I “was” a die-hard Republican, now I’m pondering what type of party would best represent my views. I’m also agnostic. I will never be a Democrat, nor a religious Bible thumper.

In response to the letter from Clint Norris (“It’s an election year, pay attention,” AFN, Feb. 14), it is my hope that your readers pay close attention to what he wrote. We’ve elected people who choose not to address the tough issues, yet come back to us on their next campaign promising to “fix” things.
“If dozens of skilled teachers and administrators are suddenly bolting from the Gilbert Public Schools, parents are loudly protesting, the interim superintendent throws up his hands to quit early because these people can’t be helped, and if a forceful demand for your resignation is met with standing ovations and cheers from an overflowing board room, then it is time to take the high road.
