    To Educator: I am so glad that I do not work in a district with you. I bet you are the most negative, first to criticize, person in the room. What truly shows your intelligence is voting against a proposal that is meant to help you. Thank God I don't teach in Sherman....and I never, ever will.

    First, I agree that teachers, custodians, lunch ladies, and aides are underpaid. But I've always thought the upper administration was overpaid and overstaffed, with professionals (big salaries) doing jobs that para-professionals could easily do - with supervision/oversight. In industry, in order to be competitive, we had to learn to operate leaner. Time for government, and, yes, school districts are part of government, to learn to live leaner - beginning at the top, not mid and lower levels.

    I totally agree with Educator who submitted at 5:15. I wish that the teachers would not take the issue personally. I was one of the 65 and older voters, and for me it was a matter of money. Because of being on a fixed income in these troubling economic times, I am having to cut back a lot on my spending. (2 meals a day is working just fine and I think I can do without one or two of my prescriptions. I can also walk more instead of using my car. It just takes a little longer.) I am sorry, teachers. I know you work really hard. I did it for many years, but I just cannot afford any more in taxes.

    As an educator who voted no, I am watching with great interest to see how the Board of Trustees proceeds. It's time for them to take a hard stand with Dr. Hambrick and demand efficiency. They need to get into the schools and objectivley assess programs and staffing. They cannot just take the word of those from central office. This is a time for teachers to make their voice heard as to what programs and processes have been forced upon them that are not efficient or effective. This vote wasn't an issue of money for many. It was an issue of trust in the decision making and spending habits of those at central office.

    You are correct, taxpayer, it is a darn shame. The doctor, who probably spent 12 in public schools, and sees no need now to support them, has his head up his you know what. So do the others who share his beliefs. Educators, and people who are concerned about them, remember, if you ever need a urologist in the Sherman area, Steven Johnson didn't support you, so please, don't support him. Use one of the may others in this area.
