Folks, let’s review this promise the Republican Party made to the voters of Roane County.
Their promise would make the government more efficient and reduce the cost of state government.
Their first act was to attack teachers and remove their right to negotiate their wages and working conditions.
We do not need to go back to the old method of replacing teachers because they voted differently than the education superintendent or county executive.
We need to keep the system of advancement by tenure or otherwise experience.
The best improvement would be to replace Julia Hurley with a more experienced state representative.
