What do you think?

June 18, 2006

Editor's note:Each week, The Herald-Mail invites readers to answer poll questions on its Web site, www.herald-mail.com. Readers also may submit comments about the poll question when voting. Each Sunday, a sampling of edited reader comments will appear in The Herald-Mail.

Last week's poll question was: Which political office is the toughest and most thankless - County Commissioner, City Council, Board of Education, State Senator or State Delegate?

As of Saturday at 7:30 p.m., 108 voters (40.8 percent) said the Board of Education was the toughest job, while 84 voters (31.7 percent) chose County Commissioner, and 38 voters (14.3 percent) chose City Council. Another 22 voters (8.3 percent) said State Delegate was the toughest job, and 13 voters (4.9 percent) chose State Senator.




"I think the toughest part for Board of Education electees would be making decisions that affect so many of our youth. And trying to make decisions that involve all classes of the youth, with Washington County being so diverse. Trying to do what is best for all youth and trying to oversee schools and varied administrations is a huge job, and knowing all decisions will have opposition from some group or another."

"I would not want to be in (their) shoes. If they ever read some of the things people say about education and people not being educated, they would have a fit. It's not (their) fault people don't pay attention."
