District Four Board of Education Candidate Q & A

Since coronavirus has led to the cancellation of in-person campaign events,  District 4 Board of Education candidates are taking your questions right here on The Merriweather Post!   Each week through election day, the four candidates will each answer a new question submitted by readers.  If you have a question, you can submit it using the form below.   This is a joint project with the Scott E Blog, who will be doing the same thing for the other races in the county.
