Norfolk's citywide election for School Board and City Council takes place May 1st.
Norfolk's School Board has fourteen candidates running in all but the two superwards. The board is responsible for overseeing the Superintendent, who sets overall policy for the system, and for the annual budget request to the Council -- though it's worth noting that the board has no power to levy taxes and is entirely dependent on the amount the Council approves for its operational budget. The Antonym does not endorse candidates, and merely provides this questionnaire as a service to the public. We sent this out and received responses from ten candidates.
We received no response from the following:
Ward 3: Carlos Clanton.
Ward 4: Leon Rouson, Christine Smith, & Alfreda Thomas.
