The folks that put together the Apple Ballot for the teachers' union have put out a rather interesting announcement, shown below. The announcement tells people that are interested in getting the Apple stamp of approval in the 2012 Board of Education elections that they should contact the Apple folks by January 11, 2012.
Yes, the Apple won't be contacting you if you file to run for a Board of Education seat. The Apple is not interested in interviewing all Board of Education candidates because in all likelihood they have already pre-selected their picks. But if you would like to help the Apple pretend that they evaluate all candidates, give them a call by January 11th.
And, oh by the way, January 11th is the FILING DEADLINE for anyone that wants to run for one of the 3 open Board of Education seats in the 2012 elections.
