Liberty Dispatch would like to send kudos to the new Liberty School Superintendent, Dr. Cynthia Lusignolo, and the school board making the tough, but the correct decisions about the schools in Liberty.
In many places it is not popular and it is never flashy or grandiose to recommend focusing on the upkeep of a school’s facilities. On a consistent and overwhelming basis you will find the first money that is raided in a school budget when they need some cash is the maintenance and improvement money. Liberty ISD has been no different than most over the years, but the approach they are using with this bond issue is nothing but wise.
The difference is that Dr. Lusignolo along with her board have decided to do the right thing regardless of the fact that they could benefit more politically by spending taxpayer money on something new that all of us could see and think was progress. Instead Lusignolo is doing what is best for this community. Her respect for the taxpayer is evident in her approach.
Liberty Dispatch doesn’t know this Superintendent’s political persuasions or her affiliations but we recognize excellent planning. And we salute it.
