for a change, vote for me.
School Board Candidate, District C
