Stackhouse is in; We Got Us a Race!

Tom Weber, who has been a great addition as  current Citizen Representative to the School Board's Finance Committee, is a worthy candidate for school board.  Early indications suggest this is a race between Weber and Stackhouse for the 2nd seat.  

Many feel that Jill Camber-Davidson has come on strong of late as a board member who will take a stand against fiscal irresponsibility.  Ms. Camber-Davidson has also been leading the charge against advertising in our schools.  We believe her tenacity and attention to detail merit a 2nd term.

Tom Weber is very well spoken and has a strong financial background.  Incumbent David Stackhouse has provided some spark in the last year as he has rebelled against a board majority that gave him no love during officer elections.  During a number of officer votes, only a single vote was cast for Stackhouse for each board officer slot.  Hmmm...whose was it?  Stackhouse's  checkered history during his last board term has seen his stature reduced from board president to simply a board member at large.   Will the community vote for the refreshing air of change that Mr. Weber offers?  In the past, Stackhouse relied on strong support form the youth football community.  Is that support still there? Stay tuned.
Both incumbents Dave Stackhouse and Jill Camber Davidson will be joined by a third candidate, Tom Weber of Sun Prairie, in their campaign for the Sun Prairie School Board. Seats on the board are elected at-large within the Sun Prairie Area School District.

Candidates had until 5 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 4 to submit their nomination papers for elected offices. The general election will take place on Tuesday, April 5.
