The Socialist Party Party of Michigan has endorsed the campaign of SPMI member Peter Ponzetti III, who is running on the applicable planks of the SPMI Platform’s “21st-Century Educational System” section for a seat on the Grand Blanc Board of Education. Upon submitting the requisite number of voter signatures by the February 8th, 2011 deadline, Ponzetti was among three candidates, running for the non-partisan elected seat, to qualify for the upcoming May 3rd, 2011 election ballot. Ponzetti subsequently obtained the SPMI’s official endorsement of his current campaign at the Party’s most recently held state membership meeting on February 12th in Kalamazoo.
The Grand Blanc Board of Education is composed of seven members, residing in the Grand Blanc Community Schools district, who are each elected to four year terms. The district encompasses the Genesee County city and township of Grand Blanc, as well as portions of the surrounding cities and townships of Atlas, Burton, Flint, Holly and Mundy within southern Genesee and northern Oakland counties.
