I would never try to tell you how to vote, but I am often asked how I am going to vote. I've put quite a bit of research and thought into several of the candidates and ballot issues in 2021. It is critical that we elect good people with good principles to our local school boards. These are the conservative candidates in School Districts 3, 11, 20 and 49. Please do everything we can to spread the word.
When it comes to school board elections, there are many people who are personally very nice and well-intentioned. However, I only support candidates that I feel will be champions of free-market reforms in K-12 education. This year, I've also endorsed those candidates who will oppose divisive curriculum like critical race theory. I support school board candidates that will tell every child they CAN succeed no matter who they are - not candidates that weigh students down with an excuse of past racism.
While I do not have recommendations in all school districts, below are the ones on which I feel confident enough to make suggestions. If I haven't made a recommendation in your school district, it is because I don't feel confident enough that there are any real champions of true school choice on the ballot.
I don't choose my elected officials based on my feelings but rather their views on the issues and how they will either advance or inhibit my freedoms and liberties. I hope you use that same criteria - and not personality - to make your determinations. These recommendations are my personal recommendations and do not reflect the position of my employer. Please make sure you vote. If you have any questions about your ballot, please call the El Paso County Clerk and Recorder's office at (719)575-VOTE (8683).
Here are my recommendations:
