I wouldn't take it as a bad sign that a pro-Investigations SB member
got a lot of votes - so did a candidate skeptical of Investigations.
I think what you're seeing is a fair number of voters for whom the
math issue is not on their radar screens. I can tell you that the PSU
undergrad and grad students I know, for example, have no idea that
there's a math controversy. Math has gotten nothing like the press
coverage that the high school got two years ago. Also, keep in mind
that many people received e-mails like the one I got from Centre
County Obama, which said:
State College Area School Board – Vote for Four
If you live in the district please vote for the four registered
Democrats on your ballot.
We need a strong team committed to excellence in public education.
· Jim Leous for State College Area School Board – (Helped us
open the Obama office)
· Gowen Roper for State College Area School Board
· David Hutchinson for State College Area School Board
· Penni Fishbaine for State College Area School Board
Primary Election Today May 19, 2009

Nothing against the Obama people - they are making recommendations
based solely on party affiliation.
