Alberts is one of eight candidates running for four seats in the district. In-person, early voting just started in a spring election cycle that ends April 4.
Alberts was born and raised in La Crosse, graduated from Central High School and has two freshmen currently with the River Hawks.
On the show, he discussed the importance of passing the six-year, $60 million operating referendum that’s on the current ballot, though he saddles that to a transparency issue within the district.
We also discussed the consolidation plan to build a new high school that failed last election and what the plan should be with the district’s many buildings and declining student population.
Lastly, Alberts stressed the importance he sees with listening to the public, teachers and, most importantly, students.
There are four open seats up for a vote with eight candidates running for La Crosse School Board. Here are other interviews with them on La Crosse Talk PM:
