The vote taken by one of the Payson School Board members in denying our less fortunate school children food is certainly deplorable.
To make the assumption that low income families are not worthy of assistance to ensure that their children have, at least, one well-rounded meal a day showns the Confederate (Tea) Party’s lack of compassion.
Many families who participate in the food program must be truly offended by the suggestion that they are “enabling parents” and are on drugs, etc.
Maybe the board member is the one who needs counseling.
