Many were disappointed when local favorite Buddy Glover was passed over for the position of school board superintendent. The length and breadth of support for Glover from all those whom have had contact with him regardless of their racial background was made apparent.
But there is no reason why Lancaster need be deprived of his valuable service. He would be a shoo-in to be elected to the school board and, perhaps after a term or two, to the chair position. Then the School District of Lancaster would benefit from two extraordinary leaders: Superintendent Pedro Rivera and School Board leader Buddy Glover.
Glover is 58 years old. He has at least ten good years of public service ahead of him. Let's make the most of this popular and highly competent local figure.
