What some officials say about central office discussions

What some say about the central office discussions
ěI am saddened that there are people in the community who feel the schools are better served by continuing to operate with inefficiencies that cannot be solved in any way other than creating a central office. They should be outraged that $200,000 that could be going toward owning an efficient, permanent building is being used to pay rent to landlords, pay higher utilities and fund additional employees created by multiple locations.î
ó Randy Hemann
executive director of Downtown Salisbury Inc.
ěIt doesnít have to be a palace, but by the same token from what Iíve heard the Long Street Office is hardly worth the millions of dollars work of renovations it needs to be maintained.î
ó Richard Miller
school board member
ěIím interested and willing to sit down with members of the school board and discuss a central office. Iím probably not on the same page they are in relation to what they are looking for, but if there is some compromise on both sides then certainly in some point and time I can see them in a new facility.î
ó Jim Sides
county commissioner
ěI would like to have some other options. Iím not sold on this project, Iíd like to see where itís going. Iím willing to listen to it. Right now, Iíve got too many questions about it. I really think we should take baby steps instead of trying to jump into it at once.î
ó Mike Caskey
school board member
ěIím ready to start begging. Iîm ready to start talking to people in this community and say you know letís band together, letís do something good for the people of Rowan County, for the children of Rowan County.î
-ó Kay Wright Norman
school board member
