Get Out And Vote!
No, I’m not talking about the Presidential Race.
Girlie Girl’s school is currently holding elections for a Parent Representative on the School Community Council. There are only 2 people running for this position and I have no clue who either of them are. So how do I cast my vote?
Parent #1 is the current Parent Representative and is seeking a re-election. She’s also active on the Middle & High School Community Councils in our district and strives to make a positive impact on our children’s education.
Parent #2 is a SAHM who’s concerned about student issues. She’s never served on any community councils before but would like the opportunity to help make the school a better place for everyone.
Since these two women are very different in experience, I guess it depends on if I’m happy with the way things are or if I’m looking for a new face and fresh ideas. Well, since Girlie Girl has only been attending the school for less than a year, I don’t think I can say one way or another.
Now that I think about it, I actually have a 3rd option – I could just not vote.
Right now I’m leaning toward Parent #2. I figure that if Parent #1 doesn’t win, she’ll still be involved in the community in one way or another. And even though Parent #2 doesn’t have any experience, she has to start somewhere, right? I give her credit for even attempting to get involved.
So who would you vote for? The Incumbent or The Underdog?
