Flack has good reason; what about Cox?
Shame on you, George Hensley. You made the incorrect assumption that Becky Fleck was unprofessional at the Sun 'N Lake forum by observing that "While Mr. Cox spoke, she did not have the courtesy to look at him or the audience but held her head down." People who know Becky know that she is severely hearing impaired (the reason she left the classroom 24 years ago). When she cannot face a person directly and read their lips she tries her best to hear what that person is saying by blocking out any visual disctractions by bowing her head. That allowed her to concentrate on hearing, and not be distracted by the rude ongoing comments and gestures made by the Cox supporters in front of her.
Becky is to be admired, not only for outstanding, award winning leadership (remember Wally Cox hired her for the position of assistant superintenent and gave her outstanding evaluations) but because she sets an excellent example of how to continue to serve and contribute to education in spite of her disability. Could you do the same?
What was Wally's excuse for looking at the floor instead of Becky when she was speaking: shame?
Vote for Becky Fleck for Superintendent of Schools.

Handicap... really? (by: truly deaf and I look up. - 10/5/2012)
Stop using a handicap as an excuse for your behavior. Period.

you misspelled Fleck as Flack
Becky Fleck (by: Rick Haberman - 10/5/2012)
Becky Fleck is an strong, experienced leader who is well qualified for the position that she seeks. The attack on her character by a political hack like George Hensley is unwarranted.
