“You have to come out to vote,” Bish said into her phone outside Central High School where there was both a school board and city council primary. “I don’t have a good feeling about this.”
Bish then turned to see a couple of potential voters walking across the lawn and shouted; “Vote Line B, please. Vote Line B. Line A was responsible for your streets not being plowed during the blizzard.”
Standing beside her, School Board Chair Kenneth Moales Jr., wearing a baseball cap, urged passers-by to vote the top line. He said parents voting the other way were just uninformed.
“They have no idea,” Moales said. “Fear works in our community so they sell fear. They will never sell truth.”
