Candidates for Ashland City School District Board of Education be decided on Nov. 2. Six candidates are running for three seats. The school board makes pivotal decisions about school policies. It's crucial for residents to discuss their questions and share their priorities. Elections should be about voters, not candidates.
Ashland Source is launching "Talk the Vote" election listening events. On Thursday, Oct. 14 from 6 to 7 p.m. at Uniontown Brewing Company, you are invited to join us and share your questions and concerns about the future of the school district through a guided discussion that focuses primarily on one question:
"What do you want to hear candidates talk about as they campaign for your vote?"
Ashland Source Reporter Dillon Carr will facilitate the discussion.
The sessions will be limited to an hour. These are designed to be smaller, more intimate gatherings. Residents/voters should feel comfortable asking questions and sharing what they believe should be priorities in the next few years.
Candidates are also welcome to attend any or all sessions -- but only as an observer. The most important participants are the constituents and fellow citizens -- so this is a campaign-free zone.
The ideas gathered will influence future reporting projects.
