Mr merida served 20 yrs in the military.He worked with all different kinds of people.He trained our american men and women to fight in combat.There for i think he meets the leadership qualitys you are asking for.

While I certainly appreciate Mr. Merida's service to our country (and combat training may well be useful for board meetings), I'm not seeing a connection to education or finance that I'm looking for. Of course, Mr. Smith does not seem to have any of these qualities either. I was hoping someone could give me a legitimite reason to vote for one of these men. I'm not in the habit or practice of voting the lesser of two evils.

Perhaps what is needed is a write-in cadidate. Can anyone think of someone we could draft? We need someone with a strong financial, educational, or business background. Also, it would be nice if they had no political agenda, no revenge motives, and no preconceived (or pre-paid) idea of who the next superintendent would be.

Well Charles did work for the School System, He has seen first hand what most people don't. That is better than making sure Hossies frends gets jobs,and the sup gets a clothing raise. I bet he (Hossies) is telling that he is for fireing the Sup again what a joke. Now back to "Charles" Not only his experance with Military, and the School System, Name some somone on the Board of Education who has the cryteria you are asking for? Heck the Superintendent we have now has been fired before. With due respect i hope i have give you some light on the subject Thanks for your time. It only takes one bad apple to spoil the whole bunch how meany bad apples do we have? I can name a bunch I have 24 years with the School System and worked for 5 Superintendent's if you'all only new what i have seen it would make you sick sometimes i wish i could run for School Board someday i would be like Charles there would be no wool pulled over my eye's!!!!!!!!!!

well i will tell you my opinion...i had my mind made up to vote for merida,but the more i get on topix the more my mind changes again.i am sure that most people that are on here braging on merida an degradeing smith are family members of merida.an if the family members are like this then merida is most likely like this also.that dont mean that i will vote for smith either.it just makes me reconsider my thoughts a little more....maybe there should be a write in.

To the person above me:

It's not "click" unless you're implying that you're inside the computer mouse, it's "clique" as in the group of people to which you're referring.

It's not bothering me, I'm sure everyone else on topix is as tired of you as I am. It's one thing to support someone, but you run around EVERY thread with your other family members and harass anyone who doesn't see Charles Merida as a God. Apart from that, one of you idiots are ALWAYS making new threads about this.

Let's keep it to ONE thread, PLEASE.

Let's cut to the chase. Neither of these men are going to meet my standards for a school board member. Neither understand education (nor do I, for that matter), neither have real financial or business experience. However, it is what it is and they are our choices. So how do we decide? Here's they way it works. The school system is Knox County's largest employer by far. Therefore, the superintendent is a powerfull man who also gets to retire with a large pension. A lot of ambitious people would like to have that position. So, how do you get it? Around here, you make deals. You get rid of board members and you load up the board with your supporters. When you have enough, you fire the current super and your members vote you in. So really, although you may not know it, when you vote in a board member, you're actually voting for a superintendent. Let's do it this way. If Mr.Smith and Mr. Merida would just tell us who's backing them (i.e. who they will vote for superintendent) then we choose that way.

How about folks? Wanna come clean?

I am sorry if i have afended you i have a opin if i want to if you were so concerned about what is going on then you would not be so angry about what other people has to say. Have you ever heard of "Freedom of Speach"

Not angry at all, just annoyed. I'm really not trying to be mean by saying this, but I don't know what the hell you just said to me. I got the "Freedom of Speech" part, and by all means you have a right to voice your opinion. It doesn't bother me at all that you don't like Hoss and you're Pro-Merida, it does bother me that every other day a member of your circus is making a new thread about the issue.

The only thing I suggested was that we could keep this in one thread. I honestly don't think that is too unreasonable of a request, do you?
