I suggest voters in the coming GPPSS school board election press for candidates on two main issues: their stance on the current employee union agreements and their position on a tax increase. The two are inextricably linked.
The partnership of Margaret Weertz, Jake Howlett, and Brian Summerfield was further cemented this week when each announced they had been endorsed by the Grosse Pointe Education Association (GPEA), which is the local teachers union.
The Grosse Pointe Public Schools Board of Education enters the zany election period which has been thankfully reduced to just even years. Even in this very early stage, the melodrama has begun.
