BOE Candidate Forum gallery

Candidates for the Frederick County Board of Education at an Oct. 17 forum at New Spire Arts Stages.

The candidates on the Students First slate raised and spent more money than those on the Education Not Indoctrination slate over the period covered by the most recent round of campaign finance reports.

The two groups total seven candidates, seeking four spots on the Frederick County Board of Education.

Guess where Olivia Angolia spent January 6, 2021?


The Students First slate is committed to big spending and big government. They will always seek more control over the lives of students. They, in a pact with teachers and administrators, will always seek higher salaries and more staff. The salaries of high-level administrators are out of control.


Or the ones with common sense and a desire for students to receive a great education. Sorry, not buying your rant.

Indoctrination is what you get by following a religious book like the bible and then try to proselytize those beliefs upon others. Christianity is just a giant are all the others. No place for that in politics.


Your rant explains why you are the way you are.

Trek, You sure have some odd ideas about the ungodded. Whilst I’d be perfectly happy to believe in any gods that manage to show up, I can’t be bothered to search for them any more than I can be bothered looking for pots of gold at the ends of rainbows.
