Questions sent to school board candidates ...

Hello Candidates,

You are running for one of the most difficult and least appreciated jobs in the county. Thank you for your willingness to represent Liberty.

Below are 5 questions that I would like each of you to answer. 

Please also tell me if I may share your email, phone, or website for other questions from readers.

If you do not answer. "Refused to answer" will be placed next to your name and the question.
1) Your stance on Common Core? 
2) Your stance on adding a 7th School Board member? 
3) Your stance on adding an additional school in Easley? 
4) Your stance on funding the school district considering the current balloon payment structure for school repayment and rising healthcare costs? 
5) Do you have anyone in your family that is employed by the school district? Will you recuse yourself from pay raise votes?
Also, I am arranging a debate for March 15, 2014. You may be asked to discuss the answers you give here.

Good Luck,

Rus Smith
editor, The Liberty Monitor

Kathy Powell
Bonita Holland
Brian Swords

The special election will be held Tuesday April 1, 2014 7AM-7PM at typical Liberty Polling locations.
