Is anyone going to the upcoming meet the candidate and levy info meetings?
Nope

There really isn't much reason to go. They all will make a bunch of promises that will be almost impossible to keep.

Every candidate means well, but there is only so much they can do. I believe most new members find it is a very different job than what they perceive going into it.

OK, all negative people out there: here's your chance to make a difference. Are you going to? no, you'll just sit on your arses and complain about people on this website, saying how administrations and councils are running this town into the ground. What have you done to improve it? Oh, I guess you don't need to...just keep sitting on your fat bottoms and do nothing...that's worked so far!

Do you really think going to a meeting where the questions will be screened is going to actally showcase how the candidates really feel about issues? Nothing controversial will be allowed to be discussed. This community is small enough that most people already know the people running.

Look at Mrs. harshbarger. She was one of the most outspoken members of the community about school issues before she got on the school board. When she was confronted by someone about decisions that she was voting for after she got on the board. Her response was that she was wearing a very different hat now and she had to vote certain ways because there are certain protocals that have to be followed. And that is true. A board member can't just up and do something even if that is what the majority of the people want. There are rules and state guidelines that need to be followed.

I am not knocking the people who want to run. My point is there is only so much ANYONE can do that is on the school board. There are rules that have to be followed, I don't care who is on the board. No one can go in their with there "guns drawn" so to speak and think they are going to incorportate a huge amount of change. It can't be done.

My other point is: People who are not on the board can say the board needs to do this or that, but the simple facts are they can't do what everyone wants.

They are not going to let question be asked that are controversial. They will questions that are cut and dried. I wouldn't want to be a school board member it is a thankless job. I am not knocking them, Sad Community, no matter what you are trying to imply. I am just saying the community shouldn't expect miracles from a board member, if they do, they are going to be disappointed.
Go away

Bob Sanford should just go away, he has done nothing for the School and is a waste of space. It is time we have some younger people on the board that are wanting to make a difference.
ok yall

Mr. Sanford is the only one on the board who has knowledge of what works and what doesn't based on his experiences. Don't let his being quiet fool you. He is very wise. He has taken this job on with little thanks for our community for many years. And for what! A nasty comment from go away. I am guessing it is a future candidate who wants his job.
Agreed

Yes, Bob is a very sensible person with a logical mind. Dee Dee has no clue what is going on and Jim Cox blindly follows her because he is a weak leader. Bob is needed to bring common sense to the board.
