Over a year ago I posted “Does District 103 Mater?” In it I rhetorically asked if the good people in Lyons Elementary School District 103 cared that the mayor of Lyons had taken over the school district. Well they did care, because two days ago three of Mayor Getty’s hand-picked school board members were voted out – they now have a minority of seats!
I can’t tell you how the news of this election buoyed my spirits. After watching the worst kind of self-serving and anti-individual-rights politics for the past few months, it is refreshing to find out that people still care enough about their schools to vote for those who care about children.
Democracy still works in America for those who stand up for what is right.
