Last week, the Morning News took Highland Park resident Tincy Miller to task because her campaign sent out a flyer with a couple of spelling errors. The News even gave George Clayton, the English teacher who ousted Miller from the State Board of Education two years ago, a chance to gloat.
Glass houses, Mr. Clayton. I came across your campaign website last night. First of all, the URL makes it look like you’re running for the Texas House instead of the State Board of Education. Second of all, an English teacher should know that the best way around the awkward back-to-back e’s in “reelect” is a hyphen, not a capitalized second “e.”
Third, let’s check out the menu you’re presenting to the site’s visitors. They have a choice of:
- New Contact Us Widget 1
- New Text Widget 2
- New Text Widget 1 (Why does this come after New Text Widget 2?)
- Schedule of Events
- Page 2
- Page 2 (Yes, again. And neither tab takes you anywhere.)
Finally, that’s a nice schedule of events you’ve compiled. I expected to see things like “Candidates Forum” or “Voter Registration Deadline.” Instead, you included “2nd Qtr. Report Cards,” “PTA Meeting — January,” and “Talent Show Rehearsal.”
Nice job all around. Best of luck with your reElection campaign.
