We the Voting Public of Union County are well aware of the issues that exist within our School Districts with regard to overcrowding as well as much needed repairs to our schools. We believe that each and every child in Union County deserves a safe, clean and dry school without leaking roofs and other hazards. We also believe that each family that currently has children enrolled in Union County Public Schools should not be subjected to the redistricting of their children to another School within Union County. We understand the issues at hand, we understand the difficulties facing the BOE at this time, we understand some decisions made will not favor all families and will have some negative impact on us all. We have tried to have our voices heard, we have tried to sit back and let our elected officials do what is best for our children. We have not been heard, nor taken seriously.
With that said, we sign this petition with the purpose of our voices being heard loud and clear. We have the right to elect officials to the BOE and we will exercise that right come 2014 and 2016. We vow that by signing this petition we state that ANY Union County Public School BOE member who votes to accept the $11 Million dollar award offered by the County and/or ANY Union County Public School BOE member who votes to Redistrict our children will fail to get our vote come time for re-election. Those of us signing this petition vow to elect new candidates that share the same values that we as parents do for our children. The issues are difficult however, compromise and redistricting is NOT the answer. We will speak loud and clear at the ballot box in 2014 and in 2016. Please, we ask that the current BOE members work diligently to find alternatives to redistricting and to stand firm against any compromise with the County with regard to the Jury award for our Schools.
