It seems like Mesa County never seems to learn from its past mistakes.
Stand for The Constitution (SFTC), the local extremist group that pushed to get Tina Peters elected County Clerk in 2018, that continued to support Peters even after her loss of 574 of ballots in 2019 and even after her indictments on multiple felony criminal charges related to election tampering, is now working to get Barbara Evanson and CynDee Skalla elected to the District 51 School Board in the November 7, 2023 election.
Stand for the Constitution also backed the three conservative school board members Haitz, Lema and Jones who have brought rancor, questionable ethics, uncertainty, disruption and hatred to the school board.
That says something very clear about Stand for the Constitution and the candidates they support.
Candidates SFTC supports are likely to be divisive and bring extreme political and religious agendas to the Board.
Barbara Evanson, for example, is ready to start banning books from D-51 school libraries, according to this interview posted on YouTube on October 8, 2023, under an account called “mesacountycompass.”
