May Elections are best for Michigan schools?


The very first comment I made to a district official after being elected was, "Boy, I'm glad we don't have to do that in May anymore."

The response was, "Well Mike, May elections are really critical for the district."

I thought that perhaps that was an administrator's view, but surely other elected school board members wouldn't think that way. Boy, was I naive!

I wrote this article just before our board voted 5-2 to support May elections:
