Indian River School District board candidate makes his case
OCEAN VIEW, Del. – 47ABC got the chance to speak with Greg Goldman, who is running for the 4th district of the Indian River School District board. “I think it’s really important that we have someone who understands what parents are going through right now – especially with the changes that have happened over the past few months. What anxieties the teachers are having, parents are having, administrators are having on how to to shift – and are we going back to school?” said Goldman.
Goldman says he hopes to help the district make spending more efficient. He also says he’s now focused on safely returning back to school. “I was initially focusing on the finances of the schools and making sure we’re operating in an efficient manner – but now it’s really shifted to how are we going to do this safely and make sure that everybody feels good about what they’re doing with the school,” said Goldman.
Goldman tells 47ABC that he has three children in the district’s schools – and that the teachers and students come first. When asked about working alongside the district’s community advisory board – Goldman says he thinks community input is vital to making sure the school district serves all students equally. “I think community involvement is critical. I think some of the hings that we’ve run into in the past where we’ve had referendum votes – the community is not necessarily always aware of what’s going on or feels that they have input,” said Goldman.
The board elections will take place on July 21st. Polls will be open at Lord Baltimore Elementary School and Indian River High School from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
