Scantron Announces Candidacy for Buffalo School Board

Scantron Announces Candidacy for Buffalo School Board

1662577_10101589770763598_2031401309_nMany people might know him as local beat-boxer extraordinaire Scantron, but now Daniel Reynolds is running for Buffalo Public Schools Board of Education. Though an unlikely candidate, Reynolds, unlike some of his higher profile opponents including former FBI special agent Bernie Tolbert, Marine Corps veteran Sergio Rodriguez, and former Buffalo Sabres president Larry Quinn, has a background in education that includes experience working in an actual Buffalo public school as a teacher of English to speakers of other languages. Each candidate needs to collect 1000 signatures to appear on the ballot. If you’d like to see Reynolds on the ballot you can sign his petition at Ashker’s Juice Bar on March 11. In a race that has been decided by less than 5% of registered voters in the past, could Reynolds rally the youth vote for an upset victory? Stranger things have happened. Check out his 12 point platform here, and his campaign videos, including one in which he unleashes his signature rap flow, below.
