Re “RPS attendance officers’ jobs on chopping block despite crucial need, service,” Free Press March 14-16 edition:
It was unconscionable for members of the Richmond delegation to the General Assembly to vote to defang the truancy law.
While school buildings were neglected and falling into disrepair, Delegates Jeff Bourne and Betsy Carr were members of the Richmond School Board and Delegate Delores McQuinn was a member of Richmond City Council. These hypocrites are part of ongoing problems and offer no solutions.
The thing that really defies logic is that the “sheeple” in Richmond keep voting for them.
This letter should be used as a list of people whom not to vote for come November. They are Delegates Bourne, Carr, McQuinn and Lamont Bagby and Sen. Jennifer McClellan.
