I am voting the tax payers friends, and only 2 of the incumbants meet that criteria. Go Dave and Lori, and thanks for having our back. Still got 2 votes any ideas?

I'm glad to see my friends Dave and Lori have caught your attention. We have many great choices this time. The challenge is that I have four or five other friends in this race and only tow votes left. I feel strongly that Keith Murphy is abosolutely running with the right intentions and is one of the brightest people in the district. I'd have to say Keith. Yes.

Then there are Tom Maglicco who does so much in the community, Robin Kelly, who is a great friend and very intelligent as well, Mark Holtzman who's family has served McKeesport(and the district) for sol long. Pat Maksin is an educator and sister of my late good friend Chuckie Lickert....

My third vote is truthfully up for grabs. I will be looking to learn more about each candidates and intentions before I make up my mind.

I have four votes and want the four candidates best suited to provide our children the greatest educational environment possible. We also need them to be fiscally conservative as I don't believe our tax base can afford any increases.

Dave and Lori have both suugested and gained tax cuts in the past. If you are looking for a taxpayer's friend, they are certainly your candidates!

Good luck picking four out of this field. I doubt you can make a bad choice.

Looking at these polling numbers,I guess none of the committee people have computers,or are completely out of touch with what the voters want. Quick question, what do you get if you use a dollar to buy something for $.50?

CHANGE, AND IT'S A COMING

I think the riddler is trying to say good bye to Mr Segina. Kind of like when Penguin fans chanted Hextall,Hextall. You are right though, he should be on a council poll.

Does this article effect your thoughts on this?

Would you like the selection of the Superintendant to be open so that all qualifed in the district and those outside the district could apply?

As a parent in the district I want the best person available for the job regardless of race, creed, present residence, etc.

Mr. Brinkos is solid. I've been friends with him and his brother Myles since High School. Is he the best available if the process is opend to others in the district and those outside the district? I could not tell you and neither could any board member.

One never knows until they open the process to all.

This sounds like an excellent poll question.

Looks like McKeesport has more computers and better candidates than W.O.

Can't wait til we get that new school above Cornell.

Glad to see my coommies leading the ticket!

Don't know Dave Donato or Lori Spando personally, but it does seem that they are on the board for the RIGHT reasons, and really look out for the tax payers and kids.They get my vote.

I can speak from experience. Dave and Lori are the cream of the crop.

They've cut taxes and worked to improve education and facilities.

Two of the only politicians in town who have NEVER lied to me.

On the subject of tax cuts, they supported a much bigger tax cut two years ago but were undercut and halved by one canidate in this race.

What happened? THe surplus rose and the taxpayer again lost.

Electing these two is a no-brainer.

There are other good candidates. Of those, I would look at Tom Maglicco, Keith Murphy, Robin Kelly and Terry Cooper.

The yound man Adams (why didn't he make this poll Edge?) is impressive. he has an uphill battle in this tough field. Will certainly be a contender in two years when 5 seats are available.

Pat Maksin is a good lady and an educator. I'm not convinced having an educator on the School Board that comes from within the district is a good idea. Would you want that person neogtiating teacher contracts? That aside, Pat is a fine woman and comes from a fine family. I think she has an outside shot at winning.

No offense to other candidates, and there are other good ones, but those are my educated opinions.

Peace.

Mark is a friend and has supported me in the past. Forgive me for not mentioning him above.

I have too many friends in this race and too few votes.:(

Anyone looking for lower taxes should vote Donato and Spando, I know I am.

Like Tax Break - I support Spando and Donato. I know Dave and Lori attempted to lower taxes two years ago only to be undercut by Holtzman by a much lesser reduction.

He stole the golden ring and thought it would help him win the DJ office. But the Mayor backed his opponent and Holtzman lost. And now the Mayor backs Holtzman for school director. Strange?

The Mayor is the city boss of four school directors, the boss of the son of one director, and may add Holtzman.

Why not hold the MASD board meetings and council meetings together - it all in the family.

My friend the edge says that these polls only allow 10 choices. I hammered him on that. I apologize for him. I'll see if i can't add such a poll with all names to my blog: www.paulshelly.com .

I'm sure I can, just have to find the time.

Peace.
