"Trustee Steven Nelson abstained; he later said he was not entirely happy with the list, but not entirely opposed to it, either."
Wait a minute, so the first action by this grassroots candidate that's been so vocal about how the previous board of Trustees had not produced results for the community.....
.......is to abstain?
Maybe Mr. Nelson is realizing its far easier to yell from the bleachers and play armchair quarterback, than it is to sit on the proverbial hot seat and make actual decisions. That its easy to sound righteous at the podium, when you're one of the public, but not so easy when you have to actually work with your peers to come up with compromises.
Methinks Steve is thinking politics is all about perfect solutions, when perhaps it's really about choosing the best of otherwise crappy options with people you might even despise.
Oh well, its ok Steve. I'm chalking this up to you being a newby politician.

Sounds about right, Jester.
And, it sounds like you would know all about this.

What a great idea for for both schools! A Performing Arts Theatre! Graham always has sellouts for their performances. I hope it will hold more seats than it currentently does. It will be able to help the kids further their knowledge of the Arts.
The new tech. will be wonderful! Living here in Silicon Valley our schools should be up to date! Thank you for the students!!!
