Underhanded move

SoVaNow.com / September 16, 2021
Dear Viewpoint:

Where Do We Go From Here? To my constitutes of ED7 district and all tax payers of Halifax county. I didn’t attend the school board meeting last night due to this board being vindictive and they knew they had the votes to pass an agenda for a new HS and closing some of our smaller school’s and that is where our children get there best education. I am deeply saddened that we have lost one of our board members due to unfortunate circumstances, that played a big part of these decisions passing. I am dishearted by the purchase of this land, we are putting the cart before the horse because the board of supervisors has not gave their approval of a new HS yet. It’s always easy to spend 360,000 thousand dollars of someone else’s money on 12 acres. I hope Halifax County will get out and vote in the November elections so we can make a change in this county decisions being made. Also elect board members who have a back bone. I would have voted for our teachers and all other employees to get a raise and be put on a step that has been promised for years. I would like to thank the young lady from the high school that had concerns over our administration and the traffic in stair the wells this has been an on going problem that still hasn’t been addressed and a new high school will not fix these problems. Tough administration will fix this consistent problem. This was a underhanded, political way of pushing an agenda tthough without all taxpayers and citizens of Halifax county agreeing upon, which makes me disgusted. This was a political move and I am very disappointed with this board. We need to hold our administration accountable for their actions. Call your board of supervisor and voice your opinion.
Sincerely Keith A McDowell ED7 district
May GOD have mercy on us.
