Dr. Chanda Jackson-Shorts Wins Capital Board Seat

Dr. Chanda Jackson-Short won the Capital School District Board of Education seat today.  With 190 votes, she had a close race with opponent Andres Ortiz who won 183 votes.  Kevin Ohlandt gained 119 votes.  Jackson-Short won East Dover Elementary School with 28 votes and tied with Ortiz at William Henry Middle School with 159 votes.  Ohlandt won Hartley with 19 votes.

Okay, enough of the official journalism stuff.  I lost!  But you know what, it was an interesting journey with lessons learned.  I’ve always known I’m a bit of a radical for many voters, and I’m okay with that.  What was supposed to happen happened.  I always believe God has a plan for everything, and this wasn’t in the cards.  Jackson-Short saved Capital from becoming an all-male board.  I will definitely be watching her to see what she does in the next five years.  Congrats Chanda!

For now, I’m pretty beat and I’ve been awake since 4:55am yesterday morning so I think I’m going to go to bed.  Tomorrow is a new day.

  1. Sorry, Kevin, but I guess God just doesn’t have that in the cards for you at this time.  It is our good fortune to still have you available to write your blog, informing the rest of us about what is going on in education.  Lorrie “Life is short.  Live it to the fullest.  It has an expiration date.” ~~unknown
