Pardon me if I take a moment to blow my own horn, but I was the loudest voice in the county for hiring a Superintendent of Schools who had an extensive business background.

Superintendent Bob Runcie made another bold move, turning a sou’s ear into a silk purse.
The Western Bus depot, another Notter boondoggle is being re-purposed as an adult vocational education facility along with office space dedicated to transportation.
Saving millions by making the change, Runcie wants to move the money into hiring arts teachers.
