PEOPLE! Do not blindly elect someone. Get their views on everything! The path of current school board (excluding Ms. Gray) seems to be to destroy public education in favor of private (or choice) schools. Of course, then there won't be a school board for these people to be on...

Fred is a good guy and should do a good job as long as he remains an independent voice and doesn't get sucked into Davis Nelson's board clique.

Fred, though I find you a likable person, as you will recall from our several conversations, I approached you with my concerns over a well entrenched organized public corruption scheme against the interest of our neighbors and citizens in this County. And, as I recall, I asked you to so inform your fellow grand jurors of the matter and arrange for me to appear and present my evidence. After the grand jury adjourned, I inquired of you about the matter, and you informed me that “you forgot”. Your “forgetfulness” has deprived every one of your neighbors in the County of their “right to know” whether there is any evidence or not, and it brings into question your ability to comply with an official oath of office. Choices and consequences is not a “game” in real everyday life, is it? I’m certain that your “forgetfulness” was a welcome relief to the Joe Campbell, Shep Howell, Clark Millsap, Boyd Pettit, and a few others. In the event that you are elected to the position which you seek, should you encounter a situation which might seem questionable or outright illegal, will you possess the intestinal fortitude, and the presence of both mind and character, to confront such conduct on behalf of your constituents, as the current member does, or will you plead ignorance or demonstrate a lack of care, as other Board members have, and just let it pass?
