Beasley running again for District 3 post

Wednesday, October 10, 2012

Tammy Beasley, current member of the Clay Community Schools Board of Trustees, is running for re-election as the board's District 3 representative.

Beasley has served on the school board for the past 15 months, and said she has enjoyed her time with the school board.

"I enjoy learning new things about the educational system and making decisions for the schools," Beasley said.

Beasley has lived in Clay County for 19 years. She is married and has three kids, two of whom have gone through Clay Community Schools, and one who is currently a student at Northview High School. Beasley helps her husband with his towing business.

Beasley wants to continue serving with the school board because she is interested in making sure students have an enjoyable and successful time in Clay Community Schools.

As for changes Beasley would like to see occur in the next four years if re-elected, Beasley said she would like to see the schools adjust school lunches. Beasley said her daughter is often concerned about the amount of money she spends on a school lunch for the little amount of food she is given.

"I know we have to work with government regulations on food, and that's fine." Beasley said, "but I'd like to see some discussion about school lunches and if anything can be done to improve them."

For now, Beasley believes the school board is heading in a good direction.

"Things are going really well now," Beasley said, "I think we're headed in the right direction for next year."

The general election will take place Tuesday, Nov. 6.
