Jeff Mays said something like with the voters passing the referendum to build the schools the voters also showed they put their faith and trust in the school board to make decisions and do what is right.. Uh lets not get carried away Mr. Mays. I didn't see that on the ballot and I think the public still has concerns!

Sounds like something a bitter woman would do because her man left her for someone actually having a job and prospects and not being negligent to her children. When the alleged near car collision fails, they just end up claiming rape or domestic abuse, and because of VAWA and the fact that they are women, 'THEY ARE ALWAYS RIGHT' ! Go girl power. Thank you feminist dems! You make the rocking…
