This category will provide statements of candidacy from those seeking office in school board, municipal, watershed districts, and soil and water conservation districts.
I, Doug Miranda, am announcing my candidacy for the Cobre Consolidated School Board Position 3. As your representative on the school board I plan on working with the district superintendent and teachers along with parents to make sure that the student always comes first and foremost on Cobre Consolidated School Board agenda.
I plan on working with my fellow board members to tackle the complicated issues our schools are facing today. I will ensure that the school board is proactive in equipping our students with the technology, classroom environment and educational resources that our students need for successes in today's world.
My name is Nancy Stephens, and I am running for Grant County Soil and Water Conservation District Supervisor (Position 3) in the November election.
I grew up in an agricultural community and have always valued connection to the land. My first job was detasseling corn. Sunburned and blistered, I wanted to quit after the first day, but according to my dad, he didn't raise a quitter. The daughter of two public school teachers, I also value education.
I earned a psychology degree from Indiana University. I worked my way through school caring for adults with disabilities and served as chair of our student environmental action coalition. Two memorable projects involved building a giant wire-mesh sphere filled with recyclable materials salvaged from the dumpster and directing a student play (accompanied by a funk band!) based on Dr. Seuss's wonderful book, The Lorax, about the importance of responsible stewardship of our natural environment.
