Saturday I opined about a Pam Trainor and Jim McClain race for School Board over in South Knoxville. Well, today that race got legit. Retired Teacher and Former South Knox County Teacher Larry Clark picked up a petition. The thing that makes Clark legit is that he knows public education, he has no axe to grind with the pro Chamber crowd or the anti Chamber crowd. He will represent the citizens of South Knoxville professionally, responsibly and without bias.
In other news, Halls Elementary School Librarian Amber Rountree also picked up a petition to run for the same seat as Clark, Trainor and McClain. If the opinion of TN Election Coordinator Mark Goins still holds Rountree can run, however, if successful MUST resign for employment with the school district. The income of a school board member of $20,000 +/- in exchange for a librarians salary?
