notes on government, sports and popular culture
there are no good school board races this year. Most people get fired up about school board politics when their neighborhood is directly impacted, like the High Point plan and the recent redistricting.
But here's something to think about. What didn't get a lot of print at the last county commissioners' meeting was when school board
chairman Alan Duncan requesting $2 million in bond money be transferred from the Jamestown Middle School project to finish other projects.
The school system said last summer it was running over budget on the $300 million package passed in 2003. But this request assures that Jamestown Middle will not be completed with money from this bond package. Where twill the money come from? It will most likely come from another bond referendum the school system will push.
That might be interesting. so here's the question: If Forsyth can come in on budget
, why can't Guilford?
