Mike Hayes (NOT CURTIS HAYES SON)
Vs.
David Sadler

Sadler has put his kids and family into positions all over the county and has in the past 12 months got his daughter-in-law hired at AH Roberts over more experienced candidates, and his son hired as the new Director of the bus garage without even so much as a job posting for the position. I mean look at the local papers, their son is in there almost every single week for something, are there no other students at LA? No other soccer players? Seriously.

Do you want this nepotism?
Shouldn't hard working teachers, and citizens get a fair shot at these jobs? Or do you want for every member of the Sadler family to be feeding at the tax-payer trough?

Vote Hayes


Lanny Ledbetter
Vs.
Houston Robbins

This one is a no brainer, Lanny is a hard working good honest guy, meanwhile Houston has set at the chair of this corrupt school board for a while now. He has been Matt Eldridges right hand man. A vote for Houston is a vote to keep things going the way they are.

Which is nowhere.

Larry looper is challenged by mrs Norrod. Looper needs to go. He is only interested in sports and family. He is one of the buddy-buddy bunch. Leslie Norrod is one that will not be talked into anything by the buddy-buddy bunch. She believes in doing things right and will fight for that to the end. We have got to stop the corruption in the school system and she will be one to help get it stopped.
Vote Leslie Norrod for school board!

You can't vote for all three hat rack. They are in different districts.

Well I won't vote for Ledbetter. I can't believe he's running for this. Is it really the one from Hilham?
That would be a joke. I will vote for the other news one that are running but I can't in good faith vote for Ledbetter. I do know Michael Hayes hes a good man I just hope people know that he's NOT the Mayors brother because that's his name to.

Would you care to explain why you cant vote for him. If he is part of the good ole boys network the public deserve to know.
do not know

I do not know if Lanny Ledbetter is from Hilham, but he obviously does not live there now because he is running in the Allons district. No one is running against Ray Smith in the Hilham district. Reading some of the comments, it sounds like some people need to find out which district they live in and figure out who they can vote for.

The LL that I know lived in Hilham many years ago. He doesn't live there now so it must be the one I know that use to live there. If it's him he has a really nice wife but I won't vote for him. If you know him you will know why.

I dont know him or his wife but I dont think being nice is a requirement for being on the school board, matter of fact that may be whats got us in the shape we are in now. If he is more concerned with the future of Overton Countys children than with hurting your feelings then he has my vote.If you cant tell me otherwise, you really should quit making vague remarks.

They really should have backgrounds checks on these people. That goes for the ones in now and the new ones that come in. If any do. This should be done for anyone that runs for any position.

How many names are you going to post under? First you tell someone you cant vote for all three hatrack, then you say you wont vote for Ledbetter but you will vote for the other news ones and then when I call you out on posting unfounded comments you change your posting name and let on like there is some reason you feel like he should undergo a background check without giving a reason. Mr Ledbetters name is out here for everyone to see and I feel like if you would post your real name he would be interested in knowing this awful wrong he has done to you. Heck he might even say hes sorry. How about it?

The new ones running can't be any worse than the ones we have now.

I agree stew2, not the sharpest knife in the drawer. There are no choices on our district. Houston, we also have a problem. Never are. Can't get a decent qualified person to run. My opinion is that if you ever worked for the school system, that should be a disqualification. What have we got now? Half are retired teachers or directors? What's up with that? One word , Vendetta. They run for selfish reasons and the self illusion of power. No one ever runs for the right reason. The kids and the taxpayers always get the short shaft. Most of the crew they have appointed now have never grown up. They act like they are still in High school. They behave worse than the children. Disheartening. Sad situation for our kids trying to get into college or other advanced educational programs. This county needs to wake up.

Why dont you run as a write in in your district maybe then you would have something to do besides answering yourself and bashing anyone who is running. The only thing you have done with your remarks is prove to me who the current people are most afraid of getting elected.

I agree I think school board members should be those with no experience of teaching/etc. Get someone in who has morals and a good work ethic. Hayes runs a PEPSI location which takes considerable bisiness experience. This can not hurt balancing the school budget at all. Not sure of other two but we need some with common sense and a back bone!

Mrs. Poston is a retired teacher but she said she did not like the way that the present board is breaking the sunshine laws. That is enough for me. Mrs. Norrod has her own beauty shop and knows about business. That is enough for me. I think all 3 need to be elected. They will be a lot better than what we have now. They can't be any worse than who they are running against. I will help all three of them anyway that I can.
