‘Arrogance,’ ‘ignorance’ of Mehlville school board president ‘palpable’

To the editor:

The arrogance and ignorance of Mehlville Board of Education President Tom Diehl is palpable.

The comment in the Oct. 8 issue of the Call demands an apology to the residents of south county — “… The propensity of south county people (is) to want to do as little as they can get by with on so many things.”

I do not trust Mr. Diehl to be the arbiter of my actions or my conscience. If other like-minded board members harbor the same sentiments, maybe they and Mr. Diehl should look for some place else to live.
