School Board Press Release, 10/16/2021

From: Karen Prelipp, Huron County Democratic Party Chairwoman
October 16, 2021
For Immediate Release

The Huron County Democratic Party is dedicated to promoting a good education for our youth, jobs with fair wages for our workforce, and affordable accessible healthcare for our residents.

To assure a good education for our youth we carefully vetted candidates for the Norwalk School Board election on November 2, 2021. During this process we learned through their public statements that positions of some of the candidates doubt proven science and want to distort history.

It is this discovery that led us to publish a statement that cautions voters to do their own research to assure the person they vote for will encourage more emphasis on teaching civics, provide opportunities for students to practice critical thinking skills, and teach history through the eyes of the people who actually lived it.
