Norman on his school board candidacy

Tony Norman
Former Knox County Commissioner Tony Norman, who plans to run for school board, released this letter to supporters:

Dear Friends,

As you know, the past few years have been chaotic for Knox County Schools. Administrative scandals have been common and massive amounts of taxpayer dollars are being wasted on failed policies and practices. Our teachers and students are under attack by so-called educational reformers.

I have decided to seek election to the School Board representing the 3rd District. Our community needs someone who will advocate for our district; not the special interests, but citizens.

We need a school board representative who will insist on programs that help teachers to better teach our kids and see that the dollars are spent in the classrooms, not for pensions for administrators or simply a bigger bureaucracy. We need some common sense and plain talk on the Board of Education.

I would like to be that advocate and I need your support and vote. Help me stand up for our students, teachers, parents, and taxpayers.

On Thursday, October 22 from 6:00 – 8:00 I am having a reception at the Holiday Inn Cedar Bluff to kick off my campaign and I want to personally invite you to attend.

If you want to share your thoughts, or merely let me know I can count on you, please give me a call or send me an email. I’d like to hear from you, as I want to know what you think about our schools and ways to improve them. Of course, we can also discuss these issues in person at the kickoff event.

Hope to see you on October 22nd.

Best regards,

Tony Norman
