School Board Election; Kingsley Festival

As the November elections approach, one of the most important races is that for DeKalb County School Board, District 1. It is important because it not only concerns the education of our children, but how our school taxes dollars are spent as well as our property values.

Last week there was a candidate forum at Dunwoody City Hall which, I'm told, only a dozen or so people attended (video available on John Heneghan's website). There is another forum tomorrow, Thursday, October 7, from 6:30-9:00 p.m. at the DeKalb Medical Center, Main Campus, in the Hospital Theater Auditorium on the ground floor (click here for more information).

I will not be able to attend tomorrow night's forum, however I plan to go to the Dunwoody Homeowners Association's candidate forum at 7 pm, Tuesday, October 26 at Dunwoody United Methodist's Fellowship Hall. It will not only feature the three candidates for the school board post, but the two candidates running for our Dunwoody seat in the Georgia Senate and Georgia House. All the candidates for these positions have given written notice that they will be in attendance.
By the way, one of the best websites to keep up with Dunwoody schools is DeKalb School Daze.
