What do I stand for?

Serving The Community

  1. The White County School System has won many awards and is thriving for the most part, although there are issues that affect us all.
  2. I will balance the needs of the community – its taxpayers, parents, teachers, staff and students – so that we all succeed. I'll do this with passion, but also reasonably and objectively.
  3. School safety is paramount. But it won't be solved by slogans or quick fixes. It's a complex issue that should be considered carefully. I'm willing to make the hard decisions.
  4. Vouchers don't help anyone but the people who can already afford private school. I will advocate for White County Schools and against vouchers anyway that I can.

Who's Linda Erbele and why run for BOE?

I'm married to John Erbele, and together, we have 4 grown children and 2 grandchildren who attend White County Schools. I have a degree in journalism from UGA and spent 20 years with BellSouth in the corporate world. Since 1997, I've written for magazines and newspapers.

For the last 5 years, I've worked for the White County News and covered White County Schools. I've attended every BOE meeting in that time. Over the years, I've watched board members struggle with controversy and make decisions. 

I've studied our schools' ratings and compared them to others in the state. I can contribute level-headed analysis, objectivity and balance to the board - weighing the needs of taxpayers, students, parents, faculty and staff.

Candidates always say they don't have an "agenda." My goal is simple –  to have the best school system in the state as part of a thriving, dynamic community.

How do you pronounce that?
