Remember folks the ballot will say "VOTE FOR NOT MORE THAN THREE" for the School Committee and "VOTE FOR NOT MORE THAN FOUR" for Alerman-at-Large. However, you don't have to vote for 3 on the SC and 4 At-Large. If you really like a candidate as compared to the others you can "Bullet Vote" and just vote only for that candidate. This gives your candidate a slightly bigger piece of the overall pie and does not help you candidate's opponents. This is a valid approach and particularly useful if you think it will be close election.
Voting No on Override
Bulleting 3 Alderman-at-Large Candidates (all of whom are against the override):
LaRock, Medeiros, Conn
Bulleting 3 School Committee Candidates (to vote out MD who must go):
O'Connell, M-Grande, Deselm
Write-in Monica Medeiros for Mayor
If you vote for the maximum number (e.g.: 3 school candidates), that is not a bullet vote. Bullet voting would be voting for 1 or 2 of the 3 allowed votes for School Committee and 1,2 or 3 of the 4 allowed for Alderman-at-large.
Reconsider your vote for McAllister Grande.
In an editorial she submitted to the paper, she said her policy was to follow the mayor's policy. The mayor's is already on the SC so you don't need another one just like him. And what kind of candidate can't state their own policy??? They openly admit to being ready to copy someone else's ????
Even worse, Driscoll could become the school committee chair in the likeness of the most divisive SC Chair Melrose likely has ever seen: K Thorp. That means more diminishing public comment, shouting down citizens, bullying other SC members (particularly Carrie K), hiding expenditures from the public and other SC members, and of course slinging around the McCarthyist Norms whenever an SC member brings up a valid discussion she doesn't care to hear. Yep, more of the same.
