If you're wondering who to vote for in the upcoming school board elections in Billings, here are the four candidates to look for on the ballot. They are pro-parent, pro-kid, and pro-freedom. They have been speaking out against school closures, mask mandates, sporting events restrictions, and more:
Shannon Johnson - Zone 3 - North Billings-Heights
Chad Nelson - Zone 4 - Central Billings
Tailgate rally Thursday night. We're talking about Emily Pennington, the Billings West High cheerleader with Down Syndrome. School District 2 in Billings is trying to deny her the opportunity to attend her senior year of high school, and graduate with her friends.
What a heartless decision from the Billings School District 2 school board and superintendent. First off, they've been dragging this family along since November of last year. Now, they're telling the family that this issue will NOT be on the school board agenda.
Either way you count it, there was a big showing on the Yellowstone County Courthouse lawn of parents, teachers, and kids speaking out against the last-minute decision by School District 2 to force masks on teachers and kids.
They don't have the will of the people. That is the bottom line when it comes to a mask mandate in Billings public schools. If a parent wants to mask their kids- go for it. We won't judge you. But don't force these masks on our kids. Stop dividing our community.
