In 2012 and this cycle he has sought to disenfranchise much of the electorate in Clay County and he arguably stole the election in 2012.
Teacher morale is rock bottom?
He has shown an open disdain for transgender children.
He has hired his cronies and sycophants.
He has pressured at will employees into supporting him.
Even though there have been budget problems he supported a new charter school in Clay county, a school whose two grades have been F and D.
Clay's financial rating was downgraded under his watch.
Even if all that is okay with you the academic performance that Clay County has dropped considerably under his leadership, in short it has been has been abysmal.
Look at these numbers from the Clay Today.
On July 8, the Florida Department of Education reported that the Clay County School District had dropped from an “A” to a “B” district and its ranking overall had dropped from 11th to 20th. A number of schools dropped in letter grade and the district’s first charter school went from a “D” to an “F.” (Remember, charter schools are funded by public tax dollars.)
Van Zant's performance on arguably ever metric has been poor. How can anybody in good conscious support him and if you are doing so just because of what church he goes to then you are letting Clay County's children, teachers and schools down.
