YOUR TURN: Ready to vote them out

MEMPHIS, TN -

(WMC-TV) - This week's "Your Turn" segment goes to Cheryl Stemmer. She's upset about the situation involving funding for the Memphis City Schools. She's mad at the school board, but she saved her harshest comments for the Memphis City Council.

In her words:

As a parent of Memphis City School children, my concern has turned to frustration and now to anger over the inability of all of you to do the right thing. I am holding the Memphis City Council responsible for the mess created when you voted to stop funding the city schools in 2008. The roughly $100 dollars you gave back to me due to a tax cut was not worth the charter surrender and the vote last night from the school board to delay the start of school. This is an election year for many of you. Do not underestimate the ability of a 40 something year old middle class working mother like myself to vote you out of office.

That's Cheryl Stemmer's turn. Now it's your turn. To comment on this segment or anything else, email yourturn@wmctv.com or call 800-465-1210.
