Terence McAteer: Recommendations for the Nevada County Board of Education

Voters are provided a clear choice for four open seats on the Nevada County Board of Education. There is an attempt by a fringe, single interest group to control the Board. They do not have the best interest of all students and teachers in this county. Therefore, voters need to take this election with heightened awareness.

Susan Clarabut

Louise Johnson

Timothy May

I urge you to vote for these candidates and inform your friends of this slate of qualified individuals who, at their core, have the best interest of our schools.
