Jeff Brandes is the worst man for the job. His votes make life harder for women, children and working people. He is not representing the middle class or the poor, only the top 1% and corporations. Anyone but Brandes. And by the way, Jim Jackson is an excellent choice for school board. He wants to get disruptive kids out of the classroom so teachers can teach and other students can learn. He wants to have more types of education available such as vocational, technical and business coursework. This makes a lot of sense in today's economy especially.
