Can someone please explain to me how three of the four voting members of the athletic boosters are also on the school board? And two of them were appointed, not elected

Easy... Small town politics.... Same way shitty coaches get hired, ineffective teachers remain, 4 year olds get put into ISS and the super can be married to the owner of transportation

Corrupt small town dealings! That or else maybe its because no one else in that shiftless town actually wants to volunteer their time to help the kids. They would rather sit at home on their computer and bitch about others instead.

Can't anyone join the boosters? I think there a just a handful of people involved. But then again that would take work. Very few people want to give up their time on a regular basis to do anything for the kids these days. I guess it just so happens that very few people want to be on the school board too. What is stopping any of you from running for school board or joining the boosters? Oh that's right, it would take time and energy.

Actually, what keeps people from joining the boosters are the bitches who think they run it... No one in this town can stand any of them... Did you know they were spending $17000 of the booster money to build underground dugouts on the baseball field in town? How stupid is that???? That isn't even school property!

Yes of course...it must be jealousy as I'm sure everyone wants to be in their position of zero friends and even less brains

Went to a meeting once, was made to feel like my opinion didn't count and was wasting my time...it's a little cult the five of them have going on there, maybe if she spent as much time taking care of her husband as she does pretending she is important to the school, he wouldn't run around

If your attitude here reflects your attitude there, then you're right: your opinion doesn't count and you wasted everyone's time.

Now go back to watching Jerry Springer.

Who is on the school board? I bet they are not so high and mighty as you put on. Probably decent folks trying to do some good. Same with the boosters, no doubt just trying to afford these kids a decent sports experience.
