On Nov. 5, 2017 NPR’s Ann Marie Awad reported “When Election Day Comes And There’s Only One Candidate On The Ballot” about the lack of contested elections at the local level. Colorado school boards do not have enough members because they are unpaid volunteer positions. These roles are important to our children and country’s future. They are also a pipeline to getting experienced professional candidates for state and federal office. If you have the means and temperament, consider running for public office. Democracy is self government. Some things you have to do yourself.
