Still on simmer: election of superintendents

The election of superintendent's is still simmering.

State Senator Rusty Crowe has received up to 10,000 signatures and countless emails, letters, and phone calls regarding superintendent problems in the Elizabethton, Johnson City, and Washington County school districts.


Crowe says he can't ignore his constituents concerns, so in February, he plans to introduce legislation that would allow school board members to choose three candidates and let voters elect who they want to run their school system. From

As I wrote back on June 29, legislation was introduced but not even given a hearing.

Maybe this time around the voice of the people will at least be given a chance to be heard.
