I for one fully intend to vote against this proposal.
I have been pleased to read the published letters to the editor from Roger Blakely and Della Newman. I do not detect any factual errors or wrong evaluations in their letters. I have waited in vain to read information in The Marshall Democrat-News from the other side. If this were a stand-up debate, and I were a debate judge, Blakely and Newman would have all the winning points and the other side would have zero. I think it is safe to say if the other side had factual and persuasive information, then they would be sending it to the MDN for publication. In its absence, I am concluding they do not have it and this proposal is merely another attempt by a largely low-grade public school board to grasp for more money from us and power that they do not need. I evaluate the members who were in those offices to be low grade performers and also intend to vote for their competitors on each and every ballot.
