Bring balance to school board

Thousand Oaks Acorn
September 20, 2012 

I will vote for Tony Dolz for school board because I think the board is politically biased.

According to Julia Brownley’s website, Nancy Pelosi and both school board incumbents running for reelection, Peggy Buckles and Betsy Connolly, have endorsed the liberal Democrat for Congress.

Thank you, Tony Dolz, for caring about the children and curriculum in our local schools. “The Kite Runner” should not be reading material for the public school system.

It is the parents’ responsibility to give their children a moral compass by which to run their lives. How can they turn over this most important life lesson to strangers?

Mr. Dolz—you have my vote because you understand how precious our children are and how quickly their young years go.

All through school they should learn …
