Wendy Lundsgaard, left, and Todd Madson, middle, candidates for Orono School Board, spoke with Patrick Dupont outside his home in Long Lake on Thursday.

Todd Madson takes note of the signs in his neighbors' yards when he goes campaigning door-to-door in Orono.

The father of two and first-time school board candidate gravitates toward homes that display support for a conservative slate campaigning on policy proposals diametrically opposed to his.

Those residents typically want to talk about issues that have nabbed headlines over the last two years, such as critical race theory and inclusivity for LGBTQ people.
