The Washtenaw County Democrats and Ann Arbor Democratic Party hosted a forum for candidates for the Chelsea, Lincoln, and Saline school boards on Monday, August 8, from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm via Zoom.

School board members have a say in virtually every aspect of school district functioning. They choose superintendents. They set budgets. They decide whether new schools need to be built and old schools updated. They make or influence policy on everything from book banning to student privacy to school closures for health reasons.

Lincoln: Stacy Kind, Jason Moore
Moderator: Susan Baskett, Vice Chair, Ann Arbor Dems Programs Committee; Trustee, Ann Arbor School Board

Saline: Lauren Gold, Michael McVey
Chelsea: Glenn Fox, Kate Henson
Moderator: Jennifer Fairfield, Chair, Western Washtenaw Democratic Club

Due to a meeting of the Dexter School Board at the same time as this forum, Daniel Alabre was unable to attend.  We apologize for the scheduling conflict, which was our mistake.
