We’ll get back to our Media in Transition series shortly, but first, a comment on the education SPLOST that Columbus voters approved.
First of all, hats off to Columbus attorney Frank Myers who worked tirelessly to get the SPLOST passed. He didn’t front the campaign, but he was very busy behind the scenes doing things like getting TV commercials made.
The real hero, though, is Superintendent Susan Andrews. She put her reputation on the line to get voters to approve the penny tax for Columbus’ schools. Obviously, she got impressive support. Now she has to deliver. She can’t do it alone, though. She needs a lot of help, the kind she got yesterday, and not just from the public, but, from the school board, too. They also have to deliver.
