I am unhappy with the current school board. So I am voting against those who closed the country schools. They havent shown where they have saved any money. Just gave them more money to give to the administrators. Hylton said 4 administrators made over $100,000 a yr.??? In this county??/ How do we afford it? Off the backs of the kids' best interests!!! But Hylton doesn't need to be back on either. His daughter is a principal. conflict of interest!!

They also haven't proven that they have saved any
money by outsourcing the food service either. In fact, not only do they pay for their catering services, they also purchase and maintain all the equipment.

Carl Hylton is just a crazy old man. Everything he says he is against now, is the same issues he voted yes to when he was on the board.

Current board members told Hodges that the district could not afford nor need to pay the salary of the new Assistant Superintendent @ a Doctorate level. Hodges threw a fit and said he was going to hire her anyway. Then, the board turned around and voted Hodges a 5 year contract. There is strength in numbers folks and until members are elected that will actually vote NO and stand up to ADM, nothing will change. Right now, there are board members that dislike what is going on but they are outnumbered. There are 5 doctorate degreed people out there on the hill. Do the math.

I am unable to vote because no one is running in my district but if you people vote for Spurlock, Willis and Sturgeon and with Griffin already in, you have your majority vote and Hodges will no longer get away with the crap he has been getting away with..just sayn. I worry a little about Willis tho, he seems like a wildcard to me. Both he and Hylton were saying on Channel 3 about how they they think there are too many 100,000.00 employees on the hill but at the Senior Citizens breakfast both of them backed down and didn't even mention that fact after they noticed that Hodges was in the audience. Willis seems like a good guy and wants whats best for the community, but I see him as a wildcard, but I think I would take a chance on him because he's better than Burchett or Hylton at this point.

I haven't heard a lot from Spurlock but people tell me that they are sure he will do a good job and Sturgeon hasn't backed down from anything she has said. She has said from the very beginning that she wants the job to help protect the students, teachers, and support staff and I believe she will do just that. I don't know any of these people personally but I have been keeping track of their campaigns because I care deeply for the school corporation. I couldn't run myself because no one is running in my district, but I am considering it the next time.

Ron Spurlock will be getting my vote. He is 100% for the people of Fayette County. He will not be BULLIED by Dr. Hodges as Leslie Jacobs is! He will not stand for outsourcing of jobs. He will not lie and twist the truth like Jacobs does. Here is one example of one lie of many that Jacobs tells; she stated that not the best person for a job is from Fayette County. That they hired a person from Fayette County and that person made a huge mistake which cost the School Corporation a lot of money. That person was let go and they were from Fayette County. Here’s the truth, that person was hired and brought in from another county, but bought a house when they were hired by the corporation in Fayette County. There are plenty of lies that Jacobs tells, and I cannot list them all. Ron Spurlock is the only choice to make to get the school system back under control and back to the people of Fayette County.

Griffin can barely write his own name. He needs voted out for sure. He has no business in there and the conversations are way over his head. He goes to Hylton for advise about everything.

Well, sir, depending on what district you are in you can only vote for Spurlock OR Sturgeon and Willis. But I agree they are all good choices.

Local school boards' and administrators' hands are increasingly tied by state legislation and the DOE. No matter our party affiliation, when we go to the polls, we MUST vote OUT tony bennett and VOTE IN GLENDA RITZ as Superintendent of Public Education. Really. Please don't vote a straight Republican ticket on this one!!

I urge all of you to vote these people out. We need changes in people and not go along with everything Hodges wants. I will vote for Spurlock and others in these districts vote for Willis and Sturgeon. I know Sturgeon. She will stand up the parents, students, teachers.
