Last night I attended the Pickens County School Board's swearing in ceremony. Dr. Bagley, Mrs. Garrison, and Mr. Hasket were sworn in. All of them swore to protect, defend, and preserve both the United States and the State Constitutions and Judge Cleary threw in "to the best of your Ability". Does the best of your ability mean that the Board member will read Article 11 Section 3 and the entire 10th article about taxation and finance and ask Columbia to fund our schools properly and quit hammering the people of Pickens County? I also challenge them to personally read the state ethics law before any of them vote to increase salaries for teachers or administration.
The people have spoken for these elected folks and we should give them a chance to do what is lawful and right.
