Mad Tax Payer

I don't understand what the Board of Ed was thinking... This is ridiculous. The teachers don't get raises. The employees and the kids get the short end of the stick and the The Armstrong's come out ahead.. As a tax payer I want the vote for this contract retracted. The PUBLIC should have been notified that this was going to be voted on.. We pay the taxes that pay The Armstrong's and I want some say in what it's spent for.

Where did you hear this? I work two jobs and have 3 kids in school. I go to work every day and barely make it from month to month. The board raised our taxes. Will they raise them again to pay for his education. We all need to ban together and go to the board office and protest this or let us vote on this.

#2 read all this disgust, dirty, rotten, vote the BOE made at the last meeting on the lazar online paper..it is true they voted to pay for his PhD..some people don't know when he gets this degree he will get more money,sixty thousand dollars for a new SUV that's right a new one, because the one he was driving was ten years old! what are you driving??I don't have a new car I have payments to make on the one I have now, and guess what I to am a tax payer. Just read the Lazar it makes me so mad I can even write all of this shit.omg 99% of the working people in this county is only making min.wage. something has to be done. sorry if I made mistakes in this comment I am so mad.

i believe this is against the ethics,this would be considered a gift ,the people are tired of all the under handed mess,why does he need a degree? so he can get it and go to uk or some other big college and get more money that the poor people in louisa paid for,some one needs to have a investigation into the legal aspect and see what is the correct way ,for a old man just to keep draining the poor pieople who can barley send thier children to school i would be ashamed to face the community when he and she have more than enough to live on ,that what you call greed the board is a poor excuse for letting this happen.

I agree with you bill there has to be some conflict of interest in him accepting this money for a personal gain. I too wish we could get these Board member investigated; before anyone chimes in yes I did vote but See got in anyways. These people are so blatant in these horrible decisions. I also ask where is the UniServ. director Tim Southern? He was at the meeting so why didn't he speak up and tell the Board that all that money could be spent on the poorer school employees such as cooks, bus monitors, and janitors. I guess he is in it with them all of them as thick as thieves.

Why are you people so simple minded? Mr Armstrong has given so to this community. I think it is only right that the community show its appreciation for all that he has done.

I do hope you are just trying to be funny. He does not deserve to steal money from children so his old a@@ can go back to school. He has more than enough money, let him pay for it himself like the rest of us.

Armstrong doesn't even have children to raise, he makes a very adequate salary to pay for his own education. Do we reimburse our teachers for their continuing education tuition? Until we do, we should not be paying for his.
