Dear Editor,

Talk is cheap. But Hugh Taylor has produced results.

Hugh Taylor has turned around the DeKalb County School system and gotten it moving in the right direction.  He has been a principled, conservative leader for our schools.

There is no debate that the schools system’s finances are in much better condition than when he became superintendent three years ago.  Hugh has been a wise money manager, cut waste in the budget, made our schools safer, and expanded technology in our classrooms.

Everyone talks about disliking career politicians that are only interested in winning their next election.  If you know Hugh Taylor, you know that he is not a politician.  For better or worse, Hugh has made decisions based on what he has believed to be best for students, not what would make him popular or help him win the next election.

I care deeply about the quality of education my grandchild will receive.  On Tuesday, I’ll be casting my vote for Hugh Taylor because he has done a great job as DeKalb County  superintendent and is the best person to lead our schools for the next four years.

Leonard Miller,

Rainsville, AL
