County Commissioner Greg Beck said a list of county school building priorities outlined by Supt. Rick Smith on Tuesday is "laughable."
He noted it does not include any projects for his District 5, including his top priority - a $5 million new stadium for Howard High School.
Commissioner Beck said those seeking projects of their own, or a tax increase, won't get his vote unless there is something for District 5.
The Smith list includes replacing Chattanooga School for the Liberal Arts, building a new middle school for East Hamilton/East Brainerd, replacing Ganns Middle Valley Elementary, adding onto Nolan Elementary on Signal Mountain, an addition or replacement of Sale Creek Middle-High, and an addition at Wolftever Elementary.
