I have spent much of the last three days calling the Senate 10 candidates and asking education related questions of them. Actions often speak louder than words, and the voting records for Merlynn Newbold and Ken Ivory show that neither one voted with the UEA position more than 30% of the time.
Ed Loomis seemed open to working with JEA/UEA. Aaron Osmond wants to learn from JEA/UEA. Pat Malan admitted he did not know enough about education issues, so he may be willing to learn from JEA/UEA. From visiting with the candidates to date, it seems Ed Loomis and Aaron Osmond would be good for public education.
