JCPS School Board Candidates’ Forum

The 15th District PTA is hosting a School Board Candidates’ Forum on Wednesday, October 26, 2016. Since duPont Manual High School is a magnet, Manual has students from all seven JCPS districts. Three districts will be having elections and the results may impact Manual High School. Please consider attending the forum and on election day supporting the candidate who shares your ideals. The Forum will be held at VanHoose Education Center located at 3332 Newburg Road in Stewart Auditorium. The districts electing representation are Districts 2, 4, and 7.

The timeline at the forum is as follows:

District 4 is up from 5:30-6:15pm
District 2 is up from 6:30-7:15pm
District 7 is up from 7:30-8:15pm

The candidates running are:

District 4- Ben Gies and Keisha Allen

District 2- David Jones, James Fletcher and Chris Kolb

District 7- Chris Brady, James Sexton, S. Scott Majors, and Fritz Hollenbach

The purpose of this forum is to give candidates for School Board of Education an opportunity to address a wide range of issues that affect our school district. Each candidate will be asked the same question and be given equal time to respond. In addition, the attendees can submit questions to be asked equally to all candidates. No partisan attire, literature or signs allowed in the auditorium.

The news media will be invited to cover the event. The moderator for the forum will be Toni Konz, WDRB News. More information is available on Facebook.
