No candidate is listed for Bill Isler's district 4; not clear if there is no opposition or candidates could not be at the forum or what.

Who is Celina Basant?

Questioner said...

A good way to find out will be to attend the forum!

Question for Questioner said...


Could each board candidate be invited to post their positions on this forum?

And maybe they could answer some standard questions sent out by you.

I want to know the candidates opinions about the role and value of Student Services. Dr. Holley is the only candidate that will be familiar with the importance of social workers and counselors. She has my vote.

I am afraid it is futile.

We are going private & charter. This ship sailed once the Dynamic Duo of Broad & Gates took over our district. Roosevelt was just there puppet, Lane is too.

When people try & defend her due to educational background it makes me more angry at her than MR. She should have known better.

I am afraid PPS has no control over it's own fate.

P party candidates for Pittsburgh council candidates debated in the South Side -- and my video camera was there.

I wish there was a similar event for school board members, when I was able to attend. Sorry I missed today's forum.
