PEA Follow-up

Connie Jenkins-Buwa has announced the candidates receiving the endorsement of the Plainfield Education Association.

Jenkins-Buwa is chairperson of the PEA School Board Elections Committee.

For three three-year seats, the PEA is endorsing Lisa Logan-Leach, Brenda Gilbert and Mahogany Hendricks. For the two-year unexpired term, the endorsement goes to Katherine Peterson.

The endorsements follow a forum held on March 24. Click here for Plaintalker's report on the forum.

The school board election is April 21.

Others seeking the three-year terms are Rasheed Abdul-Haqq, Patricia Barksdale, Joanne Hollis and Joseph Ruffin Sr. Tammy Westbrook and Terrence Williams are also seeking the two-year unexpired term.

Abdul-Haqq, Barksdale and Logan-Leach are incumbents seeking re-election.

It is important to mention that as members of the district's bargaining team Barksdale and Ruffin could not accept PEA's endorsement.

It's important to mention that endorsements by PEA shouldn't mean anything to voters.

It is important to mention that whenever one does not receive an endorsement by a union or a newspaper, one immediately starts to call that source as unimportant.

it's also important to mention that the current President of PEA is a joke. PEA members need a better, stronger, balanced more thoughtful leader. Guess ultimately you do get the leadership you deserve though.
