LETTERS: South Waltoners speak out

Published: Tuesday, August 26, 2014 at 05:44 PM.

The arrogance of the “yes” crowd cannot be overstated. They want to eliminate the superintendent as an elected position because they think Walton County is devoid of qualified candidates. With a significant number of current and former education professionals and otherwise qualified candidates in our county, we will not relinquish the vetting of candidates and selection of our education leaders by the voters to a privileged few.

Free elections allow candidates from all backgrounds to run for office. Voters decide who is qualified for the job. This process has worked since our country was founded and it has worked in Walton County so much so that our district is one of 10 in the state that is labeled “high performing” and has received an “A” grade from the State Board of Education. 

Just vote NO on August 26th.
