If Richmond Mayor Dwight C. Jones and the Richmond Economic Authority can find the money to build The Redskins a $12 million training facility just off the Boulevard near the main DMV, give away millions in tax breaks and incentives to a brewery and continuously promote pie-in-the-sky deals invoving a new baseball stadium, one would think they could figure out a way to finance the renovation of existing schools so we do not have our children being taught long-term in trailers parked behind our schools.
Thanks to the combined cooperative leadership of a majority of the School Board -- most especially Kim B. Gray (2nd-District) and Kristen Larsen (4th-District) -- RPS Superintendent Dana Bedden and Tommy Kranz, assistant Supt of Operations, the School Board has provided voluminous information documenting the facility needs of our schools.
