Perspective: WIS Editorial on voting for new school board members

COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - If you live in Lexington-Richland Five and don't know who's running for the district's school board, you have an excellent opportunity to see and hear the candidates who hope to shape and administer policy for your school district.

On Nov. 4, voters will be asked to elect three new members for the school board. The school improvement council is holding three public forums, and WIS News 10's Judi Gatson helped moderate the first forum Tuesday at Chapin High School. The other two forums are set for Irmo Middle School on Thursday, Oct. 16 at 7pm and Thursday, Oct. 23 at 7pm. Judi is moderating all three forums and you can catch the highlights on WIS News 10.

So don't just sit at home and complain about your school board, get out there, meet the candidates and become an informed voter so you can make a difference.

That's my perspective, what's yours?
