It is mainly due to a controversy surrounding one candidate. However we Hope it will serve to allow the spotlight to fall Over the entire Range of six men seeking three seats on the local school Board. There Are very few differences in philos Mes among the majority of the men. The journal has heard the six each make two presentations to different District groups last week. The journal urges the election of two vastly qualified Young men to the Board. They Are Louis bus me and Forest heis we feel the electorate must choose from Jack Dacey Barry l. Johnson and Harold Washburn for toe other Post. Bus me has been on the Board for but a year replacing Jerry Denges who resigned after Many years and subsequently was named to the Hamilton county Board of education. Bus me has outstanding qualifications. A spa he is a partner with the Well known firm of Alexander Grant amp co. He is interested in financial planning and because of is background he is Well qualified in tvs Field. Although he has lived in toe Community Only 4 2 years he has taken a great Active interest in the school system almost right from the Start. He was treasurer of Wilson elementary Pat for two years and treasurer of the successful 1976 pro Levy Campaign. He also served on the Admi stration citizen a distracting committee last year. In his year or so on the Board bus me has gained valuable knowledge and experience especially in the area of school finances. His experience coupled with his background in finance should be of great assistance to the Board. Heis is an attorney at Law with the firm of Vogel heis and Vogel downtown. Thus he can bring a Good sound Legal background to the Board if elected. He can be a sounding Board on various Legal matters when they appear before the Board. Society is becoming More Complex every Day because of tvs it is Likely that there undoubtedly will be a myriad of Legal problems constantly before the Board. Naturally it would be a conflict of interest and probably unders Reable for he to represent toe Board and he had not advocated such a move. But there is Little question a sound Legal mind like heist would be an asset to the Board. Heis is the Only candidate who is a native of toe area. He knows the Forest Hills schools from various aspects having gone through All grades. In High school he was a student Leader and outstanding athlete. He was one of the City a first winners of the a a that a my boy award a Given to the top student prep football player of the year. We Hope that readers will take to the time to hear All the Board candidates and read their answers to questions posed to All of them by both the journal and the Forest Hills association of educational resources Between now and election Day and then vote their mind even if their heart May feel something else.
