Citizenship 101.

Version 2

I am Michael Bunitsky.  I am running for the Board of Education and I want to recruit you!

Last week I retired after serving forty years in education in Maryland.  As a Social Studies teacher and curriculum specialist in Frederick County, one of my most important responsibilities was encouraging students to be informed about their government at all levels and active in their communities.

As we begin the season to select our representatives to the Board of Education, I want you to know as much about the candidates as possible.  At 8:30 PM on February 3, 2016 there are 8 candidates, all of whom are listed below.

Voting is a sacred responsibility that is essential to our democracy.  Freedom to choose who will represent us is a right that Americans have fought and died for.  In recent years, voter turnout has been low in Frederick County Maryland.  Let’s change that for the better this election.

Integrity in education is a value I support and it is essential to a healthy future for our schools.  Your values will be expressed in your vote. Study each of us.  Look to see who is supporting us.  Determine what you want for the future of our school system.

Then Vote!!!
