Tom DeCosimo Will Be Your Voice In Time Of Confusion And Uncertainty

Thursday, June 4, 2020

Tom DeCosimo is a candidate for Hamilton County School Board District 2. Tom is a fiscal conservative with a strong background in business and finance. He will represent all taxpayers of Hamilton County and be your voice at a time of confusion and uncertainty.

We need a school board that is independent and not subservient to the teacher’s association or the superintendent. The collective bargaining law for Tennessee is clear on the roles of professional associations and school boards. School board members should work together with them not under them. And Tom DeCosimo will be the kind of board member that supports working within the revenue consistent with current economic conditions not bowing to unreasonable demands or pressure.

The current board member from District 2 gave all indications she would run for re-election then surprisingly withdrew. Her withdrawal happened to be after the deadline for others to qualify leaving one person in the race. The remaining candidate was the current board member’s campaign manager four years ago.

Skullduggery is defined as underhanded or unscrupulous behavior, trickery. Fortunately Tennessee has a law to protect candidates from the likes of that. Tom had to file a petition to be placed on the ballot under the Anti-Skullduggery Act of 1991.

We’ve seen enough disruption and chaos in our lives and it’s time for some stability and maturity. One shouldn’t have to employ Anti-Skullduggery laws to get his name on a ballot in America, but he did. Tom will lead the way through this maelstrom based on conservative principles, traditional values and a business-like approach to our public education system. He will not bow to the leftist Unifi-Ed crowd and the ill-conceived APEX or any other social engineering scheme that takes the focus away from student achievement.

I encourage everyone in District 2 to consider the choices and vote for Tom DeCosimo.
