Trio above politics

The decisions we make for Altoona Area School Board will be with us for the next several years.

We must really examine where we are now with the current board and see if we want a new direction or more of the same, expensive witch hunts that produced nothing or more schools to close.

There are three individuals that are in this race that are not party players.

The fact that one small faction of our local electorate has exercised influence on this board should scare all of us.

Negative votes hurt, and we have seen more of them in the last two years than I can ever recall in my 62 years.

The three candidates that will put children first are Elizabeth Chapman, John Klingeman and John Donley.

When you vote, please consider them for the good of everyone in our school district.
