Is this guy really on the Bartow County School Board and at the same time principal of the local Chrsitian private school? Is this a conflict of interest?

Don"t start on Davis. He puts in a tremendous amount of time working for the schools an community. He is a much better person than folks give him credit for. If you have a problem with him you probably don't really know him.

Every time this man is involved with the county schools there is nothing but turmoil and controversy. When he was canned as superintendent (remember the misappropriated $3.5 million dollars?) he should have just gone on with his life but he's so full of himself he had to run for school board to get his nose back under the tent.

Conflict of interest- When the personal or professional motives of a Board member conflicts with the best interest of a School System. Can anyone think of an example involving Davis Nelson?

Or when the Private school principal's management becomes micro management on the school board of the public school, does he involve himself in the day to day management decisions of the public schools?

Rammer, Nelson is head of Excel Academy which has gotten a sweetheart deal to use the sports facilities at the old Cass High. Conflict? Yes! I hear there are many more examples.

Also how about someone enlightening us on the lawsuit between Davis and his siblings... I hear they sued him because he manipulated their parents into leaving everything to him before he died. Anyone know the facts on this?

Is Davis Nelson the one running the show along with Boyd Pettit on keeping the lady in Post 5 on illegally? Does anyone stand up to them at all?

This school board is corrupt...and any board member who doesn't speak up publicly on these issues is part of the problem, even if they disagree with Nelson and Pettit. Seems to me like there are many people running the show who either have no spine or don't have the strength of character to do the right thing even when they are the only ones to do so.

It's high time some really good people run for these offices to clean up this place. Don't we all deserve better?

If the Church of God can use the facilities then why not the Muslims, Roman Catholics and others?

Religions have no business using government facilities.

It would be interesting to know if the Bartow County School System has to maintain a liability policy on the students using the systems facilities. If so, who pays for this? If not, what is the liability to the system.

My thinking is.....you open the facilities up to one organization, religious or other, then you open it to all. Just like Maxwell said. Sounds to me like someone has opened a can of worms.

The Bartow County Board of Education is all about numbers. You get 3 votes and you rule the entire county school system. Isn't it interesting....the 3 new board members always vote together. The students, teachers and parents of the county do deserve better. I understand that teachers are scared to death of losing their jobs...such power as these 3 board members have.

His nephew aka principal told us grads while in gym to clap for Dr. Nelson when they introduced him at CHS graduation. It is sad when someone has to be told to clap for him. Would he not have gotten claps otherwise?
