Anonymous never mentioned any names. Thanks to Susan for letting us know who it is! I am writing in my vote for Tricia. She is best suited person in KP for a BOE position.

Anonymous didn't have to mention names. Read the first posting on here. Anonymous referred to the candidate as "her" and "she". With only one woman running it is very easy to figure out who the conversation is about.

Considering anonymous mentioned "she" and there is only one female candidate it would not be hard to figure out who anonymous was trying to have us "wonder" about. Ironically Diane Nally's husband was a teacher in KP, back when times were tight, budgets went down and our district was on austerity. This is not the first time our district hit hard times. If she was in it for her families own advancement wouldn't she have run during those hard times when she was raising young children on a modest income!

Sally Pruslow Why pick on Ms. Nally? All three people running for the BOE have educators in their immediate families. Mr. Leo's wife taught in KPSD and now I understand has a education consulting business. His sister presently teaches in KPSD, just like Ms Nally's son. Mr. Kelly's wife is also an educator. What difference does it make. Anyone with an ounce of integrity would recuse themselves from voting on an agenda item that involved there family members (a child presently attending KPSD or a staff member) or a business they own. What we should be concerned about as voters is whether they will listen to the community, and try to have a more open approach with agenda items the community is concerned about such as the dist transportation and extension of the supt. contract. Hopefully, they can bring a consensus between the staff and the administration to raise the morale of the KPSD employees. More important issues for voters to be concerned about are increasing costs of running a school district, trying to keep class sizes lower in the primary grades and providing a balanced curriculum including foreign languages, technology, music and the arts. These are some of the things we need to keep in mind NOT what or if they have a hidden agenda.
