Editor’s Note – Wayne Strong is a candidate for the Madison
Metropolitan School District Board of Education, Seat 7. There has
been some confusion about the status of Strong’s campaign.
Strong’s campaign released the following statement:

“Due to a recent medical incident and on the advice of my primary
care physician, I have made the very difficult decision to campaign
on a limited basis as we continue to monitor my medical situation.
On or prior to February 18, 2020, I will make the final
determination as to whether I will remain in the race. In the
meantime, I will do my best to answer as many questionnaires and
attend as many forums as possible. I would also like to take this
opportunity to thank everyone who signed the petition to get my
name on the ballot and all my supporters. I am truly blessed and
deeply humbled by your confidence in me. It really means a great
deal. Please know that my commitment to ensuring that every child
in our district has the best quality education we can provide them
remains steadfast. Thank you.”
