With the recent actions of the Reading School Board, it is obvious that both sides of Washington Street have become self-serving instead of serving the best interest of the citizens of Reading.
We have a mayor and city council that are lacking in common sense. We also have a School Board president whose condescending attitude and arrogance is supported by most of the Board members. Did you ever get the feeling that this man thinks he is the only intelligent person in the city? With the "Good Old Boy" network now working both sides of Washington Street, Reading is going nowhere.
We deserve qualified public officials who will not be indebted to any interests and who will bring to our City qualified managers, like those who were driven out of town in the past year. We need people who can bring prestige back to the City and make it a decent place to live again.
