The voters of the New Kensington-Arnold School District have an important decision to make on Nov. 5 and I want them to think about how electing one candidate, Tonya Pryor-Norman, might affect our district.

Since winning the May primary, Ms. Pryor-Norman's behavior and approach with the employees, volunteer groups, administration and coaches in the district has been unprofessional.

She parks her vehicle in the emergency no parking zones. She has stated her intent to fire several employees when she's elected. Firing someone without just cause exposes the district to civil liability, which could cost taxpayers thousands of dollars in unwarranted legal fees.

Westmoreland County tax records show Pryor-Norman had been delinquent on her property taxes and she paid them only in late August. Should a person who doesn't pay her taxes on time decide how to spend our hard-earned tax dollars?

Her opponent, Pat Petit, has served the district well. Pat favors all-day kindergarten and is against removing the Ten Commandments monument at Valley High School.

On Nov. 5, please vote for Pat Petit.
