Seeking the Nomination...

Patrick Madley Jr is Seeking the Nomination for Board of Education

Hello everyone. I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and happy new year.

It is no secret that I am very much into education and want to help provide the best education to students in any way that I can. For that reason, I am seeking the Democratic Nomination to run in November for the East Haven Board of Education.

For months I was undecided and eventually I decided not to run. The past few months have been crucial in my decision to reconsider running. I saw many things happen in the country that affects schools and education and I believe this is the right time for me to try my best to help out.

In the coming days/weeks you will see a series of posts of why I believe I am a qualified candidate for the Board of Education. This post is to just let everyone know I am actively seeking the nomination.

Please, I encourage everyone to leave comments and questions, especially critical ones, for me to answer. I want to prove to the people of this town I am seeking the nomination for the right reason, the students. Thank you and do not forget to comment!

Advice for Patrick....Lesson one in Politics...A pariah...Definition..... "one that is despised or rejected : outcast...." used in a sentence...."Mr. Robert Hoff's actions on the East Haven Patch have caused him to be a PARIAH. Therefore it is best for your candidacy to stay far way from him and any association with him." If Patrick stays away he's passes several vetting tests....
Yes I have explained this elsewhere.

Thank you for the support and kind words! But please, let's not attack Robert. This article about me and my candidacy do please keep it focused on me... Even if its a negative comment! :)

Patrick, I would suggest you make a priority list of issues/concerns you hope to address as a member of the Board of Education. Tell the people now (here on the Patch, in the New Haven Register, in the New Haven Independent, on Facebook, etc) what these issues/concerns are and how you hope to enact positive change as a member of the Board of Education. Hammer home these issues now and don't let up; you stand as good a chance as anybody in getting elected to represent the good people of East Haven. Be prepared for slime attacks upon your character by those who wish to maintain the status quo. I wish you all the best in 2013 and beyond... JA

This young man has "vetted" himself on the Patch. Never resorting to the attack tactics you so often use. He also knows how to spell and use punctuation, unlike yourself who often rants with the grammar of a nine year old. Patrick garners respect, because he shows respect, you solicit exactly the opposite. GET IT? Good, now get lost.
