Reader offers three cheers for Dan Fowler

To the editor:

Three cheers for Dan Fowler.

His in-depth analysis of the “colossal mess” left by retiring Superintendent John Cary was enough to make a grown man cry.

I am sure we will be paying for Mr. Cary’s wonderful retirement benefits for many a year.

I have always been under the impression the Board of Education was supposed to exercise control over the administration, but it appears now that the “tail is wagging the dog.”

Rest assured Mehlville School District, it will be a long, long time before this family votes “yes” for a tax increase or a new bond issue.
