Wish we had more folks like him cause he watches the money. So much money is wasted if it wasnt for pete. My school taxes are too high now going to a failed school system bloated with overpaid shirts and ties not to mention how the teachers union is the biggest problem. This county will never pass another school bond. Any parent who sends their kids to public school should be charged with child abuse.

I like Pete, but let's face it, Pete has been re-elected over and over under false pretenses. Why?

Because no matter what Pete's against, there's 4 other people who constantly vote against him. Pete has rarely been able to gather any forces around him. So year after year, he's voted down and the rest of the bastards get they way.

The problem here is NOT Pete. It's the fact that the stupid voters never give Pete any help by voting for OTHERS that could help him!

I LOVE Pete Thaw!!!! He is the only member of the Kanawha County Board of Education that truly cares about the students and will help families and their children when they have issues with the schools.

Pete Thaw has no idea what a library does for the students of Kanawha County. Maybe he should visit one. His comment that 'only homeless people visit the library' is totally untrue and a flat out lie.

I like Pete but he really does not have a clue on his latest remark re the library. But I will tell you that you can call him about situations in the school and he does launch an investigation. I would not want to be a guilty party and have him after me.

Thaw used to go on talk radio and rail against (of all things) poor people using the library....accusing them of using it for porn more than learning. Hath protest too much I say! He is also a book banner. He was against teaching two Pat Conroy books at Nitro High School. F&@k him.

How can anyone say they love Pete Thaw? He doesn't really seem to care about the students when he's getting the library system a budget cut. Only homeless people use the library? Are you kidding me. Kids from Kanawha County schools use the library every single day whether it be to work on homework or check out books or references for a school project. Yeah Pete Thaw all those kids that go to your schools must be homeless right? I mean they are using the library.

The library was stealing from the children of Kanawha County. 3 million dollars a year. Kanawha and 5 other counties were the only ones required to pay extra money. How is that fair?

The library HAS become a day care center for bums and neer do wells to hang out, stink up the place, and play on computers.

Pete Thaw is the only person on the board that stands up for the taxpayers of the county.

$40 million for a new homeless shelter.. I mean library? All books are going electronic, so you don't have to build a palace for a simple library. Like all government, this has gotten too big when it could easily be downsized. Much library information is now on line with downloadable books etc. Wal-Mart spends $4 million for a superstore which is 10 times bigger than the proposed library, so why are we spending $40 million? The more money the taxpayers give to the school and library, the more they want. And what's the result? Our system spends more money for less results than just about anyone, and we're still at the bottom of the education ladder. That should tell you something
