|Barnes-Sutton faces Steve Bradsaw on Tuesday, July 26.|
If you DID NOT vote in the last election, do not despair, you can STILL VOTE in the July 26 Runoff so long as you were registered to vote at the time of the first election. To have a say in this runoff, you will need to ask for a "Democratic ballot" for you to cast your vote on.
From the desk of the group "Unhappy Taxpayers and Voters," we received the following:
To DeKalb Teachers and Georgia Teachers:
Commissioner Sharon Barnes Sutton (of the 4th District in DeKalb County) has a long history of arriving to work late (Commission meetings and/or committee meetings) and/or not showing up at all. We ask that you review the following records (prior performance and work history/records of arriving to work on time and/or showing up) and ask if teachers that are not elected officials could get away with the same violations:
Please show us "one" teacher that is not an elected official with these types of privileges.
- How many teachers were allowed to be absent from work within the DeKalb County School System for 100 days in 9 months and 41 days in 3 months?
- How many teachers were accommodated and allowed to perform a second job ahead of the needs of the children?
- How many times have elected officials, employed with the school system, been allowed to violate policy in the name of fulfilling their job as elected officials?
- Is this special treatment?
