Jason Fischer puts the partisan in non-partisan (rough draft)
School board races are supposed to be non-partisan because our children are more important than political parties. I know people who I don’t imagine I could agree with that the say was blue and them vice versa with me but we come together when the subject of our schools and children come up.
At the end of the day I could care less about what little letter is next to someone’s name, put Obama in the search box and see what I think about him, its ideas and if you are going to be there for our kids, teachers and schools that I find important. Mr. Fischer fails on both accounts.
Unfortunately Jason Fischer isn’t that type of candidate. He dropped conservative and Jeb Bush as often as he could in channel 12’s education debate. He reveled in the fact that he was to the right of Steve Wise and John Thrasher. At the same time I have no idea what John Heymann, Fischer’s opponent, political persuasion is. Talking about the issues not letting people know what the little letter next to his name was more important to him.
You get the impression that Mr. Fischer could care less about our schools and children and just envisions the school board as a stepping-stone to some other office because this is not his first foray into politics as he ran for the soil and water commission a few years back.
