Endorsements for School Board

Livonia Politico would like to announce it’s endorsements for two of the three candidates running for Livonia Public School Board (4 year terms).  The election is May 5th, 2009. Regardless of who you support remember to vote!

The candidate most strongly recommended by Livonia Politico is:

Roger Spence

Spence, a father of children in LPS, is also an attorney with a strong vision of transparency and openness to the LPS board that has been missing for far too long. While all decisions made by the board are tough the public right’s to know is their first objective and one that has been missing on the current board.  Spence has the ability to manage budgets as he has with his own business. Livonia Politico strongly endorses Roger Spence for School Board.

Livonia Politico also endorses, Colleen Burton. Ms. Burton a fixture volunteer at LPS and someone who has been involved with the PTA is a voice Livonia needs. While her background is great at helping our students, it’s less clear if she’s ready for the constant financial decisions that confront the board. However her dedication and quick ability to adapt make her the second choice of Livonia Politico.

Livonia Politico also discourages voting for Daniel Lessard. During his term he has made horrible decisions such as the Livonia Legacy Initiative and outsourcing certain functions of LPS. But Livonia Politico’s real issue with Mr. Lessard is his constant work to limit community involvement at School Board meetings including voting against a trial student liaison post which would have cost the district no money. Mr. Lessard has no children in the district and has lost touch of the necessary functions of the board. Livonia Politico urges voters not to vote for Daniel Lessard.
