For as angry as Candy made us I find it hard to believe she got 68% of the vote. Maybe it was SoHo pity that got her through the election. Guess you South Tampa teachers forgot about her comments during the 6 out of 7 throating we took.

Candy Olson - $25,007 vs. Frank Hernandez - $4,625

Life and the public finally caught up with Jennifer. Now the race is between:

Stacey White - $12,498.06 vs. Richard Bartels - $3,259.06

White spent 4 times the money for only 37 percent of the vote. 7% more than Bartels. I really like Bartels since Faliero threw her support on White all the while ole Stacey was accusing Bartels of being an insider? Huh? Her support of White leads me to endorse BARTELS. Bartels did nothing to prevent his teachers from speaking out against the 6 out of 7 throating. I respect that.

April Griffin - $44,447.65 vs. Sally Harris - $13,773.35 vs. Terry Kemple - $34,624.97 is a tough one. April met with teachers and listened to them during the 6 of 7 throating. She seems to have lost her fire and fallen under Elia's spell. Sally spent more than she took in and that exposes a flaw in my opinion. This leads me to root for Terry Kemble.

For the intrepid among you click down through the links and read who contributed to who - especially if you want to see who the insiders may be. Keep in mind what a starting teacher makes when you see these totals.

So come on folks - get out there in November!
Encourage your neighbors.

If you need motivation just read the past posts.

I worked for Bartels. He's compassionate but no-nonsense guy.

If Falerio really wanted the best for the district she would have endorsed someone with his experience and reputation.

She reeks of sour grapes!

I believe that Falerio endorsed the pharmacist to protect the skeletons.

She probably knows how Bartels is and she's concerned that he'll "open closets" and "look under rocks".

Anyone who hasn't worked in the district won't even know those closets and rocks exist!

Think about that little morsel.

I also worked for Bartels. He is first class all the way. As my principle he encouraged us to speak our minds at the school board meetings, hence why Falerio is not a big fan of him. He is straight forward and tells it like it is. When downtown called his office to tell him to block his teachers from protesting the school board he told them to kiss off!I have to utmost respect for him both as a co worker and a friend.

Bartels gets my vote, too. He always expected the best from his teachers and was always fair. His knowledge of the way downtown works will be an advantage for the students and teachers. Imagine: he will be Elia's boss ! Love it!

I'm sure Bartels would have picked up on the calendar fiasco.

THAT's why the District is hoping for the druggist.

ReElect no one.
