Who do you think will win the school board election, Bridgette Crawford or Chad Drake? I have known Bridgette for years and have no complaints with her, but maybe it is time we have some new people to take care of the problems at our schools. I think the Estes woman will win also.

It is time we get to the problems and correct them. Getting rid of one principal did not solve the problems our high school faces. I need some input so I can vote. I wish I could have attended the forum last night. Can anyone give me some insights?

Bridgette was on the board when the schools went bad. sitting on the board for another term wearing jeans and tshirt nodding your head yes to flynn is not what we need.

Estes is a smart professional woman with an MBA from WKU. Smart enough not to be a push over for Flynn.

Estes isn't running against Crawford is she? I thought Drake was running against Crawford and Summers against Estes. I agree, time for a change and we need some people that are not afraid to speak for the people.

Estes is running district 4 against Summers and Doss. But please be informed that Estes is running for the kids of Simpson County and not against Doss and Summers.

The question is when whomever gets voted in ARE they still have the guts to take a stand for our kids, or will they succumb to the political life that makes them YES men and women!! Do they have guts and believe in themselves and there values to remain individuals for there values and morals.

Maybe I am wrong but I thought she and her husband opened the finance company on the corner where the Personnel place is now. I am tired of electing officials to handle my tax payers money when they cannot handle their own.

Estes has a lot of "known" people backing her. I don't personally know her and she is not in my district. I am tired of voting for people that can not control their own money and home life. Didn't Crawford's take up bankrupt? I know their home was in the paper not long ago. If someone can't manage their home, they don't need to be managing someone elses.

I think Estes works at Franklin Bank and they want to control everything in town. Getting someone on the school board will just about do it.

No the Crawfords didn't go bankrupt. And what would that have to do with what's best for the kids? She has been on the board for 12 years and has done a GREAT job..Vote Crawford you can't go wrong!

I just don't get this argument. Franklin Bank sponsors about everything in this town with money. They have probably given away tens of thousands of dollars. They also want what everybody else wants-good and decent schools. This is good for business because good schools attract good people to a community and good jobs.

well, I see u do not get it so let me help! Call and see how much they on interest on a savings account and then ask how much they charge on a loan. I Would guess they will pay about 1 percent or less on a savings acct but 6 or 7 percent to borrow it back. I may be wrong. Check it out

I have heard that she misses a lot of school board meetings and also heard that when there are ballgames on the same nights as school board meetings that she watches the ballgames rather than going to the school board meetings. I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW HOW TO FIND OUT IF THIS IS TRUE, if it is, it doesn't sound to me like she is doing the job she was elected to do. I have also heard that she votes for any thing that Sup J Flinn wants!
I have been very concerned about our schools since the state removed the high school principal last year. Why didn't the school board see that coming and do something to prevent that embarassment to our community? Why was the Superintent Flinn not held responsible? I was told that it takes several years of bad test scores before the state steps into take over a school. I hate it most for all of the children who attend our schools, they deserve better!! Does anyone know when we are going to hear how the Simpson County students scored last Spring?? If things are not significantly better, I think the School Board and Superintent should be removed!! I will never believe that Mr Vejr was the sole problem last year, however he was the only one relieved of his duties. Perhaps it is the Superintendent and school board who should have received the poor scores and Failing grades!

You are right about Vejr...it wasn't soley his fault! My son was in Beta through FSMS. 8the grade, one if his math teachers took maternity leave for most of the year, and they had a sub. She taught absolutely NOTHING! When he got to the HS, he was lost (and still is) in math. All of his grades fell during the MS years. He is now junior and his math is still terrible, thanks to the FSMS. It's not just the HS. Ours started in the MS. As far as Crawford, her house was in foreclosure. Don't know if they lost it or not. I haven't really heard anything about Estes promises. They are all going to do what Flynn wants until we get him out of there. Did you all know that we are paying for him to go back to school to get his P.H.D.? That way, when he does get fired, he will have a wonderful education (thanks to Franklin), and will be able to get a job anywhere....check it out, it's true!

That is true about Flynn and the employees make more money than all of our elected official's put together. It's public record. Also, while everyone else's budgets have been getting cut they have had raises.

Look at the board minutes and see how many she has missed. Very few.
