You can't allow anyone in that are more worried about people liking them and rubbing shoulders than doing what is right for everyone. Knowing her for as long as I have she is not the kind that rubbs shoulders. She does what is ethically right. I am thankful to know her way better than you jokers. Enough of this. I have better things to do.

you have better things to do than run for the school board. So do not berate others for doing what you are doing. So no one has yet to answer the question...what are her credentials, from where and in what. Since you know her so well answer the questions. So far you have not. Why?

Because I do not honor demands from slanderous individuals and i do honor my frienship and if you would like a change in how elections for school board are done then I suggest you step up and make that suggestion. You can't pick on one person and expect to get results. So my last post in this ridiculousness is that you should be asking for credentials if all the candidates blah blah universities and blah blah jobs at the open forum that already took place. Also don't forget these are PEOPLE who have feelings and have families so some respect for all the candidates is not much to ask for. Just because they put themselves out there for the better of all the kids does not give you the RIGHT to speak ill of them. Afterall isn't that the problem with all politics. Too many people spouting their opinions and anger towards those that are actually trying to make a difference. You will not receive more posts from me out if respect for her. I hope you don't start in on another candidate. Wow. Very disgusting.
Credentials

United States

are easy to produce. Either you have a driver's license, registration, and proof of insurance when the cops pull you over, or you don't

Why make excuses? Produce the dilplolma, produce the grades, or why run for a position of trust?

The validation of these credentials are important as due to allegedly having a PHD, the Daily Camera newspaper endorsed Mrs. Adams for this vital school board position.

One article in the Camera did say that she possesses a PHD in Bilingual Education which would be amazing to have that kind of experience on the Board. But interestingly she does not claim to have any work experience in this field which is a bit bizarre to hold such an advanced degree that typically takes 8-10 years of total university work (and $100,000 minimum) to obtain and then never work in that field? Or not be bilingual?

No Linked-In professional account, no web searches show a PHD for Christie Shook Adams? Please inform the voters what's the truth?

your post as clueless or whatever but isn't it interesting that her supporters will not answer the questions since they know her "so well". If it doesn't make sense then it isn't true. I am going to do some investigating how about you? If I had a PhD in education I would be in education not running a business (which is what?).

If you knew me at all, you would know I never copy and paste previous responses. But you are spending most of your time twaddling you trisomy-laden sister and providing back alley abortions to the resulting deformed offspring. Now do you recognize me, half-wit?

You all are spending so much time on ONE candidate. There are TWO seats open and FIVE candidates running. What about the others? What about Poppitz who did not answer the questions above? What about the finding out the degrees of other ones that graduated from universities? I second the question of who is out to "get" Adams? People only attack those who they feel threatened by? Why was Poppitz and Brown not at the Question and Answer session the other night? No matter who gets on they really are on for the right reasons. No matter how much you are icky or talk bad about them they will all accept the position with a happy face and do what is best for our kids! They are ALL parents!! Give all the candidates a break and remember all of them are there for the best reasons!

Boulder Weekly withdrew their endorsement because Christie Adams would not answer their simple question of where she earned her PhD. Sounds like she doesn't have a PhD.

was not at the question and answer session because of underlying "issues", a simple background check shows she did jail time for alcohol related offenses,and probation violations. That simple.
