Midterm elections are often overlooked because “it is just local offices.” However, these local offices have the most impact on schools, criminal justice, and taxes. In keeping with our mission to further voter education, AAUW Carlisle, in partnership with YWCA Carlisle and the League of Women Voters, hosted a CASD School Board Candidate Forum on May 15. A large audience of students, parents, teachers and community members had the opportunity to hear from all six candidates. The diverse questions were researched and developed by a committee of the co-sponsors. Each candidate made opening and closing statements. The event closed with questions from the audience.
