Terry Malakoff .489-1529 (Bud) Aflhus Cross Roads Candidate L.D. IBud) Arthus formally announced hs candidacy for trustee of the Cross Roads Independent School District this week. His formal state- ment follows: I am a 40 yar old native of Cross Roads and went to school here. My children went to Cross Roads. I want my grandson to have the same opportunity to attend a good school. The last fiscal year the school had approximately $20.000 surplus after paying a $20.000 note. This year the school is in debt approxi- mately $50,000 because the board delayed getting bids on the new building and buying furniture. The bond of $150.000 was voted to build the building, buy furniture, and pay the architect and bondsman. Bus repairs have been tabled bv the board and has caused ineffecient operation of the bus routes. Last year Mr. Bristow, secretary of the board, refused to sign payroll checks that the board had approved. I don't believe one man has the authority to overrule the board. The board should listen to the people of the district. Board meetings should be held openly accord- ingly to the law. At one time a comnaittee of the board members met and wrote a new board policy without the administrator or anv of the public being present When questioned about the new policy, the board would not disclose any of the policies written. When asked to read the new policy in public, two board members walked out. The first consideration of any board member should be o the students. Children should be given every oppor- tunity possible to obtain an education without conflict. The Cross Roads School Board policy limits citizens right to speak. From the State board of education: "The school is losing accreditation because 'it" ('l'he Boardt has demonstrated a chronic un- willingness or inability to function in its proper role as a policy-making and appraisal body or to recognize an administrator as its chief executive officer and charge him with the administrative function.

IEddie) Shook today formally announced his can- didacy for the Cross Roads Independent School District board of trustees. His state- ment follows: I have been a resident of the Cross Roads School District several yearS. I moved into the district because I wanted my children in a small school. The school board should be an advisory and policy making body. It is directly responsible to the citizens. At one board meeting we  were told by the president of the board that they were tired of parents coming to meet- ings, and that they, the bodrd, were going to run the school the way they wanted. I am not in agreement with ::,,,,:  this type of response to the -,, people of the community. People should have a voice in the operation of the school. A hoard member is supposed to represent the people. Parents and taxpayers should be listened to and not walked out on as the present boa'rd has done. Most recent example of their rudeness was at the March 3. 1975 meeting when the board refused to answer a lady's request to hear the new board policy. Mr. Bristow and Mr. Turlington walked out.
