Smola and Smith signs popping up in Tyrone

Funny I've seen no others yet. Maybe they're opponents feel they don't need to use any.

To think we may have an intelligent, well qualified person on the Board fills me with hope for the future. After attending most board meetings over the last four years I always walked out of there feeling I had just witnessed a soap opera. Smola’s rudeness and lack of professionalism and Smith wearing her ignorance likes a badge were just plain embarrassing. I cannot wait to see Houston with his awesome finance background and WestPoint manners making this Board a professional entity.

Thank you Dave Houston for throwing your
hat in the race to oust Janet Smola.

Now, it's up to us, Fayette county, to
get him elected. Mark your calendar and
tell your friends - - we've got an opportunity
for a fresh start - - let's take it!

Loblolly Pine v. Smola and the Pine Tree gets my vote.

Loblolly pine would get mine as well. All anyone else has to do is put their name in the pot and they would win.

You talk about responsibility...I just found out that Marion Key isn't going to be at the Budget Workshop (in a crisis year!) because she's going to go to Science Olympiad in Washington! Hmmmm...she wasn't at the Annual Board Retreat either, conveniently on the same day as the state Science Olympiad. The two most important strategic planning meetings of the year and Marion's not participating. I guess she thinks the most important part of her job is travelling. I'd love to know how many other meetings she's missed! You know what Marion, we don't want you there! Stay home and do your job!

Marion Key is a snake in the grass. She acts like she opposed the recommendation in support of North Peachtree Parkway. She has ALWAYS said that all of Crabapple should attend Flat Rock & Sandy Creek. If she had her way, many more people would be leaving PTC for school and it wouldn't be just to Bennett's Mill. ALL THOSE RUMORS YOU HEARD BEFORE THE RECOMMENDATIONS WERE EVEN MADE CAME FROM HER! Also, she wanted to send the Robinson Road group to Rising Starr/Starr's Mill to clean up the feeder patterns even though Booth is in their backyard. She wanted to move Brooks to Rising Starr to make room for Highgrove, New Haven, and Whitewater to Whitewater and Whitewater. She wanted to move Lakemont and Lakeside to Fayette Middle and Fayette High. Where do you think the Bennett's Mill kids would have come from if not from Peachtree City? The North Peachtree Parkway parents are gullible if they think she is on their side. You can't trust her as far as you could throw her. Don't turn your back on Marion unless you want a knife in it. If a Janet Smola attacked her, it was because she is sick of Marion's lies.

Perhaps it would be useful for the voting public to see graphs portrayed of CRCT results over the same tenures of serving board members. Sure they would not mind showing their results. Might be very enlightening!

I am guessing the candidates running against Smith & Smola think the people in Fayette county have enough common sense to see that a change is needed and Smith & Smola need to go. How could anyone vote for Smith again (hasn't she been in office 12 years?) when you have a woman-Dr. Mary Kay Bacallao - running against her who has a career in education, teaches teachers, had a PH.D in education? Smola has a candidate - Houston - with new ideas, no ties to Tyrone politics and West Point grad running against her. How in the world could anyone vote for Smola? Marion Key has been on the board long enough & had her time to influence the county schools. Time for her to go. Carol Jensen-Linton would be an excellent board member. She has great ideas for the county regarding nutrition, school buses and the budget. Jensen-Linton is still involved in schools even though her son has graduated. The other candidate against Key has not had children in public schools very long, maybe 1 or 2 years - having spent many years in private schools. I think someone who has had their children in public schools makes a better candidate. This county needs new people in office, not career board members! I hope enough people are in town July 15th to make a change!

I'm so glad we have some good people running. The only one I'm going to vote to keep is Key. I think if she hadn't been silenced by the 'mouth of the south', she could have done more to fix our problems. When you have one that wants to hog the show, it is hard for others to get a word in. I hope our new group will work together.
