S.J. Mercury Coverage of Libertarian in Redwood City School Board Race

Excerpts below from an article today by Shaun Bishop in the San Jose Mercury News.  Former county Libertarian Chair Jack Hickey, an elected trustee of the Sequoia Health Care District, is running for county supervisor as well as Redwood City Elementary School Board (SmartVoter site here).

Jack Hickey, another challenger trying to unseat the incumbents in the Nov. 3 election, said he is running for the school board as a precursor to his campaign for San Mateo County supervisor next year. His main platform for both campaigns is the same — allow parents to designate a portion of their property taxes to sponsor a child's education in an alternative school or program. "If I get on the school board, I will have a little bit stronger voice in expressing my policy," said Hickey, 75.

Hickey, who is on the Sequoia Healthcare District Board and has run for numerous public offices, also said he would advocate for selling school sites to fix the district's budget problems.
