Letters to the editor: Financial-savvy PC schools could teach Springfield a thing or two

I would like to commend Putnam County Superintendent of Schools Jay McCracken and Board President Vicky Nauman for their wonderful response to the article that Kevin Caufield wrote in the March 28 issue of the NewsTrib concerning the finances of the Putnam County Schools.

Any reasonable person would have to agree that our Putnam County Schools are so fortunate to be governed by a board and administration that has seen to it that our finances are in good order. How rare this is in government.

I, too, would urge that this type of dedication be commended and not criticized. But I would go one step further: Perhaps we could send Mr. McCracken and our school board to Springfield for a few weeks. Heaven knows that there is plenty that they could teach the people that are supposed to be running our state government.

Terry Judd,
