Just wondering if anyone knows anything about the young man, Michael Barnhart, who is running against Craig Peters for the school board. I am all for new faces on the board and have been VERY disappointed with Mr. Peters, but am wondering who the new face is.

Oscodamom,

Michael is the son of the Christine Beardsley's administrative assistant Sue Barnhart.

There are two seats open for the school board Peters is up for reelection and Anne Holley chose not to run.

Unless a strong write-in candidate emerges soon both Michael and Peters will be on the board in July.

Same old thing.... nobody wants to be up against the regime. There are people with lots of great ideas and common sense in this town but they just don't want to spend the time banging their head against a brick wall (I'm pretty sure that's what I would feel like as a school board member!). I value my time, my energies and my talent. I just wouldn't want to spend what precious time I have here on Earth listening to someone who believes themself the sun.

Guessing school board prez Neal Sweet figures he has the votes with the new board member, so he is proposing to take the board meetings off TV. This proposal to voted on at the next meeting.

Three questions: Why did he run for election?
Why did people vote for him?
Has he met your expectations?
dazed and confused

Please, Neal Sweet has a very tough job...he has a community that, for the most part, despises the superintendent. He was gifted with her 5 year contract...unheard of in real world. He has a staff of teachers and administrators who do not trust the board nor the superintendent. If you don't kiss her a**, then she makes it her mission to get rid of you. People there are afraid...for their jobs, for their reputation, and of losing everything they worked for...because of her. Even the students in the high school dislike her.
He has a board with no backbone...I know for a fact that Mr. Sweet has stood up to Beardsley...a lot of closed door sessions with her. But without the support of the board, the teachers and staff, what is one man to do.
Give him a break...if you don't like the job he has done, then I strongly suggest you run for the board yourself.
Then you can tell us how you would fix the problems.
