School board candidates discuss why they should be elected
With the election for the four open seats on the Newton Community School District Board of Education taking place Tuesday, the Jasper County League of Women Voters hosted a forum Thursday at Newton City Hall.
All six candidates were present and taking questions from moderator Linda Wormely, who received the questions from the packed audience.
“My main approach, other than education, is I bring a lot of common sense to the board,” Joe Klingensmith said. “And I can decipher through comments that I get from the public and take all those and try forming those questions and and try relaying those to the staff members. I would like to continue serving on the board if given the chance.”
