Earlier this year, Businessman, Husband, Father and Community Leader Conley Underwood lost a narrow election to longtime education bureaucrat Mike McMillan for a four year term on the Knox County School Board.
During the campaign period, Retired School Principal Alvin Taylor was circulating a rumor that if Underwood were elected the Carter Elementary School would be scrapped. Lies are hard to overcome in a campaign especially when you are a first time candidate like Underwood.
Tonight at the School Board meeting the Board voted to defer the building of a NEW Carter Middle School Gymnasium. The Elementary School is under construction. But now it appears McMillan is the one that can not deliver and can not deliver a NEW Middle School Gymnasium.
So, Taylor's line was partially true. The problem is his guy is the one that can't deliver.
Stay Tuned, I will be blogging more about McMillan's style. His style keeps the Eighth District in the dark ages.
