Thank you once again for using this forum to share your point of view. If you read my comments you will see that I make a few points regarding Wesson’s CD10. I acknowledge that he has deputies who work with the community. I acknowledge that some of them are very…

#26 McCarty School CommentAnother opinion in the mix

From "Resident" The following opinion refers to various responses by Dianne Lawrence to issues pertaining to the charter school at the McCarty Church.
