Dear Friends and Nevada County Residents:
We are your three recent county school superintendents Holly Hermansen, Terry McAteer and Skip Houser, representing 27 years of combined experience in running the county school superintendent’s office. This year’s county school board election is critical and worthy of your attention. Could we ask for 2 minutes of your time?
We endorse the slate of JULIE BAKER, SUSAN CLARABUT, LOUISE JOHNSON, TIMOTHY MAY and urge you to vote for them.
Let us get straight to the point: There is a group of three people who are running on the platform of “Taking Back our Schools”. They have been attending school district and county board meetings and disrupting the meetings. They indicate that they want to dictate policy and curriculum to our local schools that is in opposition to the recommendations of our local school board members, teachers and administrators. It is clear they lack an understanding of the role of a county board of education. They are trying to take over the Nevada County Board of Education. As supporters of the Nevada County school system, we cannot let that happen.
We support the slate of JULIE BAKER, SUSAN CLARABUT, LOUISE JOHNSON, TIMOTHY MAY and urge you to vote for them.
This slate understands the role of the Nevada County Board of Education and will bring experience, integrity and reason to the critical decisions that need to be made on behalf of our students and teachers.
It is NOT the role of the county schools office to dictate textbook decisions, ban books, disrespect science in the classroom, or push religion.
Help retain sanity on our county school board, VOTE BAKER-CLARABUT-JOHNSON-MAY.
Thank you, we need you,
Holly Hermansen, Terry McAteer and Skip Houser
Former Superintendents of Schools
