Send us your questions for Shawnee Mission School Board candidates this week


Schools are important in northeast Johnson County, which means that school board elections are important. We need to know what questions you would like candidates for the contested school board seats to answer.

In this spring’s general election, two positions will be contested for the Shawnee Mission School Board that affect NEJC voters. In position one, which represents the SM North district, incumbent Sara Goodburn faces Mark Ellis. For the at-large position up for election this year, Elizabeth Rulo and Brad Stratton are the candidates.

We will pose a series of questions to each of the candidates in about a week. What issues would you like to see the candidates address? What specific questions would you like to pose to the candidates?

Please send us your questions this week. Send us your suggestions for questions at, via Twitter, via Facebook, or in the comments section.
