I just read the the comments from the school board candidates and I must say that Ms. Travelstead seems to be on some sort of vendetta. I don't know the lady but being negative about the present board and superintendant is not the way to gain votes in this community. Like the old adage says, "If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all!"

The board had nothing to do with the $6 million error. That error was for money from the state for projects in the district. It was a solo error. Get your facts straight before you tell people to vote on misinformation.

She does have a vendetta. She is Laquita Wheeler's sister-in-law. Smart woman. No diplomacy.

Well if Laquita wasnt so busy trying to ruin peoples lives she wouldnt be in this mess. In any other place of employment she would be out on her booty.

why do we even have a school board, they are the ones that have screwed up our system. LaQuita's sister in law is the one running she is not going to run to help our kids parents or teachers she is running to get a seat in there to get Laquita her job back and fight with the school board, all this is becoming is for Politics, Brian McGonagill is another running just for the politics. not about the kids, lets just forget about having a school board, Mr. Singleton runs this district anyway everyone agrees with anything he says.. Laquita is jealous because Kelly was out with someone else having drinks while all administrative went to Ruidoso seems to me that alot of administrators having had their many affairs, so they see nothing wrong with what she did, Lets make all school board resign , Just let teachers teach and if theres problems let them go to the superintendent. In a few months all the school board memeber will be going to San Deigo including Gary P. if money is so tight then where is this money coming from to send off all the members on a pretty much VACATION!! Voting in Laquita's sister-in-law the school board is only gonna get worse,,,,, Doris Carrolton is probably the only one that asks questions she gives her own opinion she makes the decision, no one makes her change her mind,,,,,,,maybe we need to get an all women school board,,,,,,,, your wasting your time voting for school board members we're already screwed !!!!

Let's not forget, Gary takes the free trip to San Diego or wherever these trainings are, then doesn't report to the actual training. Just takes a free vacation to wherever they send him

You don't live in Carlsbad so what difference does it make who's on our school board? The current school board cares about kids and teachers and that's first and foremost.
