School board needs a change

Dear editor,

I attended two precinct “Meet the Candidates” meetings and was very disappointed. After a brief qualification statement by the school board candidates, we were told we would have a “one-on-one” meeting for questions and answers. What were the rest of us to do while waiting for our turn? The audience was not happy with that. We wanted to hear all the questions and all the answers. This tactic was simply crowd control.

Nevertheless, I was very impressed with Sandra Mountcastle and her administrative experience. She is willing to listen and address our concerns, which is more than the existing board does. I was also impressed with Larry Smith. He had done a lot of research.

The incumbents only wanted to talk you down, not give a forthright answer to your concern. The board’s concern seems to be only with the board.

We need a change!

-Dixie Curtis,

Mr. Prier, I sadly do not get you or your other Eagle Forum friends on this issue. I think you are downright mean and disrespectful of the current board's work. I can only speculate that you would also vote (like your Eagle Forum member on the school board) to make "hungry" kids have a separate line and separate reduced lunch/breakfast tickets (as you want to shame them and their parents)....this coming from a man who a few years ago could not name one teacher or even what grade his kids were in elementary school, and had not volunteered or attended one Parent-Teacher conference.

Your wild accusations remind me of Senator Joe McCarthy and what the esteemed journalist Ed Murrow said of McCarthy

" We must remember always that accusation is not proof and that conviction depends upon evidence and due process of law. We will not walk in fear, one of another. We will not be driven by fear into an age of unreason"
