Country’s biggest school board race to be decided Tuesday in Douglas County
CENTENNIAL, Colo. -- For most Coloradans used to the biennial barrage of television ads, phone calls and door-knocking canvassers with armfuls of door-hanger leaflets, this fall has been a welcome break from the incessant political noise. Except in Douglas County. Here, there has been no break to the noise -- honking horns from sign-wavers at curbside protests, political ads in heavy rotation on the local cable airwaves -- as the country's most hard-fought, high stakes school board race comes down the stretch.
