(Crystal A. Proxmire, Oct. 23, 2016)

Ferndale, MI – Green Party candidate Sherry A Wells is one of over a dozen candidates running for two open positions on the State Board of Education.:  Tom McMillin (R), Nikki Snyder (R), Ish Ahmed (D), John Austin (D), Scotty Boman (L), Bill Hall(L), Karen Adams (U), Douglas Levesque (U), Derek M. Grigsby (G), Sherry A. Wells (G) and Mary Anne Hering (W).

When asked why she is running, Wells said “I’m running for this position for some of the very Go Comedy Ad cherryreasons that we have the four main pillars of the Green Party, which is not just a one issue party. It’s not just the environment. But as I explained it, it’s also the green in people’s pocket. It’s the social justice that goes for financing and funding education fairly. The third pillar is grassroots democracy, which means getting our elected school boards back in our own control, which we do have here in Ferndale and in most of Oakland County.  And nonviolence, which is from bullying to domestic violence, all the way up to the money spent on war and things instead of on education.”

In her interview with oc115, Wells talked about the power that comes along with the State Board of Education, her involvement in her kids’ schooling, the need to address suspensions which can lead to students dropping out, and the need reclaim authority from the State back to the Board of Education.
