I made a copy of this article. A guy came over to do some work (I never met this man in my life). I told him to read the article and tell me what he thought. He said they should have been looking at the QUALIFICATIONS of that person and not RACE. When you read this article it makes you think who on the board is representing who. Are some there elected to represent white,black,hispanic,asian,ind ian? Then you got those who represent rich,poor,methodist,baptist,ca tholic etc. If you can't represent all you have no place in the public eye. The comments by King & Skinner was out of order, but it let us all know where they stand. In cases like this it would have been better to vote "ABSENT" BUT THIS IS GILMER AT IT'S BEST.

What is wrong Gilmer? None of you have anything to say about your GOOD SCHOOL SYSTEM? AND HOW IT HAS BEEN RUN FOR 80 years. I love to see how SCARED people there are. I have saw this all my life, they will back up like a CRAWFISH when it comes down to telling the TRUTH about the WHOLE COUNTY AND AREA WHEN IT COMES DOWN TO HOW SEGREGATED THE AREA STILL IS.
