If you haven't heard by now, there is an for the San Bruno Park School District board.
I'm sure, however, that most people have heard about it as the Nov. 8 election is fast approaching.
What you might not have heard yet are the candidates' voices. Just as a refresher, the candidates are: incumbents Jennifer Blanco and Kevin Martinez and challengers Joseph Capote and Chuck Zelnik.
Let's face it. Most residents don't make it to the school board's monthly meetings and you might not necessarily know who are the two challengers.
So what better way to get to know the candidates than to see what they look like and hear what they have to say on video?
Here's my idea: You, the San Bruno community, will get to send your questions that you want answered from each candidate, either through the site, Facebook or Twitter. I will pick the best questions and then the candidates will get to connect with you by giving their best answers on camera.
This will sort of work like Vevo's ASK:REPLY project.
I would then like to put the videos on the site by next week so that you can get a clear idea who might best voice your desires and concerns on the school board.
Because this is a first, I need your feedback. Would this approach be helpful to you? Are there enough people to participate in this? Please let me know in the comments.
In terms of the , which is now formally called Measure O, I'm not sure if video would work. I might just stick with a written story. But let me know your thoughts about that as well.
This is all to get the community engaged.
