Sorry, didn't mean to be negative. Marton was very involved in clearing out the capped schools, and he wasn't very respectful of the families or kids that he was moving. That's all. He may have a good platform overall, but he made some enemies with his rhetoric. I will give him a good look. One thing I will say about Marce, she is good about the ABCs.

There is more substance in that website than the combined contributions of Savage throughout the redistricting process.

Granted I'm interested in hearing more from him.

Right or wrong, I'm still bitter Savage walked out of the vote rather than continuing to fight.

Thought the same thing. Love the comment about being SVP at Bank of America... they have more VP's than they do tellers.

The only thing I know is that he is very pro-west and pretty divisive, but I'll give him a fair second look. My vote will be all about curriculum.
Pot, let me introduce you to kettle.

Clearly you don't know what you're talking about because that doesn't even make sense if you knew where he lived.

Where are you seeing this rhetoric? I have never seen him comment anywhere. Are you getting this from a letter you saw in disclosure? You seem to think that everyone who didn't support your way of thinking is corrupt or an enemy.

Can you explain how he was very involved in clearing out the capped schools?

Maybe. Many will argue that we can't bring employers without resolving the traffic issues hence the need for the bypass. I'm just not sure the residential growth brought by the bypass would't end up making our traffic worse rather than solving our problem.

Traffic as well as more high density subdivisions which would add more students to the mix at UCPS and we'll be revisiting redistricting time and time again or the call for building new schools.

Marton is concerned about Marton and his little hood, and that's it. He made that quite clear to me on two occasions. Talk to him and you will get the same impression. Just my humble opinion - feel free to disagree or disregard. District 6 needs a Collins or a Stewart - somebody that pulls some weight!

My goal for CAPS going forward is to help the BOE beat on the BOCC for funds for capacity. I see the bypass as a good thing as it shifts the focus east a little bit. Maybe we can get ahead of the development a bit and put some seats somewhere between Cuth and SV/Mon in the future. That would give the BOE lots of options next time around.

Forgive my Marton comments, he may be a good candidate. Just negative because my dealings with him have been negative. We should hear what he has to say.
