Is the Allen Strong that is running for school board any kin to Bear Strong? The one that's in trouble for vote buying.

What makes you say that? I was trying to figure out who to vote for and I don't know him or that Albert Little. Is he related to Bear Strong? I think I might want to stay away from that bunch if he is.

for neither one of them. Allen is related to bear and Albert has nieces and relatives working in the breathitt school system already and word is his nephew tim noble has his name in for superintendent. I dont think the state allows you to hold school board member if you have nieces and nephews already working.

So he is related by marriage to a few people that work in the school system. Who doesn't?????

Albert is an upstanding and honorable person who cares about the children and will do what he can to help all the children of the county.

Are you serious? Are they first cousins really? I guess I will vote for Albert Little. After reading the comments so far. As for having family in the school system, I think everyone in the county has someone in the system don't they?

You can't help nor control who you are kin tto. Let's base our vote on who someone is kin to. Show your ignorance! Everyone has family members they're not proud of. Allen would help all the people of Breathitt County. Albert is out to better HIS family! Get nieces and nephews pie jobs!!

When someone you are close kin to is a convicted felon and you are running for his seat people have every right to question it. Does this Allen have kids in school, has he been active in any way in the school system? I guess you can say I am checking the character of the candidates and when you get on here, you get the good, bad, and ugly about people and then watch to see how much of it is true. What other than "he'll work for the kids" is Allen's background. Apparently, Albert Little has a good one. Preacher since 20 is a very good background. As for wanting to help his family, don't they all?

Well, I'm not voting for Allen Strong. I bet Bear told him all the tricks of the trade and probably still is. Yes, they are first cousins and they don't love far from each other either. You can bet Bear has something to do will Allen running. Bear is one of the biggest crooks in the country.
agree

1. Allen comes from one of the best "Strong" families in Whick. He is the son of old man Dave Strong and Cora Moore Strong. Old man Dave ran a sawmill in the community for years and helped people build homes, gave them jobs and did whatever he could for people all over the county. Cora was a teacher. Allen worked for Bell South telephone company for 30 plus years. He is not a crook nor from a dead beat family. He is a good person that would help anyone he could anyway he could.

2. Allen does have a grandchild in Kindegarten and a niece in 3rd grade at MRC. He does have concerns about the schools and their education as well as all the children.

Bear Strong has been one of the best school board members we've had. Unlike SOME he helped people outside of his family get jobs. If truth be known you people on here bad mouthing him he helped the most! Shame on you! Ungrateful! Long live the Strongs! Thank you, Bear!
