Carl your comments on the Arnie Bryant show lacked evidence and support for some of the candiates you endorsed. One particular candidate that I full heartily support is Kimberly Lightford. However, we did agree on not endorsing Welch.I am supporting Lightford in this election, like I have in all of her senate races, but I will definitely advocate that she does something about the school districts in her community. I believe Lightford is sincere in her efforts to improve her communities and bring back as much money as she possibly can, but she needs to be more pro-active with education. I would suggest that she develops an educational committee with people from Proviso township to help her initiate dialogue and create solutions to our failing schools. I know she cannot complete this difficult task alone and that is where she needs to have others in the community assist her. A good idea would be to have an educational summit to address the problems that are occuring in Proviso Township. I had hoped that she would not have supported the building of the Proviso Magnet School and taken a stance against spending $40 million, but instead investing that money in East and West. I think Lightford has her best interest in Proviso, and she definitely has my support and vote. Carl sometimes you can be a impractical in your statements, but strangely as it sounds that is what I like about you.
