Walton County's students deserve the best schools possible, and all residents deserve a qualified superintendent of schools who is accountable for results every day.
Now that our current superintendent of schools has declared her intention to retire in 2016, it's time to improve the process of selecting our school superintendent.
In an education referendum on the Tuesday, August 26 ballot, Walton County has the opportunity to give voters more power of the education of our children and grandchildren.
A YES vote on this referendum will make the superintendent of schools an appointed position. Check out the different sections of our website to learn more about why this change will benefit Walton County's students, parents, teachers, taxpayers and all residents.

A recent letter warned readers that the referendum to improve the process of choosing Walton County's superintendent of schools is a secret liberal scheme designed to institute a "progressive education philosophy" in Walton County. As President of the Walton County Taxpayers Association (WCTA), as a committed and lifelong conservative, and as someone who led the effort to put this referendum onto the ballot, I must respond: you've gotta be kidding me!
