Monroe County Never Lacks Controversy and Some Good Ole’ Boy Politickin’

A few years ago, Monroe County hired a new Director of Schools. a woman and an African American, no less. Dr. Deanna McClendon challenged the status quo and ruffled up a few good ol’ boys.
Check out this online petition.


Now, it seems the Monroe County School Board is set to vote on beginning a termination on her Monday March 1.

The story (from anonymous sources) is the School Board have the word from their funding body, Monroe County Commission that the money is available for the buyout.

There is also a belief that the Mayor, a former Teacher, is looking for a job, as Superintendent of Schools as his ability of re-election is slim to none.

    You’re missing the bigger picture, Hornback. The dems have quietly reconstituted, and have been aligning to break one off in all the repub officeholders.

    Dig deeper and see where that quarter of a million is being pulled from

    If this is true the mayor and school board should be ashamed and can not count on being re-elected. Blatant violation of ethics.

    I don’t know why they are trying to get rid of this superintendent., And I don’t have any confidence in our politicians. However, I do have confidence in my community and neighbors and the remarks that I have seen here tells me she’s doing a great job. ,So I’m going with them and sighning this petition
