I was attending the chicken festival thurs. and I seen Mr. Begley was running for Laurel County School Board. Mr. Mark Begley owes at least two local companies thousands of dollars.He says he can not afford to pay. Yet he can afford to run for a public office. Seems to me this is not the kind of man we want in office.He has material leins on his property for these bills.Do we need someone with no ethical morals over seeing the education and spending pratices of our kids education and future. P.S. I am not politicaly motivated at all. Just informing.

Marshall's son has never paid any school taxes in his life.

I think he'd be the last person to even run for school board.

Don't you have to pay your taxes to even qualify to run?

it would kinda scare me to elect someone to the school board that sets the school taxes when he don't care anything about paying school taxes

how could he possibly care how high they get?

why would he care how high they are now?

how can he relate to those of us who pay the school taxes?

who is Marshall Begley anyway?

No I think if he is a true christian he would pay his bills before he would spend money paying for a campaign for any thing. There is a lot of people who go to church just to be seen. I pay my bills first and play second and thats how it should be.

Yes he is. I am not saying that he is all bad but he should be responsible and honest and pay for what he gets.

I hope that who ever get in at the school board will focus on the needs of our children in this county. Our schools need people that care for the children. Our children are truly suffering in this county I know that there are a lot of good teacher and board members that trying to help our children to become successful adults, but there are so many that still fall through the cracks. I hope everyone students, parents, teachers, board members and government work toward those goals so that our county along with our state scores will improve across all subjects. It is very important to vote for individuals that are concern for the children. When looking for a candidate focus on the part of them that is important to the cause and not things that is just trashy gossip.

I think "This Too" is referring to the school tax bill they actually DO send out which is included on your property tax bill.
Not Honest

We need to vote for a person with integrity and honesty. Mark Begley is not the person needed to represent the 4th District. I could go on and on about him negatively but I will not. It appears that the other posts have him pegged pretty good. I never have cared for anyone that looks you in the eye and tells you whatever benefits him at that time and then turns around and tells someone else something else. He is not a person of good morales at all.

If Mark Begley is so honest why did he get into trouble for takeing materials to build onto the church. It says alot about the person and the church. Seems kinda shady to me...

I would vote for the devil before I would vote for Lola Reed. She has done nothing for the schools she represents. Her own grandkids were too good to go to Colony. They have great test scores so what was the reason if the facility is in bad shape why not do something to help. The only reason why she lowered the tax is because it is election time. Get real, as usual she thinks she is smarter than everyone else. My neighbor has up an Evans sign, you can bet my family and I will be finding out more about him. We need someone to stand up for the schools they are supposed to represent.

I am a member of that Church, and quite frankly I have no idea what you are talking of here. Your post really conveys the ideas of most of the backbiting, that goes on topix. If there is something shady about our Church then go ahead and say what's on your mind, I believe I have a right to know, but then again you probably no nothing at all! Just some busy body getting on topix with no substance to back your so called "truths".

Mr. Evans is the choice to serve as Board of Education member. Marshall Begley's son was suckered into running to keep Reed from getting beat. Don't be fooled.
She did not lower any school tax. The fifty cents you save on your property tax bill is taken by the hundred dollars you pay on your cell phone bill.
