Thursday, November 09, 2006Ron, if you are reading this, I'm going to reiterate this once again: we no longer trust you to serve us on the Rockingham County Board of Education. You are fast proving to us that you have no intention of putting the needs of the students ahead of your own ambition. Sadly, I am beginning to wonder if you ever had their best interests at heart to even begin with. The longer you persist in your insistence that you will be seated on the board, the less honorable you are coming to be perceived as being.
On the eve of the elections I came across a wrong that had been committed, signs that I had put up were taken down and others put in their place. I tried to correct it by committing another wrong removing the signs that had been put in the place of my signs. Two wrongs do not make a right.
For my actions I am truly sorry and I apologize to Congressman Miller, the Democrat Party and the citizens of Rockingham County. I know that neither Mr. Robinson nor Mr. Miller condone or support this type of action taken on their behalf by their supporters.
I thank Congressman Miller for not pressing charges and making an even bigger issue of this incident than it has already become. I cannot speak on the behalf of the others but my actions were not in accord with the Judeo-Christian Values that I cherish so much. I apologize to those who elected me and I pledge to serve you better as a member of the Rockingham County Board of Education.

There is a lot more that I could say about this matter, but I'm gonna hold off on that. For now.
EDIT 12:02 PM EST: Within a few minutes of my first posting this, the original "signs incident" post on Price's blog completely disappeared. So someone is reading this space, apparently.
