I ASKED THE CANDIDATES FOR EVERY RACE IN EVERY DISTRICT ACROSS THE CITY, "WHAT WILL YOU DO IF YOU DO NOT WIN YOUR RACE ON NOVEMBER 8TH?" BUT LINDA OWEN IS RUNNING UNOPPOSED. SO I ASKED HER "WHAT ARE YOU DOING BETWEEN NOW AND WHEN YOU TAKE YOUR SCHOOL BOARD SEAT IN JANUARY?" 

"The short answer is, everything I can! I am still campaigning and going to events to meet the folks in my district.  I am talking, or really mainly listening, to folks in the schools and in the community.  I am reading current research about teaching, especially reaching children in poverty.  I am making feeble attempts to learn Spanish. And, I am answering questions!"
