On the Thursday edition of WFSU’s "Political Perspectives" with Tom Flanigan, School Board District One candidate Alva Striplin challenged incumbent candidate Forrest Van Camp. Their opinions on fundraising differ.
One caller helped to further distinguish between the candidates when he questioned the ethics of Superintendent Jackie Pons’s having hosted a fundraiser for incumbent Van Camp. At the fundraiser in question, Pons made a donation to Van Camp’s campaign, with total donations that night amounting to around $50,000. Van Camp defended Pons’ support.
