Don’t fall for lies and scare tactics: Letter

York Dispatch

The school board is about our children, students, teachers and staff. It’s not about politics and agendas, which is why the school board director race has always been nonpartisan. Republicans and Democrats have always cross-filed to run on both party ballots when running for school board, as it is part of the election process. 

The truth is so important so please do your own research on all of the candidates and do not willingly accept falsehoods, scare tactics, hyperbole and outright lies from candidates. Ask questions. Our children, education, educators and our community are too important and valuable.
