Excellent! Now to get rid of the other BOE members. It's better to have him worrying about guard rail and paving roads than ANYTHING to do with our kids!

So what is his experience besides being from a political family? Raising cows and flowers? Ruining a school district? Speak up!

You left out being a self righteous a$$ that hides behind religion. He thinks he is a big fish in a small pond. He comes off as a total jerk and most people don't have much respect for him.

Uuumm helllo!!!!!!! He has been part of this fiasco called a BOE. They have embarrassed this school district. Let's get rid of all of them. Who is up for renewal this year, who has what left? And do you know of anyone running for an empty seat?

One down one to go, now who will be Bennett's puppet? He is sleeping with osborne's daughter so he controls him. Hope the next election the people of chesapeake can see that Bennett is wrong for our kids and our schools.

Can someone explain something to me. Bill Pratt is, was, one of the board members spending taxpayers' money to investigate the superintendent and his creation of a brochure. Waste of time, waste of money. So....he helps stir up all of this and then jumps ship first chance he gets. What a man! His picture in the paper....great big grin. Of course he is grinning. He is leaving the rest of the board holding the bag. Great job Bill! His reward?.....the position of county commissioner! Way to go Republicans. Way to pick the best person for the job. Just goes to show it's not how good of a job you do that matters, but rather who you are buddies with. You da man Bill!!

Sounds like a buddy of the scoundrel superintendent. The board should find out how much the super has wasted and make it public. He needs to go!

MAYBE.....just MAYBE if our school board had spent more time tracking $ and dealing with issues that REALLY are related to our childrens education and school experience INSTEAD of focasing an ENTIRE year on getting rid of TWO people THEY deem to be a problem, then MAYBE our school system wouldn't be in the shape it's in! MAYBE our children would be using the football field and track! MAYBE they wouldn't be talking about cutting sporting programs...and MAYBE we wouldn't be losing teachers and personnel at the end of the year. And before I'm
blastlegit being on a side, let me just say that I definitely think the one gone and the one they are trying to get rid of now should have already been shown the door! But get real! There is SO much dead weight left! When you have someone making 90,000 dollars to sit on their rear end in a cubby at one of the schools... YOU
HAVE A REAL ISSUE!! Quite frankly, I am as it says... SICK OF IT ALL!

I'm glad Pratt doesn't live in Ashland. He would want to doze Central Park for a strip mall. LOL

I voted for him but wish I hadn't now. At the meetings. He puts his phone on speaker to Jason Stephens so he can hear everything. Then Jason will text Pratt and tell him what to do. So sad

Just my opinion, but I think he's two-faced.
