Alternative School visit

Had a great visit with the Anderson County Alternative School on Tuesday (08.30.10) morning. I was impressed with the discipline atmosphere and am sure these young people are gaining self respect.

I was asked a question from a young man: “Are there any education requirements for elected officials.” I thought there were not, but later remembered H. 3536. This bill requires certain education for candidates for coroner. I voted against this bill and supported the Governor’s veto, however, the veto was overridden.

I would rather trust the voter’s disernment as to what they want out of their coroner.
