Endorsement editorial: Chilmonik for Lee school board

Photo with no caption

Bob Chilmonik and incumbent Jeanne Dozier in the August primary election fought to a runoff.

Our support remains with Chilmonik.

His emphasis on public access and input would bode well for the Lee County School Board on an issue in today’s headlines — school bus service to gated communities.

His platform picks up precisely where he left off as the public’s watchdog during two terms from 2002-2010 — stopping wasteful spending, holding the line on taxes and aiming for better academic achievement, starting with reading.

Chilmonik’s business background with Heinz and Nabisco and experience as a computer teacher in the schools and at Edison State College bode well too.

Who can vote? All 376,000 voters in Lee County.
