We need open minds
In the Oct. 10 edition of the paper, the article on the six Douglas County School Board candidates was quite revealing. On the topic of potentially arming teachers and/or staff who are willing and properly trained, the difference between the candidates is eye opening. The candidates who refer to themselves as “a team” (Meek, Hanson, and Ray) are not even open to any discussion, or consideration of the issue. The three other candidates (Jones, Thompson, and Nelson) are open to considering all security options by listening to staff, experts, the community and law enforcement.
My experience with committees, boards, study groups, etc., is they are most effective when the members are open minded, and consider input from various sources before making any decision or putting forth any recommendation. It doesn’t sound to me like “the team” has any interest in doing this. “Teams” don’t make good boards; open-minded people do. I know where my vote will be going.
