No, not Vote Dammit! which brings to mind Willamette Week and its idiotic endorsements.
But anyway, if you're like me, you wait til the last minute to vote and then walk your ballot over to a local library. And I know many of you HAVEN'T yet cast your ballots. So this is a last minute reminder.
If you live in Beaverton, you must vote for Kris Alman for school board. I wish Kris lived here in Portland, more specifically, I wished she lived in Trudy Sargent's Zone 6 somewhere up on Mount Tabor. As it stands, write in the name of Moss Drake as a replacement for Trudy.
Also vote for Scott Bailey in Zone 5. He seems to know a hell of a lot more about school district politics, and what needs to be done to improve them, than his opponent, Pam Knowles.
If you truly want change on the board, don't vote for Martin Gonzales in Zone 4. Either of his opponents --Rita Moore or Steve Buel-- would likely argue effectively for much needed changes in district policy. (If you don't want a split vote in the zone containing many of the district's poorest schools, then vote Rita. She appears to be running the more vigorous and visible campaign.)
Less than seven hours til the drop-off boxes close. So get cracking!
