Time and an opportunity to walk the talk

There is a policy committee meeting this afternoon at 5pm, in the Martin Delayo room, at the Uptown Centre. The board is scheduled to discuss a code of ethics.

By about 5;20, the district will either be on a path toward honest accountability to meaningful standards of conduct and competence as public servants;


they will continue the always unethical and often illegal evasion of honest accountability to any standard of conduct at all; even the law.

The decision is not so much their's as it is yours.

If you decide not to go to the meeting and point them in the right direction; they will continue down the same path.

The board members who stand up for honor and courage and character today, will be standing alone; except for the people who show up to stand beside them.

The meeting is being held at an inconvenient time and place for a reason.

You are so right in how important attendance is. Today’s online journal has an article about Lovington School board and this quote from “Slick” (now that’s name for a board member) shows how important attendance is. So be there tonight ya’ll!

Board member Thurman "Slick" Duncan expressed his support for the proposal and said it was clear by the attendance at Tuesday's meeting that others also are behind the idea.
