Remember school-closing controversy when you vote

Voters, before you vote, I would like you to please remember the big upset when some members of the Rowan-Salisbury Board of Education tried to close down our local community schools. Susan Cox was one of those members, and she is running again for school board, seat 7.

This could easily happen again if we let people who are in favor of closing those schools on this board.

I have a grandchild at Enochville, and I for one do not want to see some of our best schools be a thing of the past.

Please consider voting for “Dr. Rob” Robertson. He has come out and said he is not in favor of closing those schools. Mrs. Cox has already shown us where she stands, and those of us that want to keep those schools need to remember this come election time.

New friends

The Clinton political machine went back in time in their effort to find anything they could on Donald Trump. They were successful in finding something negative 11 and 21 years ago. I believe it is important to remember that, during that time frame, Mr. Trump was a Democrat and friend of the Clintons.

Good news. New friends to Trump are Dr. Ben Carson and wife Candy. It is always encouraging to see good change in folks, and the best way to change for the better is to change friends. Hopefully, this friendship will continue, as he looks to Dr. Carson as an adviser and the rewriting of health care.

Look at it this way — if Trump does something newsworthy every 10 years, he could serve two terms and still have two years left before he goofs again.

With all of Hillary’s current illegal behavior, Donald Trump has to be the best choice. Hillary really is scary, and she says I am a deplorable. She and Madeline Albright cannot tolerate those in disagreement with them.

How about some gratitude?

If it wasn’t for us independents and Republicans, you hypocrites and Democrats wouldn’t have a job.
