Wanna be on the C’ville School Board?

Because I sure don’t.

City Council is now accepting applications for the three positions up for renewal on the board come June 30, James Fernald writes in today’s Daily Progress. Applications are due by May 19.

Two people have already applied for a position. The first is the 45-year-old David Randle, a UVa graduate and marketing consultant, who would like to move away from centralized curricula and management and “get things back from track.” The second — oh, God, I love this — is Kenneth Jackson, past and current City Council candidate, a man with a stabbing problem, but he’s apparently put that behind him now in favor of service on the school board or, possibly, Council, presumably depending on which pans out.

My advice to applicants? Watch your back. The competition is…er…cut-throat.

  1. Cvillenews.com scoop:

    To help close the achievement gap, I intend also to apply for the school board. I am a 1982 graduate of Charlottesville High School. Honor roll. Upward Bound. At-risk student. College graduate. Working class entrepreneur. Articulate and inclusive.

    My first promise is not to ridicule people who seek to give back to the community. No single group should have a monopoly on public service. Stay tuned.

  2. I gotta say, that’s some nice-looking masonry work showcased on your business site.

  3. It’s okay, Blair. Mitch isn’t involved in this office, you can sit this one out.
