    Tom,
    May I ask,are you teacher? Can you please define what you mean by know education inside out.? You sound very bias as if you are an educator with a superiorty complex.

    I do agree with George Neely, though. He is one sharp candidate.

    I heard Frank Michael too and all he wants to do is cut funding, resources and teachers. He has little expirence (other than serving on a couple committees). You need someone who knows education inside and out, not someone who does it as a second, evening job.

    I sincerely hope Frank Michael is voted in. Heard him speak with all the other canidates.
    He was far better in ideas and solutions in solving the districts problems than the other candidates. A close second was George Neely.
