Crowded field running for Franklin School Board

From the City Clerk’s Office regarding February 16, 2021 primary:

Below are the names and ballot placement order for the candidates of the Franklin School Board.

Maqsood Khan

Ann Sepersky

Shuchi Wadhwa

Jeffrey P. Hall

Angela Christie

Claude W. Lewis

Angela Bier

Vote for not more than 3.  Three seats are open, which means the six candidates with the most votes will proceed to the April 6 Spring Election ballot.

MY OBSERVATIONS: While I would prefer the incumbents be knocked out and we get a newer board I realize that might not be possible. The two incumbents are Claude Lewis and Ann Sepersky.

Lewis had a seat, then gave it up, then his son got on the board, then he left and Claude Lewis got back on. So he has some experience.

Sepersky wasn’t elected to the board. She was appointed in October. So she has a whopping three months  tenure. She promotes herself with two claims to fame:

1) She helped get a change in district policy on classroom sizes.

2) She attended a lot of board meetings before being appointed.

Honestly, that doesn’t cut it for me.

Larry Gamble, the current board president, is not running. He didn’t make a very good case for himself during the Franklin High School football debacle.

Candidate Angela Christie has come bursting out of the gate with the earliest efforts to make an impression.

I await to hear from the other candidates. I don’t have high expectations.

My message to those running.
