You're Elected, Now Get To Work!
Congratulations to the new Fortuna school board members: Don Brown, Marilyn Strehl, Janice Olkin, Daniel Coleman and Ken Steele. Oh, and Estelle Fennel and Rex Bohn...ya'll did just fine, too.
It's an Above The Fold observation that if you give much more to your community by volunteering, joining service clubs and helping with non-profit fundraising efforts, you probably have a better chance of winning elections than by politicking alone. Do you want to better your community, then pick up a shovel or flip a pancake. (Er, if you do pick up a shovel, make sure you have the proper permitting.)
