Campaign themes


In an interview with This Week Community News, Weininger cited fiscal responsibility as an important element of his campaign:[1]

"I think that everybody that runs for a board seat should keep in mind the public interest. The leading public interest is making sure our money is well spent. I don't think the Dublin community is averse to spending funds if it's a valuable program or service to the school, but they want us to manage our money well."

What was at stake?

Incumbents Lynn B. May and Stu Harris along with newcomer Weininger sought election to the board on November 5, 2013. There were no certified write-in candidates by the August 26 deadline so Harris, May and Weininger ran without opposition. Incumbent Gwen Callender did not file for re-election in order to run for Franklin County Municipal Court Judge.[3]

Note: The United States Census Bureau considers "Hispanic or Latino" to be a place of origin, not a race. Therefore, the Census allows citizens to report both their race and that they are from a "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin simultaneously. As a result, the percentages in each column of the racial demographics table will exceed 100 percent. Each column will add up to 100 percent after removing the "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin percentages, although rounding by the Census Bureau may make the total one or two tenths off from being exactly 100 percent.[6] This Ballotpedia page provides a more detailed explanation of how the Census Bureau handles race and ethnicity in its surveys.
