Mr. Gantt says that the District 5 board needs to work together. Well, unfortunately, his idea of working together is everyone thinks and votes the way he wants. He asserts alot, but the wise people in the district will not believe it just because he says it’s so.

I have lived in this district since 1976 and have seen a lot of misstatements by the board to get what they want. Remember the bond referendum when the board said the student population was increasing until it passed and then they admitted that it was declining. They have also done a lot of secretive things over the years. Most of them comming in the recent past.

Unfortunately, I can’t vote against Mr. Gantt, but I urge all of my aquaintances that can to do so.
