  1. This woman is a radical left-wing extremist. She wants total control over YOUR kids to jam her social engineering indoctrination into each public education students veins. She is scary! Although she has dropped out, the teachers union has their candidates. Reject them and vote for the BMW team. They are the hope of our school system.

    • Marvin you are the scary one. You are supporting a group of right wing extremists that make Speert look middle of the road. At least her organization actually helps kids. If BMW had been on the BOE during COVID we would have had a lot of sick kids because no one would have been using masks.

      • Masks are nothing but a show for people who are scared. The left is ruining this country so fast and you must be blind if you don’t see that.

        • Weird how Asian countries have always masked up when there are outbreaks of any virus and it helps reduce spread. But, you, Joe nobody with no experience in epidemiology or public health, know more. This is where American exceptionalism and slowly defunded school systems get us.

  2. Kelli, masks are nothing but a show to help these scared people feel better. Stop living in fear and lose the masks. Democrats are ruining this country so fast and it’s terrifying.
