Nothing has attracted more attention in Gilbert during the past two years than the antics of Gilbert Public Schools Governing Board member Daryl Colvin. Now that the dust has settled from the last election, the question is can Colvin be an effective member after the community resoundingly rejected his backed candidates, and by connection his policies.

Some things we learned from the recent Gilbert Public Schools Governing Board election. Democracy works at the local level, at least sometimes. Voters made it clear they want school board members who focus on the welfare of students and not on political ideology. The endorsement of Gilbert Mayor Lewis and the town council members does not mean much. None of the candidates they endorsed won. Mr. Colvin’s pathetic lament that he “… no longer has a seat at the table” as he likely finds himself in the minority is not true. Mr. Colvin will find that the new majority of Tram, Humpherys and Santa Cruz will treat him with more respect than how he treated those who disagreed with him in the past.
