Let the Bossier School Board know what you think

Let your school board member know what you think about the search for a new superintendent. These people need to hear from us; they are there to represent the people, and they need to know what the people think.
Personally, I believe that the board should cast the net far and wide in the search for a new superintendent. The system is faced with problems that are the culmination of years of good old boy politics and 'scratch my back, I'll scratch yours' operations.
I think it is imperative to introduce 'new blood' into the system.
I sent an email to my school board member, Dr. Brigham, outlining my concerns and received a prompt and satisfactory reply.
I hope that everyone who reads this will email or call today.

  2. Wait till you hear about the Bellevue Meat Processing Plant sale
    that they pulled from auction to sell at appraised value to a relative of the Haughton mayor. Cost to BPSB was $40,000+
