In the City vote for Cole and Grabeel. Do not vote for Jeff Perkins. He's screwed up our system enough. We are finally getting back on the right track. Please don't

Looking more at county district 1. Someone told me that Minton has no kids in our school system and lives in Florida and only comes up for the meetings. Sounds odd for a job that only pays ..$50.00 a meeting or something like that. Dont know anything about Daniels who is running against her.

Im honored to recommend and ask you to vote for Brandy Daniels. As her pastor and friend, I cannot speak highly enoigh about her character, integrity and overall love for children. She is married to Dr. Kent Daniels and is the mother of 4 beautiful children. She is not only entering this election as a representative of her family but for your family as well. Take the time to talk to her and you will quickly find out that she is a concerned parent first and a politician last... That's why she should be elected to the Pulaski County School Board! Thank you in advance for your vote!

You don't know her anymore than i do, besides you are not much of a pastor to even be on topix. Just because people do good works , doesn't make them good. I don't even know her but making a statement defending someone's character and stuff like that, unless you live with them or are kin to her, you have no right and really don't know someone unless you see them in reality at home away from church and work. Geez being a pastor you should know this.

Doctors have more money than most people an they make decisions that rich people would prefer not what is best for the average person.

Why do people in this country resent people who have money? I will admit that I am lower middle class but I admire people who get educated, better themselves, make large salaries and live a comfortable life. Good fro them. I do not go around living in a pity party. I wish that I had been that goal oriented in my younger days. Why do people resent Romney for his wealth? Strange.
We should vote for who we think is better qualified for the job, not if they have too much money by our standards.
come on

I think taking a physician or a highly educated person's opinion on higher education would be very intelligent. They are most defintely real people and their opinions are based upon being educated. All of us are average people, what seperates us is knowledge and making it easier for our students to acquire knowledge in an quality atmosphere needs to be paramount. Electing failed admistrators is not the way to go, they bring an agenda of hostility and ax grinding with them on most occasions and usually lose the next election because they spend their whole term trying to settle old grudges. Vote for people who care about children and it will all work out. Education first and don't forget to Vote Romney!!!

Reply to Dude....
I am kin to her because she is my sister and Christ and she is also part of my church family. I think I can speak for her character as much as anybody can being her pastor. God bless you!

I have the same right to be on here as anybody else does and it has nothing to do with offerings but it does have something to do with having the freedom to share my opinion just like you do. As far as church and state seperation goes, I'm a firm believer in that because the state has no right to tell a church or pastor what they can and can't say!

In all kindness , concentrate on your pulpit and leave politics to the politicians - I've heard your name , in positive areas , so try not to follow in the shadows of other wannabee controllers - Support your choice as a voter & citizen , or even as a relative , but , save the pastoral influence for church -(I noticed a touch of temper in your # 14 comment - Relax)-

No reason to attack anyone on this thread. The purpose is to discuss the school board candidates on the upcoming ballot. If some one knows a canidate and wants to give an endorsement so be it. The purpose is to gain information about the candidates to make an informed decision prior to the election. Not attacking fellow voters for their opinion/endorsement. Everyone in the county is affected by the product of Pulaski county schools whether you have kids attending school or not. School board members play a vital role in this product. So let's focus on the candidates, for your sake and our kids sakes.

Olivia Minton must be the most gracious person in Pulaski county. Who else would spend thousands ($1,000's) of dollars in newspaper ads alone for a school board position that pays $75 per attended meeting. To represent students in a county that she does not even live in full time. Hummmmm?!?
hmmmmm

Okay! Someone please tell me how the county can justify two HUGE asst. superintendent salaries,(not to mention the super's) replacing counselors with asst. principals (who make more $$$ and stipend ) while cutting teachers and staff leaving 30 kids in a elementary classroom. No one can answer this unless they want their jobs to be eliminated "due to budget cuts" Go ahead. Look into the "PUBLIC RECORD" if you can figure out the codes. I would like to challenge the candidates themselves answer this and put my mind at ease. If you want to attack...Let's get DIRTY!!!

What does someone's occupation have to do with their ability to do the riggt thing by kids? Are you saying asphalt contractors can't make good choices?
