Since democrats and independents have again effectively been prevented from voting for superintendent in Clay County, the election is going to hang on what the county's republicans do and a small turn out undoubtedly favors Van Zant well Van Zant is doing all he can to make sure that turnout is low.
Today he announced that that the counties high school open houses with the exception of Keystone Heights will occur on August 30th which for all intents and purposes is the day the superintendent race will be decided.
He is making some parents decide between voting and meeting their children's teachers. He is in effect making it more burdensome to vote. Imagine a parent off at 5 and they have to either vote and or go to open house along with all the other normal things they might have to do. His decision is designed to make things difficult for people in the hopes of suppressing turnout which as I stated undoubtedly benefits him.
I also want to remind you this comes on the heels of reports of how Van Zant cajoles Clay county's administrators who don't have job protections into supporting him.
What's up with these family values republicans continuously thumbing their nose at family values?
Clay county you have a very important decision to make, four more years of the petty politics, graft, teacher disrespect and quite frankly Van Zant's overall poor performance and terrible values or to make a change.
Please say no to more of Van Zant's shady way of doing things.
