BOE meeting was a slap in the face of advisory comittees

This meeting was a slap in the face to all of the facts developed from the bond advisory committees even if no others were developed.

Our school system appears to truly be run by people who have some selfish interests.

That meeting after the meeting last week may have been the groundwork for what happened last night. It also seems, although Cadle Cooper denies it, that the haste to get the vote on any bond for the end of this month is to be in place before he and that other fella sign up to run again.

That discussion of what to put in just any bond to get a bond out there shows the depth of study Cooper, Dark and Ms. McManus have made of the issue.

County Commissioners have gone on record as not supporting that high school on Jack Bennett Road or for a special election but we'll see. Never discount the pressure that the political leaders of the county, one of whom was present last night and was also in that "secret" meeting last week, can bring on those who are making running for office or staying in office a profession.

Cadle told me the reason for that meeting after the meeting last week was to allow them to eat because they started at 6:30 in closed session and he was hungry! Most people had dinner before they got there and many is the evening I have grabbed a quick sandwich before going to an evening meeting. Why are we obligated to feed them anyhow? They make enough money to feed themselves and I look at that as another waste of our money!

Enough for now, but our school system appears to truly be run by people who have some selfish interests and the commissioners hopefully can see through this ill conceived notion at this time.

I agree that a bond is needed but they sealed its fate last night as far as I am concerned!
