Elsewhere in Wisconsin, silly!
In nearby Lodi, the two conservatives — Heather Baron and Scott Bilse, turned out two status quo school board incumbents. “City of Lodi staff described the turnout as unlike anything they had seen before outside of a national election,” a community newspaper reported.
“If parents want to ‘have a say’ in their child’s education,” Democratic Wisconsin Representative Lee Snodgrass sneeringly tweeted in February, “they should home school or pay for private school tuition out of their own budget.”
It turns out there was a third option: Take over the school board.All across the state Tuesday night, conservative parents won decisive victories in school board elections, ousting liberal incumbents and sending a clear message that their communities will no longer stand for mask mandates and radical curricula.
Snodgrass’ quickly deleted tweet served as something of a rallying cry for communities fed up with arrogant, incompetent liberalism. In Menomonee Falls, three conservative candidates who dubbed themselves the “moms on a mission” swept all three of the school board seats that were up for grabs. In the more liberal-leaning City of Waukesha, the slate of three conservatives completed a similar sweep, taking out two liberal board members and cementing a solid conservative majority. Two liberal incumbents went down in Pewaukee, too, where conservatives swept the three seats. So did conservatives in New Berlin. And the Whitnall School District.Parents Have Their Say | MacIver Institute
