    My wife asked me some time ago what would be the first thing I would do if elected as Gould’s mayor. My response, “Resign.” That said, as a 37-year resident of Gould, I do have some thoughts on what might help Gould get out of the massive hole it is in.

    First of all, one must recognize that the massive hole we’re in is due to a long string of people with shovels. Gould has a long history of division and strife. A little-known fact is that Gould was the first school district in the United States to be forced by the U.S. Supreme Court to totally integrate its schools. Up until that time, Gould had “separate but equal” schools with the right of black families to send their children to the “white school” if they so desired. This “right” didn’t come about until the late 60‘s. That worked fine until more black families wanted to send their children to the white school than the white school had room for. When the school board refused some black families admittance to the white school because of overcrowding, a lawsuit ensued which worked its way all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. The Supreme Court’s solution was to do away with the “separate but equal” system and force the black school and white school to totally integrate. The events that happened after that served to more deeply divide an already divided town.

    Wow.

    Well, that's a way to look at it.

      To the extent that we focused on intra-party battles, it was primarily in the Senate races.  Consequently, we nominated many sleeper progressives in conservative districts to win back the House. One such member is Rick Crawford (Progressive AR-1).
