SC School Board Candidates Talk About Goals
Next Tuesday is the general election and six candidates will vie for four spots on the Sioux City Community School Board. They are banker and activist Monique Scarlett, appointed board member Miyuki Nelson, businessmen Dan Greenwell and Taylor Goodvin, software engineer Shaun Broyhill, and Western Iowa Tech executive Dr. Juline Alberts. Siouxland Public Media spoke with five of the candidates this afternoon at a public forum at the Sioux City Public Library.
The candidates talked about some of the issues they wanted to tackle if they were elected. Greenwell said he would like to help the school district improve its budgeting.
“I think we do it at a level that’s not nearly detailed enough. Million dollars of taxpayer money. With the new assessments going up, people are concerned is my tax bill going up?
Albert said her focus would be on students and she would spend time with them.
“Find out what kinds of concerns they’re facing . . .. we had twenty years ago.”
Scarlett said she would be focused on three things if she were elected to the school board.
“Educator empowerment . . . student success.”
Taylor Goodvin could not attend the forum due to a work commitment.
The general election is next Tuesday, November 5.
