Have your say Buckingham!

Buckingham Residents: Do you support Supervisor Bates' idea of eliminating the direct election of School Board members ?
Yes, let the Board of Supervisors appoint School Board members, I can't be bothered.
No, I like the idea of directly electing the County's School Board members.
Neither, I only vote for American Idol contestants!

    Although this survey is interesting, I have a simple suggestion that may resolve this issue once and for all.

    I suggest that Vice Chairman Bates, and any of the other Supervisors who think Supervisor Bates' idea is worth pursuing, hold a public information forum in a very large room. You will need a very large room to contain all the parents and citizens who will want to show up and explain why this is a dumb idea.

    Perhaps if Supervisor Bates sees with his own eyes what people really think of him and his backwards thinking, maybe he will think twice before trying again to abolish democracy in Buckingham.

    Come on Supervisors, let the people see which ones of you don't believe in democracy.

    Thank you very much.

    Mmmmmmm, This poll like most polititans is not clear and lacking in clear choices.
    . . . . and because I hate to throwaway a vote I can't.

    Not sure how much clearer it can get. Bates is a nut case who obviously forgot to show up when the lesson on democracy was given. A public apology would be nice. But I am not going to hold my breath given who we are dealing with.
