Campaign signs are blanketing the local landscape in anticipation of election day on November 5th. Tim Kerr, Vice President of the North Penn School Board, is seeking another term. Kerr says, addressing costs and salary increases will be a priority if he’s re-elected.
“I certainly get along with union leadership, I’m willing to sit down and work with them. They need to be realistic as to what is out there and what taxpayers are willing to do.”
Kerr is running on the Republican ticket.
One of the Democrats running for a seat on the North Penn School Board says he will treat everyone with respect. An important aspect that Murali Balaji believes is missing, particularly when interacting with teachers.
“What we will do is listen to them and we will negotiate fairly.”
Balaji and Kerr were guests on the AM Edition Thursay morning
The Network of Victim Assistance or NOVA, a Bucks County non profit, is reaching out to school children who are the targets of bullying. Nova’s Elementary Education Coordinator, Mary Worthington says, it’s important for the parents of a child who’s being bullied to know the details.
“Where is the hot spot, where is it happening, how often is it happening, who is there when it’s happening and who is not there when it’s happening.”
Worthington adds, those facts are important if parents decide to file a complaint with the school’s administration. Nova offers a 24-hour hotline for victims at 1-800-675-6900
