    Jose, The school board candidates who I have heard are reliably against Common Core are: Michael Weston (District 2), Terry Kemple (District 4), and Dipa Shah (District 6)

    Interesting night. I'll be making my recommendations regarding the judicial candidates. With all going on this election, I nearly forgot about the Medical Marijuana initiative on the ballot as well. Personally and also I am recommending against this initiative. As a former Internationally Credentialed Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Counselor for many years, I'd be happy to give reasons and facts behind why I am against it if you contact me.

      I would like to see the reasons as i appear to be in the minority feeling this would not be good for our State.

      I would be more than happy to have a meeting to discuss why I shared what I did however, I would only ask that anyone opposed to my points remain civil. I have a fairly open schedule.

    Great Forum! I met the candidates, was eager to hear what each had to say in their presentation. I love the question and answer voters guide. My husband and I debated the speaches and answers from the voter guides.
    Thank you Bells Shoals for having this event.
    God Bless America!

    It was almost too large of a event. Too many candidates too little on the issues.

    The Bell Shoals Baptist Church forums have been excellent because they give each candidate a serious platform to present themselves. I have been at a number of these and suggest, if you have not done so before...that you consider not only going yourself but bringing others as well. Also, before each candidates "dog and pony" - you can speak with them personally @ their respective tables with any particular questions that you might have.

    I wish I could be there but I'm having surgery that day. Was hoping maybe there would be a link
    to watch on line?

    This is an awesome event! You will get to meet with the candidates attending at 5:30-6:00. There is SO much in the planning of this non-partisan event so we can make intelligent choices, especially for judges. Make it a priority!

    I'm also looking forward to hear this candidates, and what they think about Common Core, which i'm totally against.

    Looking forward to learning more about these candidates. I am a CONSERVATIVE.
