    Ms. Taylor is correct; the problem is the corruption of power. It crosses all racial and gender lines.

  2. Tim Says:

    Where’s the hispanic representation…this ain’t just a black thing, get some hispanics on the board and women.

    And not the same old faces and names.

    Perhaps, consider an outside the county panel….just don’t trust ANYONE, anymore in this county. The board will stacked with buddies.
