Franz ‘needs to mind his own business, both figuratively and literally’

To the editor:

I was stunned to read Rich Franz’s letter to the editor.

Franz negatively describes Lindbergh Schools and its use of taxpayer money. Franz himself lives in the Mehlville School District and is a member of Mehlville’s Board of Education. He needs to mind his own business, both figuratively and literally.

Lindbergh has been fortunate to have outstanding school board members. Lindbergh, with one of the lowest tax rates in the area, has achieved fantastic results both fiscally and educationally.

As a longtime south county resident — Affton, Mehlville and Lindbergh — I find Franz’s unfounded criticism of a neighboring school district and snide remarks about educators to be, at the very least, unfortunate.

I extend my condolences to the Mehlville School District for having a person on their board who would be so unfairly critical of an adjoining school district. I myself will continue to be supportive of our south county schools.
