This site has been very useful in identifying the many problems facing the Pittsburgh Public Schools.
But identifying the problem is just the first step. The second step, obviously, is to ACT to solve the problem.
On November 8, 2011 there will be elections in four PPS school districts.
The incumbents are marked with an (I).
Regina B. Holley, Democrat
Dara Ware Allen, Republican (I)
Bill Isler, Republican, Democrat(I)
Sherry Hazuda, Democrat (I)
Lisa Jones, Republican
Mark A. Brentley, Sr., Republican, Democratic (I)
Rosemary Moriarty, Moriarty-Independent
If you are satisfied with the direction the district is taking, vote for the incumbents.
But if you are serious about wanting change, please contact Ms. Holley and Ms. Jones and offer to help!
These two ladies need help; people to help get the word out and to man the polling places on election day.
Even though Mr. Brentley is an incumbent, he is a true outsider with the same reform views as Ms. Holley and Ms. Jones.
As the old saying goes, talk is cheap. Please do more than just talk about PPS problems!
Please consider contacting Ms. Holley, Ms. Jones, and Mr. Brentley. Offer to help! That's the only way things will change.
