Billie Finn is head and shoulders above Ed Wilson in finance knowledge. Several of her fellow board members have praised her ability during these financel discussions and the need for her to continue serving on the board. Mr Ochoa was on the board and voted for a 0 tax increase two years ago. This only added to the problem we are in today. No tax increase when we had a 47 million dollar bond issue to deal with. That was a political move and not in the best interest of Waynesboro School District. We need board members who work for the children and the tax payers, not special interest groups like the teachers who want is all at any cost to the tax payer. Teachers at boawrd meeting have stated " raise the taxes so we can have a raise". Mr Ochoa and Mr Ed Wilson would do excatly that.

The people in the North area finally have two promising candidates for the school board. Emily Hartsock and Tammy Black. I was impressed with them at the forum.
Ed Wilson is afraid of Lemley, and Mr. Crutchfield thinks he knows everything.He criticizes the public school system and sends his kids to private school, knowing his decisions will not affect his kids!

View...Wilson is afraid of no one. I also atteneded the forum and was not impressed. Hartsock & Black seemed to me to be all for backing union beliefs. We need people that are able to shoulder unpopular decisions that need to made concerning the budget, not people that will just go along. Keep in mind it is the admin. that gives the board information on budget, what programs can be consolidated/cut and staff cuts. The board makes decisions based on admins. advice.

I miss - spoke on my comments. Its DAVE WILSON , not Ed. I have always had a problem with names and getting older has not helped. In my opinion Ed Wilson does a good job on the school board. Sorry about the mix up on the name.

This is nothing more than their 15 minutes of fame!

We have members of our school board who don’t believe that it is a conflict of interest when one board member is employed by the other, or in a romantic relationship with another board member, as well as, certain board members believing that it’s in the best interest of the community to make “Busting the Teachers Union” a goal.

Mr Wilson is indeed the puppet of the Lemley School Board Mafia.

There is a candidate,( Lemley puppett)who is running for an upcoming seat who has used their mother's address to file, but resides in a different district.

This speaks directly to this person's lack of honesty and integrity!

Small town games hurt the taxpayers more then helping them!

Sad!

This speak directly to the integrity
