I heard today that Tina Dunbar is running for the BOE. Is this the same one that is Justice's assistant coach for the girls basketball team? Is this another way for Justice to get in and control the school system in Greenbrier County more than he already does?
yes

Yes it is the same person and it is sickening. Justice is controlling everything around here, especially Greenbrier East and the Board of Ed.
WELL-PUT

It is already bad enough...if she gets in there, then look out. She has been around him so long she is just like him. All the board members are in JJ's back pocket but one and that is the one JJ wants out and his assistant put in. BAD CHOICE! What is this world coming to when even the board members are more interested in being in JJ's back pocket rather than being interested in the good of our kids at school and their education. Sick, just flat out sick!

I have known Tina for a long time and always thought she was a good person. I am just disappointed that she, a GE alum and former basketball player, would buy in to all this. Of course she's doing it for JJ, she's an interior designer, why else the sudden interest in education?!
yes

Justice wants Hazel Reed out. That tells me she must be the only one worth two cents. If we want what is best for students we need to keep Hazel Reed on the board and Tina Dunbar far from it! I hope that all of these people that JJ has bought now find the money worth their reputations and the respect they had earned throughout their lives.

I agree! JJ wants control over all. Hazel is the only one on the board of education that won't be bought. I'm so disappointed that Tina has jumped right in the back pocket of JJ. I just hope she doesn't take Hazel's place. That would be a shame. Seems as if the BOE is more concerned about keeping their noses brown instead of worrying about what is best for our children in the school system. This whole situation has just turned into a big snowball! Getting more and more out of control as each day goes by. Please Raleigh County, take the arrogant self absorbed man back...he, along with the people who have made the choice to live in his back pocket disgust me. It seems nothing can be done about it. I wish the community would come together and get this man out of here. He can take his cronies with him. What a shame....

I do not think Hazel Reed is an advocate for Greenbrier County Schools, but that aside, who is hired as Superintendent will make a huge difference in Jim Justice's takeover of the company called "Greenbrier East".....I hope that it is someone who has opinions of their own on the entire county school system and not swayed by big monetary gifts to any one school.

Very good point, Amos. I do agree with you on whoever is hired as Superintendent will make a very huge difference in jj's takeover of the company called "Greenbrier East" (very well put btw). I too, along with so many others, hope that someone who can stand their ground, and not be swayed by big monetary gifts gets the job as Superintendent. Is that possible? I can only pray because so many people I never would have expected have actually started drinking the kool-aid. How sad.

Toothman voted for Justice as coach & Dunbar is his assistant coach. That means I'm voting for Baldwin & Reed.

Let's be honest. If JJ can get most of the board members to allow him to do as he pleases, then he will have a say in who is hired as superintendent. It is a sad state of affairs when one man controls so much. The schools should be about our kids, not what glory Justice believes he can get out playing God. I don't know Hazel Reed, but I do know she has stood up against JJ when no one else would, so that makes her better than the rest. Tina Dunbar is just another one of his puppets.

It wouldn't suprise me at all. Some people think he does everything out of the goodness of his heart. I have been close enough to know that that is not true. He has this issue of wanting to be seen as God. He wants people to look at him as if he has saved us, so the more power he can get, the more his ego is fed. We can't let it happen.
