Regarding the Oct. 22 news story “Durham school board cancels Becoats’ credit card”: What a total disgrace that the Durham school board is even entertaining retaining Superintendent Eric Becoats’ services. Not only did he mess up once with the misuse of the county’s bus for personal use, then he does it again by using the county’s credit card for personal use! What is wrong with this picture?
Becoats is supposed to lead by example, not be the example! Why is the school board wasting its time and taxpayer money “investigating” these two incidents, especially since he has not denied his guilt? Fire him!
