Vote for Julian Cordle

You should vote Julian Cordle onto the District 9 School Board. Here is why:

Julian can boil complex problems down to manageable chunks. I’ve enjoyed a front row seat to the “Julian Cordle Problem Dissection Show”; it is a marvel to behold.

Julian understands when to use technology as a tool. Julian seeks the most effective method, which may or may or may not require a the latest, greatest widget.

Julian listens. Because he listens, he is often the person in the room with the strongest grip on the problem at hand, and able advocate a path forward that people can agree on.

Julian believes in service. He is running for School Board because he cares about kids. He will be a tireless advocate for the kids of District 9.

Julian is one of the most honest and decent humans I’ve ever met.

Art of the schlemiel

Those who think government should be run like a business and believe that money trumps morality assume their emperor in the White House is a master class dealmaker.

Guffaw, really? Someone whose simple-minded idea of accomplishment is just to negate someone else’s ideas and accomplishments? Someone whose concept of statesmanship in Helsinki was to wet himself as his Russian chum and the world watched? Someone whose stellar negotiating resulted in getting his clock cleaned by his North Korean chum and then, naturally, boasting to the gullible that he alone abated any nuclear threats? Someone whose perception of foreign policy is to replace intelligent, qualified personnel with petty gangster types that intimidate and bully our friends and partners across the globe? Someone who, as a proven chronic liar, proudly flaunts his considerable lack of character, dignity, empathy, conscience and overall intelligence?

Americans rightfully reject this dishonorable buffoon while his supporters applaud these traits and drop them into that bucket of amazing family values we’ve collectively scratched our heads about for years. Their emperor may indeed have new, clothes but they are unacceptably filthy and need to be replaced.

Will lawmakers’ pay be docked?

Can someone explain to me why Republican legislators prefer corporate profits over children’s education? And why, instead of debating the bill and offering a reasoned rationale for that preference, they took the childish way out and played hooky?

Will their pay get docked for their absence, as other employees would be docked for walking out on their jobs?
