I think they need that and security guards far more than we need a new office created in the court house.

If Mike Sexton keeps his promise to stop the central financing we should start a petition to use that money for nurses.

I heard the company running the clinics closed because they couldn't collect bills from the parents. I thought the schools owned the clinics I didn't know they were a company.

I'll say it again Mike Sexton for Mayor!
