Don Weiss to challenge John Bacon in the general election
Don Weiss, of Olathe, who is chief operations officer of Googols of Fun, 4931 W. Sixth St., said Thursday he would run as a Democratic candidate for the State Board of Education’s 3rd District.Harry McDonald is taking on Bacon in the primary. I think I'd pick a professional educator over a store operator, though a store that sells educational toys is at least close to the mark.
The current board member from that district is John Bacon, of Olathe, a conservative Republican who voted for science standards that criticize evolution, and to hire Bob Corkins, a former lobbyist who fought public schools, as education commissioner.
Weiss said both decisions upset him.
We'll see what emerges.
I'm still waiting on a challenger to Ken Willard. Anyone?
