I’ve been given some tips lately about various school board candidates (such as Terry Kemple in Hillsborough) who aren’t exactly friends to science education. As I round up information on candidates to watch, I’ll post updates for y’all. My latest update for you comes from Pasco County. Candidate John Tracy, president of the Faith and Family Values Republican Club of Pasco County, was the subject of a past newspaper article that includes this nugget:
Although he does not have a specific agenda to speak about yet, Tracy said voters could expect him to consider all issues from his world view — that of a Baptist pastor who believes in the Bible. He supports offering alternatives to teaching evolution in science, for instance, and he contends that the role of religion in U.S. history must be presented accurately.
