BOUQUETS & BRICKBATS

Brickbat to Clay County Superintendent Charles Van Zant Jr.

Posted:

Brickbat to Clay County Superintendent Charles Van Zant Jr. for banning the board’s attorney, Bruce Bickner, from district staff meetings. During the controversy last year over prayer around a school flagpole, Van Zant, then a board member, tried to fire Bickner, whose legal advice contradicted Van Zant’s opinion. In October 2012, Van Zant solicited $500 campaign contributions from his future employees. In March, the Clay County School Board allowed Van Zant an automatic $29,000-a-year pay raise.
