Now ya have it. Tax dollars going down the tubes because of the Good Old Boy system. Thats right, Billy Bob and the boys have screwed you again and will continue to do it unless you clean house. When you get those administration people in there for years and years they get comfortable and spend your money like it's theirs.
2 terms for the positions and then out, get some fresh blood in there.

It's time to vote again & now is the time to get those criminals out of our school system & out of our pockets & the children's pockets as well....I hope to God they get the punishment they deserve but they will probably get buy with it....vote them out or ask them to resign.....I'd say your right about the amount, it's probably much much more than the $200,000 their talking about...put a boot in their a w s & get em out NOW.....

Be careful what you say or do to J W. AP and KC on the board. Check into their pasts and you will find people who will tell you about the times they have lied, cheated and stolen at their work places. They've always gotten away with it. Maybe they have finally met up with sonebody that will hold then accountable or maybe they will get away wirh it and claim ignorance. then theyll be coming after you. I don't know anything about the others. They could be ok for all I know.

my first impression of the Interrum Superintendent tonight was that he is smart and know how to deal with people, Frankfort, and our board. Speaking of the board,,,I was at the Mason County Board meeting tonight and I witnessed a lady saying (bumbling and stuttering) that she is an honest person and that we the public should trust and believe her. I know for a fact that she has been dishonest and stolen from others. I was a skeptic in the audience to everything she and some of the other board members had to say.

If you don't keep on them they will continue to rob the public and students. Keep pressure to have Attorney General involved.

I think there are a couple on the board who are honest. It sounds like we are in for a long time period before justice happens. I appreciated the civility of everybody's comments from MCEA, to the community members as well as the teachers. I'm very thankful for the teachers at Mason County. I feel bad that so many of them have been afraid of negative consequences from the board or admin. They are in the trenches everyday teaching numerous kids.(None of us would ever consider babysitting 25-30 kids everyday, much less teach them the three R's) again thank you. Stand firm but at the same time make we don't stomp on the innocent.
