The Tuesday School Board Election.

"You must be the change you wish to see in the world."
Mahatma Gandhi

On May 10th there will be an election in Delmar for a member of the Delmar Board of Education. Each election Delmar demonstrates it's incongruent behavior of talking about how "Delmar is for the kids and we do everything we can to support them" but then no one goes to vote for a key position that will determine the direction of the school board, which in turn influences what your child will learn.

School Board elections have some of the poorest voter turnouts in Delmar.

This year we have two very competent candidates; Joanne Gum has been on the Board for ten years and has demonstrated her abilities - which are exceptional, Farrah Morelli is new but full of enthusiasm and has children in the school system giving her direct feedback on how the school influences the children.

The election is Tuesday May 10th, Polls open 10:00 AM - 8:00 PM at Delmar High School - 200 N. Eighth Street, Delmar, DE.

Our children are not fools they easily recognised the concept that your actions speak louder than your words. If you want to convince people to listen to you, you need to do what you say. If you want to support your child Get out and Vote Delmar Delaware School District residents.

You may vote in this election if you:
•Are a U.S. and Delaware citizen;
•Are 18 years old; and
•Live in the Delmar Delaware School District
Proof of identity will be required - no preregistration is required

May 9, 2011 - 12 Noon - Deadline to vote an absentee ballot in person in the Office of the Department of Elections 119 NORTH RACE STREET - GEORGETOWN DE 19947
PHONE: 302-856-5367

Why is it that the Coconut Cream Pie gets 3 comments, and no comments here for the Election! Get out and VOTE. The education of the children of Delmar is important!

Coconut creme pie transcends all political divides.

Isn't it nice to see two competent candidates running without throwing mud and crap at each other? Maybe it's because the two candidates are women.

Actually, I have only seen one candidate running... other than the post here, which was requested, and requested info from the Star, only one candidate has been campaigning... I think that should tell us something about who really wants this position.
