Minneapolis School Board: Anybody but Baker

Looking over the ballot for the two at-large seats for the Minneapolis School Board next week, there are four possible choices. Richard Mammen is the only one who is endorsed by the Minneapolis Federation of Teachers, so he's the best choice.  T Williams doesn't have any anti-teacher or anti-teacher union positions on his website, and seems to have a good grasp of the district. Rebecca Gagnon doesn't seem objectionable, but she does mention difficulties with teacher unions on her website. Chanda Smith Baker comes from a background of charter schools, and is openly hostile to school teachers, except when seeking their votes. She is supported by Sondra and Don Samuels. So remember next Tuesday when voting for the Minneapolis School Board: Anybody but Baker - ABB.
