Standardized public education is foundational and essential to preparing all students for life. To ensure that every student receives effective and comprehensive instruction, they need good teachers. Moreover, they rely on a qualified and caring school board.
This Friday, the Democratic Club welcomes three excellent candidates for the Post Falls School Board. They are Bridget Malek, Jake Dawson, and Neil Unrig. Currently, our schools are facing increasing uncertainty and turmoil. That is why we need to elect rational, and disciplined trustees who will not fall prey to the pressures of misinformation and mob intimidation.
Join us this Friday, October 29 to hear their views and ask questions about their qualifications and goals.

If you missed last Friday’s gathering on 10/22, please take the time to watch it. It featured three CDA School Board candidates. Their opponents oppose public education, voted against the levies, and intend to interfere in all aspects of our children’s education. If you a resident of Coeur d’Alene and live in CDA School District 271 Zone 1, 4, or 5, then please vote for candidates who believe in public education. This is no time to sit on the sidelines so please support these competent candidates.
