Local elections are important.

I live in a rural red county in this very blue state. I am a Democratic precinct committee leader and I pay attention to who is running for what.

I discovered recently that two of the six candidates running for school board in my community home school their children. Why? They are very right wing anti-maskers. I have known one of them since he was a child.

People who home school their children have no business making decisions for our school district. They do not support our schools. It is clear to me that these two have an axe to grind.

I am spreading the word with phone calls and emails. I will be writing some LTTEs later today.

Pay attention to local elections, everyone!

4. Where in Illinois, if you don't mind saying.

I'm in McHenry county. Local elections can be tricky as it is often difficult to find out much about the candidates' real beliefs.

7. College of DuPage - Board of Trustees

From the Milton Township Democrats website:

COD Board of Trustees
Vote for 2*:
Haroon Atcha www.HaroonAtcha.com
*To insure Haroon is elected, only vote for him. The other two candidates have extremist agendas and if you vote for one it dilutes the vote for Haroon.

They also warned against the two extremists at http://www.DefendOurSchoolsIllinois.com
