    This promises to be one of the most interesting elections in years. The political factions are not clearly defined as they had been in previous years. We have some independent candidates that are trying to make a difference, however do they have enough following to make it in. As you know only 16% of the registered voters voted in the last election. We have those running just because someone put them up to it. It will be interesting. May the best candidate with a true interest in the education of children prevail. Some one that can make Pepito Elote happy now that he has also found a problem at IDEA.
