Bond referendum

Some of the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County School system projects agreed to by the voters in the 2016 bond referendum have been completed, some of them have not, some of them have been cancelled and some of them are on hold. There are a variety of reasons for this, not the least of which is the skyrocketing cost of construction in recent years. Simply put, the money from the $350 million bond referendum doesn’t go nearly as far in 2024 as it would have in 2016. For more, see the Thursday, January 11, 2024 edition.

Kendall Fields was born and raised in Forsyth County, and now he wants to make a change here. This year he is running for the first time ever for the Forsyth County Board of Commissioners.
When he graduated from Mount Tabor High School in 2009, Fields moved to attend college to receive his bachelors and masters degrees. Once he moved back to Winston Salem after college, he began working at Parkland High School. This will be his 10th year teaching there. Fields currently teaches economics and personal finance. He is also chair of the Social Studies Department. Most of his career, Fields taught Civic Literacy.
With his extensive knowledge of the county, his experience with schools in the district and his desire to become politically involved, Fields believes he would be a good candidate for one of the three seats opening up on the Forsyth County Board of Commissioners.
“I knew that I always wanted to get more politically involved as I got older and it kind of hit a point where I said, ‘You’ve gotten older, you have to start somewhere,’” Fields shared. For more, see the Saturday-Sunday, January 6 & 7, 2024 edition.
