Why Bernadette Nutall Does Not Support Extending Dallas ISD Trustees' Terms
I thought about it long and hard and prayed about it to see what's best. I understand extension of terms, however I signed up for three years, and I would have liked for us to take it to the voters for a special election and let them decide.The board is discussing this right now. Jack Lowe just said he's not for extending terms. Then, he said he supports extending terms. Then, he left. Watch here.
What if Barack Obama wanted to extend his term? What would happen? We'd be outraged. If George W. Bush wanted to extend his term, we'd be outraged.
I work for the public and the people, and they need to determine if they want to see me longer. They might not want me for four years. They might not want me till 2012. But they've got me now.
