Chew on This

Sure, we’re about to vote on fluoride, but also on issues about kids and open spaces. Here are WW’s endorsements for the May 21 ballot.

Portland Public Schools Zone 6

Tom Koehler - Nonpartisan

Easy choice here, folks, in this central Southeast district.

If you think the biggest challenge facing Portland Public Schools is how to get Wi-Fi out of district buildings, vote for David Morrison, a bookseller.

Morrison filed a 2011 federal lawsuit, alleging Wi-Fi is a health hazard to students. (As WW has reported, PPS has spent more than $170,000 defending itself against Morrison’s claim.) His campaign is based on his Wi-Fi obsession.

But if you’d like a School Board member focused on installing excellent principals in every building and strengthening ties with business, Tom Koehler is your candidate.

Koehler works as an adviser to Pacific Ethanol, which makes a gasoline additive out of corn. He previously worked as a political organizer and aide to former City Commissioners Gretchen Kafoury and Earl Blumenauer.

We’ll take Koehler, who has a lot of energy and a desire to shake up a board a tad too fond of consensus.
