THE ISSUE: School board District 5 race.
OUR OPINION: Powers the better pick.
Experience, it is said, is the best teacher. In the contest for the District 5 school board seat, we also think it makes for the best candidate.
The race sees three-term incumbent Linda Powers squaring off against newcomer Donna Fletcher, who has been in the district for decades as both student and employee but is seeking office for the first time.
