School Board Recall, Where
Do I Sign?
By Karen Owings
March 29, 2007
While I appreciate the service of each school board member, I
was appalled at the decision last night to terminate the superintendent.
This causes me to question whether we have the right people
on the school board and question the motives of certain school
board members. I would encourage those members to review a tape
of last night's meeting and consider doing the right thing.
I would like to thank Russell Thomas and Carl Webb for their
continued commitment and professionalism, the other board members
should have followed your example.
I, for one, am ready to sign a recall petition for those members
who did not demonstrate the integrity and professionalism that
this community deserves from it's school board.
