To all of the volunteers, donors, candidates, parents, teachers, students and administrators who worked so hard on behalf of the independent candidates for the Douglas County School Board: Thank you!! We at TFPE are disappointed, but not discouraged, with the results of the School Board election. All of you have done extraordinary work over the last few months: you have raised public awareness and public outrage at the way the current School Board is undermining public education in Douglas County; you have galvanized public support for a vital public school system, and for public school students and teachers; and you have laid the foundation for a new and brighter future for Douglas County public schools. Much great work has been accomplished – but much also remains to be done. It is good people like you – parents and citizens who care deeply about the future of our community and our schools, and who are willing to stand up and fight for that future – who will make the difference. We look forward to continuing to work together with you to save our Douglas County public schools.
