This letter is written to urge voters to assist the efforts of a group of concerned citizens in their effort to recall Michael Horton and Charles Brown from the Payson Unified School District's School Board.
I don't know all of the details of their failings, but I do know that the elimination of Peggy Miles at Julia Randall Elementary School was an atrocity. She is exactly the type of individual that we want as a principal in our school district. She has a master's degree in education, and a master's degree in counseling. She served JRE for two years as a principal. Her reward was the ax.
The board was underhanded and uncaring and did not have the best interests of our children at heart. If they are capable of making this kind of poor unified decision, I have only to think that more are to come, as well as many have occurred previously.
A hidden agenda was at hand in firing Peggy Miles. There is no doubt in my mind. Let's remove Brown and Horton and not allow "hidden agendas" to go unrewarded.
Doris Eiswert, Payson
