Did the Democrat party (Billy Halstead and George Shadid) properly vet Ms, Gordon? Looks like they didn't or if they did they have a motto of "vote Democrat or be damned". For more of the story than just her questionable past, you might want to check out her attendance and reliability.
For more information, click on Joan Krupa's website. You may find Gordon's "absentee" record from school board on, quite interesting.
You really don't want "more of the same in Springfield", do you?
