Out-of-state green? Ask why!
We have been fielding inquiries about today's Star Tribune article about out-of-state funding for school board candidates, asking what this means for voters. If you are making decisions on candidates, the multitude of mailers stuffing your mailbox gets confusing. Our advice: find out who is paying for the mailers and commercials and what they stand for. Then decide if you align with those funders’ beliefs. The article speaks to the significance of transparency. If you cannot easily access info about the funders, consider whether this aligns with your values as well. Keep in mind that local decisions influenced by out-of-state money is not grassroots.
Great schools begin at the ballot box
