Today the Washington Post endorsed Democrats Eileen Filler-Corn (41st House seat) and Sandy Evans (Mason District School Board) for next Tuesday’s Special Elections (March 2nd, polls open 6:00 am to 7:00 pm).
Ms. Evans has more experience and better ideas … a consistent track record of work on school issues … spent years scrutinizing the school budget [and] is specific in where she would cut and how much she would save.
Voters in the Mason District will fill the school board seat left vacant by last fall’s election of Kaye Kory to the House of Delegates. It’s ostensibly a nonpartisan position, but political parties are allowed to make endorsements. Gov. Robert F. McDonnell (R) is backing attorney Samantha Rucker, while Fairfax’s Democratic establishment has embraced former journalist and school activist Sandra Evans. Both candidates rightly identify the budget shortfall facing the schools as the top issue, but Ms. Evans has more experience and better ideas.
Ms. Evans, a former reporter for The Washington Post, has a consistent track record of work on school issues linked to her two daughters, who graduated from the public schools. As a leader of an effort to change high school starting times, Ms. Evans spent years scrutinizing the school budget; a result of that work was transportation efficiencies that saved the system millions of dollars. When she talks about cutting administrative costs, she is specific in where she would cut and how much she would save.
Mason is the county’s most diverse area, with the most students coming from low-income families; Ms. Evans speaks knowledgeably of their needs and the importance of the county doing a better job to serve their interests.
