Rodney Thompson and others in the Berkeley County school district are trying to do what is best for the schools. However, if you read the headlines you would think he and others are major criminals.

In my humble opinion, it would be their responsibility to push for the referendum to support the school district. As a taxpayer I have the option of voting for or against what is on the ballot.

It is my responsibility to research what I’m voting for. Whoever is out to crucify him in this process is making a big mistake.

Mr. Thompson played football for me, worked for me and taught my son. He was my son’s favorite teacher, and I hold him in the highest regard as a teacher and school administrator.
