Bacallao and Marchman will be careful with our money

Along with many of our fellow citizens, I am approaching the local and the national elections with great concern. Capitalism can give opportunity for injustice, but historically it has always been far better than any other method of economics — such as fascism, socialism, etc.

The liberal elitists in Washington are rapidly destroying the economic health of our country. Attention to our recent history, as well as that of Western Europe, shows what is taking place and will only continue to worsen if our national economic policies don’t change. Hopefully these policies will change in November, but we much be prepared in case they don’t.

We must be very wise and careful in how we spend our county government monies and it is for these reasons that I strongly endorse Mary Kay Bacallao and Barry Marchman for the County Board of Education.

Mary Kay has taught both students and teachers and has also been involved in educational economic decision-making, and Barry, as a professor of finance at Georgia Tech, has had years of understanding fiscal responsibility through his vocation.

I have gotten to know both of them and am impressed with their knowledge, experience, openness to new ideas, commitment to our students and, at the same time, their ability to bring both a soundness to the financial health of our county’s educational system and to improve the quality of that education.
