  1. Regardless of the ontenrion it’s a conflict of interest. I am sure that her organizational skills would benefit any number of local causes.

  2. Volunteers to take an active role in keeping parents informed and involved. Accepts a non-paid leadership role that will involve record keeping and communication with a large number of people. I don’t know what qualities you want in a school board member, but this would be a refreshing change.

  3. You can disagree if you like but consider if you are acting ethically you would have to recuse yourself from every vote involving policy affecting parents if the advisory panel came out for or against. The mere appearance of a conflict of interest is one of the keys in determining the need for recusal. There are other examples.

  4. Heartily disagree with Anon7. Being an involved parent who serves as a volunteer, giving time and showing leadership, is a show of dedication to the school system. Anyone with a clean record and a vested interest in our schools should be encouraged to serve. I applaud the candidate’s willingness to give the time and effort. It is not a paid position.
