SL school board

Wednesday, September 23, 2009

I am writing to you in regard to the recent hearing on the Spirit Lake School Board.

I cannot believe that a select few have brought suit against the school board. I understand that they had a meeting in Des Moines last year as they were already there for a school board conference, to save money. I also understand this meeting was posted for all to see in the Spirit Lake area. Do people understand that these school board members donate their many hours of public service to try and have the best schools possible? I think it's a shame that certain people would even question this. I certainly hope that they have enough stories right there in Des Moines to write about. I know personally how hard these people work for the children of Spirit Lake.

Please wake up people.
