ELECTION OFFICE TRANSPARENCY FAIL
Democracy is whittled away in small bites. But this one is a rather big bite. It’s hard to explain, and it’s school board politics, but give it the old college try:
SWITCHAROO: One of the dirties tricks candidates pull is to make everyone think they are running for a seat, then coordinate with someone who shares their philosophy and pull a last-minute switcharoo right at the filing deadline.
But how can you do that when someone like David Nees, the Anchorage election bird dog and candidate for Seat E on the Anchorage School Board, is watching every day to see who filed?
