    Based on what our eyes have seen, our ears have heard and what we have had to deal with in the last 20 yrs of Roosevelt Skerrit, we should not expect anything good from Skerrit. I don’t know this lady but to me if the Roosevelt Skerrit administration elects anyone to do anything we know what to expect and what kind of person she is. Luke 1 Cor 15:33 warns us 33 Do not be misled: “Bad company corrupts good character.” . Skerrit represents Corruption if a bird flocks with him they have the same damn feather, no matter where they from.

      Ughhh….You admit not knowing jack about the lady yet you are here questioning her integrity and her character. How do you do that? If you know nothing about her, you can also say nothing; remain silent. Why do you use your inferences to sully her name even though you know nothing about her? Would it be okay for someone to do the same to you? No, it would not be. Smfh!

      Boss, freedom of speech has its limits. This comment goes beyond these limits.
