  • I THINK YALL IS THE JACKASS HERE GET A LIFE AND GE THE LADY CREDIT KINGLY BLACK IS THE BIGGEST JACKASS CAUSE THAT WHO GA RUN IT IF FRANCES WIN

  • Belinda is really brassy negress. Within an hour after being voted out of office(she and her entire exec board)by a majority “no confidence vote,” of 240 to 6 and with 6 abstentions, she declared that she had her new A-TEAM, ready to go again. NOT ONLY THAT BUT i AM TOLD THAT SHE ACTUALLY VOTED IN THE PROCESS AGAINST HERSELF. Have you ever heard of such nonesense? I believe she really expects to win-break win is all she will get. Belind is a jackass of the highest order and if teachers vote her back in office they will deserve what they will get from her. I am not a teacher, neither am i employed anywhere within the ministry but I follow the conduct of unions in the country and people like Belinda and John Pinder should never be honoured with the previlige of runninig any of them. I endorse Francis Friend and her team(slate) because I believe she is sober and stern in her leadership approach.She is not stupid like Belinda; she doesn’t feel like she can do anything and get away with it; break any rule and it’s alright to do. Rules are in place for a purpose and Belinda hasn’t ever learn that first lesson as yet. Send her home packing teachers; you have a golden opportunity to do so.

    • i agree with you 100 percent for those who have the privilige to lead so many,must be mature and responsible, none of the characteristics the present president possess,so i also endorse this new candidate mrs wilson had her chance.
