First off let me thank the Chattanoogan.com for allowing the citizens of our community to express our opinions on issues and matters concerning our lives.
As always you can have views of the same thing which are on opposite ends of the spectrum and that is the great thing about our country and the First Amendment afforded us in the divinely inspired Constitution.
It amazes me as you read and assess certain topics such as the recent property tax increase and as you dig on those opinion articles written and submitted that the only ones for this “so called” needed burden to the property owners of our county are those who will receive not only financial gains but also political power which more money will afford them under the guise of “for the children”.
As we look to the bloated Central Office and the salaries of “assistants to the assistants” where do we find stewardship of “our” monies and that it is being properly spent and appropriated to the boots on the ground and that being the teachers?
I ask that the county commissioners put a clause into the budget that no additional funds be allocated to the Dr. Johnson and Central Office salaries, their associates and family members, PEF, UnifiEd and any other leaches and consultants that operate supposedly supporting this debacle of a school system.
