Judge Them By the Company They Keep

I’ll be posting a longer look at the School Board candidates this evening, but this enormous flash ad on the Helena IR’s web page is a fairly clear sign of who you probably don’t want to be voting for.

school board

I think it says quite a bit about Dr. Sticht and Brittnay Renshaw that each keeps associating him or herself with Barbara Rush. Their public profiles and media interviews may suggest moderate, concerned parents, but can the schoolchildren of Helena really afford three Board members voting to end school lunches for poor children, voting to reject federal funds, and imposing their narrow-minded morality on the rest of us?

If you appreciate an independent voice holding Montana politicians accountable and informing voters, and you can throw a few dollars a month our way, we would certainly appreciate it.
