For Emmons Dist. 33: Galante, Hartl, Eldridge

Success - Article sent! close

Voters have a full range of candidates to choose from -- two incumbents and four newcomers to fill three positions on Emmons Elementary District 33 board. While the district is not facing the financial nightmares of other districts, incumbent Jim Galante stresses continual fiscal accountability. He brings a strong interest in technology as well as a business background and the education to match and should be retained. Melonnie Hartl, a science teacher, small business owner and community activist, isn't afraid to speak her mind and deserves a chance on the board. Diane Eldridge, a nurse with experience as a case manager for at-risk children, urges a balance between academics and a sense of community in the district and has potential.

Incumbent Eileen Huston, who indicated she supports fiscal responsibility in the Daily Herald's questionnaire, did not return calls for an interview. Also running for the board are Tom Lane and Benny Yee.
