Our team continues to fight misinformation and slander. Follow the link below to read our response to the letter to the editor that falsely claims our campaign had anything to do with an alleged boycotting of local businesses.
Members of our Souderton community have received a slanderous letter filled with misinformation. It was signed by the Soudy Strong Conservatives and paid for by the Keeping Kids in School PAC, which endorses our opponents running for School Board. Please read our statement which refutes these baseless and bad-faith claims.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Bipartisan Write-In Candidates Join Scott Swindells in race for Souderton Area School Board Seats
Souderton, Pa. — October 11, 2021 — The Souderton Area for Responsible Leadership group (SAFRL) introduced their bipartisan slate of endorsed candidates for School Board Director of the Souderton Area School District: balloted candidate Scott Swindells and write-in candidates Dan DeMeno, Larry Dick and Alex Wisser.
“We believe school boards should be non-partisan, so we’ve endorsed both Republicans and Democrats who have agreed to put aside political differences to work together on behalf of our children and taxpayers,” said Corinne DeGeiso, SAFRL PAC chairperson. “In this hyper-partisan and divisive political climate, we want a school board that will commit to collaboration and fairness.”
The group is focusing their campaign on these issues:
· Reasonable health and safety measures to keep our students in school and safe.
· Engaging in open, transparent and respectful dialogue with the community.
· Ensuring the district resources are managed appropriately, balancing fiscal responsibility with educational excellence.
· Evaluating student achievement data and working to ensure all children in our district flourish to their fullest potential.
Each candidate is a resident of the district as well as a parent of school-age student(s) who attend district schools, from elementary to high school. Dan DeMeno is a graduate of Souderton Area High School and works as a municipal planner. Larry Dick is a scientist and an active community member. Alex Wisser volunteers in many community organizations, including schools, and holds a law degree. Additional candidate biographical details can be found on the SAFRL website.
An open event is being planned for the public to meet the Souderton Area for Responsible Leadership candidates and hear more about their platform.
Souderton Area for Responsible Leadership is a nonpartisan group of residents, taxpayers, and parents committed to public education. We believe the school system is our most precious community asset and it must be preserved through responsible stewardship.
