Please share widely. This points to information on all the candidates for school board in the Caledonia Community Schools district in Michigan for November 8, 2022. If you know of other good sources of info, please let me know and I will add.
I hope that everyone cares about our kids and our schools, and I hope that everyone who cares is paying close attention and planning to vote.
Here are some resources for information on all the candidates. Read up, and vote!
IMPARTIAL NEWS/INFO OUTLETS
https://www.vote411.org/: This is a site, operated by the League of Women Voters, that does not endorse any candidates. It gives all candidates opportunity to provide information, and it posts that information. You enter your address to access information on all candidates on your local ballot.
https://www.mlive.com/politics/: Mlive is in the process of publishing information on all candidates. I believe the Mlive information may be the same info provided by candidates to vote411.org.
The Sun and News (https://www.sunandnews.com/): For the Caledonia Community Schools district, the Sun and News invited all school-board candidates to submit answers to questions. The October 22 edition of the Sun and News published this information.
