  • A $150,000 got Welch about 27% of the vote. His last school board election was the most costly in state's history. He is a big spender, but will come up shorter than Fields in April. I am estimating that between Welch and Moore, they will go over the top, way out. District 209 will cost them close to a $100,000, 89 $75,000, and 88 about $65,000. Where will the money come from? Out of our children's educational budgets.

    Johnny can't read because Welch and Moore have MORE SIGNS THAN VOTES!

    See DICK STEAL. See DICK RUN!
