You can still write her in. You can write anyone in out of protest for the candidates you don't like. Or you can skip voting on that race.

Sarah Manski's name is still on the ballot, right? As Stu says upthread, if she gets the most votes, the school board appoints someone to the seat. Maybe they would appoint former Mayor Dave. Or Stu. I'd rather have either of those guys than Mertz. http://media.cityofmadison.com:8093/med ... f9a881c71d


For the record, MTI still has not made an endorsement regardless of John Matthews decision to support Manski.

Likely the will accept the will of the voters and appoint Mertz; Could you imagine Manski getting 45% Mertz 40% and Mirilli getting 15% and then appointing someone instead of the guy with nearly half the electorate's votes? You will have another conflict on your hands...

WTF, did he not know what the obligations to the job would be. We'll never have viable third party candidates when fuckwads like this try to run.
