Here's one for a new candidate...

How can you assist us in decoupling from county government taxpayer funding going forward?

Agreed, but it doesn't look promising does it? Look at the members of the steering committee and their past "contributions" of our taxpayer $. Campaigning and Lobbying for SPLOST, incumbent school board members and paying their own out of the Gwinnett County Schools budget.
