In the Southern Christian Leadership Conference article regarding the proposed supplemental school tax on the ballot in November, at the request of the Halifax County School Board, the board of commissioners approved to place it on the ballot — which by law the commissioners are required to do.

It was also mentioned that the board of commissioners had" intentionally and discriminately failed over the years to provide funding for any of the schools in Halifax County, as opposed to the city schools," which is not true.
The Halifax County Board of Commissioners have funded each school district — Roanoke Rapids, Weldon and Halifax — as required.
Roanoke Rapids and Weldon has a supplemental tax which has been in place for many years and was approved by the voters in their respective districts.
The Halifax County Board of Commissioners is not responsible for the approval or not approving the supplemental tax.

Vernon J. Bryant, chairman
Halifax County Board of Commissioners
