•Let’s see just how much damage this man can do to our state. ... Diane Shaffer

•To the one that said they lowered school taxes, I want to know what county that was in, because it sure wasn’t mine. Mine have gone up every other year since I’ve lived here. ... Denise Goldblatt

•Adults angry over an increase in school funding, which has only been decreased continuously over the years, are the same ones to proclaim kids are so stupid they’re eating Tide Pods. You can’t have it both ways. Pick a struggle. ... Patty Wilson
