Letter to the Editor

School Board candidate says "Students before politics in Edgefield County"

web posted August 19, 2010

Dear Editor:
To the people of Edgefield County I originally wrote this to my Facebook group Michael Crim for Edgefield County School Board. I thought I would now share it with the rest of the public

A new school year has begun, and very soon the school board elections will be held.  Most of the members of my group are not residents of District #2; however, most of you are residents of our great county. 

I need all of you who truly support my candidacy, both in District #2 and elsewhere in the county, to help me now by discussing the election with others you may know.  Talk to your neighbors and families and, of course, people you know who will have the opportunity to vote for me. 

I have very limited resources, and I do not plan to spend a small fortune on my campaign.  Instead, I plan on getting out and talking to the residents of District #2.  Being visible will be my primary strategy.  I will tell others my philosophy concerning the role of the school board and also the role of public education.  I ask you to talk to your co-workers and neighbors starting now.

Many educators have expressed an interest in these critical elections, and most feel they have a major stake in the outcomes.  We all have a chance to make a major difference in the composition of our school board, but we must be vocal and not afraid to discuss the importance of this election with our co-workers. 

District # 1 and District # 5 are also on the November ballot.  To say the least, those two ballots have some fine candidates on them.  Because of these candidates, the philosophy of education that the current board has adopted could be changed.  If you support that change, please be vocal concerning those candidates as well. 

Obviously, we need changes in this county, and those changes will occur only if we all work to make it happen.

Please support my philosophy: Students before politics in Edgefield County.

Michael Crim
Candidate for Edgefield County School Board District #2
