Here in the Smith house, we have a baseball game and then we will be heading out to knock on doors and learn more about the issues facing members of our community. I have had several conversations with many of you already that have highlighted some of the many strengths of our schools and also some concerns as well that will need to be explored further as the campaign continues.
The May 16th municipal primary is right around the corner. It is the most important date in school board elections as most candidates appear on both ballots. I am looking for several volunteers who would be willing to donate some of their time at the polls that day. If you would be willing to greet your neighbors and hand out some information about my candidacy, I would be extremely grateful!
If you are willing to volunteer your time that day (especially the morning and late afternoon/evening) or if you'd like more information about what volunteering at the polls, please complete the volunteer form on my Get Involved page. You do not need to be a resident of a voting precinct to work at its polling place, but I will do my best to make sure you are close to home if you prefer.
Lastly, I have made it a point to share much of my thoughts facing our district on my Ideas and Issues section. However, if there is a topic related to East Penn, our schools, or education in general that you'd like to hear me discuss in more detail (or maybe one that I haven't touched on yet), please feel free to comment on this post, or on Facebook with your questions and concerns. I will use the most common thoughts and opinions from the community to spur some reflection and build them into a blog post at a later date.
I look forward to hearing from you!
