Video Interviews With Greenfield School Board Candidates

Each candidate was asked the same questions and given 3 minutes to tell voters why they should be one of the three candidates chosen for the board in the April 3 election.

The is just a few short days away, and with no contested aldermanic races on the ballot, local attention has turned to the .

To give Patch users and voters a sense of who these candidates are, Greenfield Patch conducted video interviews with five of the candidates. All candidates were given the following questions in advance of their video interview:

  • What is one thing people should know about you before they head to the polls?
  • What is one decision the Board made in the last year or two that you either strong agreed with or disagreed with?
  • What is the district's most immediate need?
  • Of the other candidates, which one(s) would make strong Board members and why?

Candidates were also given time for a closing statement.

Videos were limited to 3 minutes. In some cases, the videos were edited down to meet the maximum time allowed.

Len Cich, , did not participate.

I appreciated some of the candidates stepping out of their comfort zone to do these interviews. It was a bit different from the norm.

Cathy Walsh talks about having a "strategic plan or blueprint for the district" What was her strategic plan during her first 18 years on the board? Did she have a plan previously? Did we meet or exceed her previous goals after 18 years? Why would anyone vote for a person who after 18 continual years of board service left the district with below average test scores? Did her previous 18 years of planning and blueprinting produce the results she intended? Epic failure in my opinion!

Sure she had a plan Ben, just go to the corner of 60th and Layton and look to the south east at the beautiful Taj Ma Hall she and Almquest and a couple of others put up and BS'ed the voters about renovating the High School and she was also part of the 11.19% tax increase in 2009 and 2010 along with Rick Moze and a couple of others. Watch out how you vote my friend. Wolves in sheeps clothing.

Did you know that Rick Moze and Russ Spahn both signed the recall Walker petition? I think we should ask these canidates whether they are in favor of Act 10 or not

Beware Walsh voted for a 11 percent tax increase while most people couldn't even support there family's. Spahn is a arrogant spendthrift he couldn't even manage his own fire dept budget as chief he came in 300,000 over budget! Not to mention missed more meetings than he attended being on the business committee for the school district! Moze is a rubber stamp for the superintendent yes to a new school yes to raises.....

Did you know that Brad has never attened a meeting, and his home was in foreclosure. Make sure you check into each person.

What so you would only be a good school board member if you agreed with Act 10 or what the G. Walker believes? Unbelievable!!!!!
