Doug Duncan started this. Time to hold him accountable

The Seven Locks community was minding its own business, content with its 40 year-old, non-crowded school and not asking the school system for anything, when all of a sudden County Executive Doug Duncan asked Superintendent Jerry Weast for some school land in the area so he could build a high-density housing project.

Weast is also Secretary-Treasurer of the Board of Education.

Somehow, Duncan has escaped responsiblity for the terrible mess he has caused.

In the past month, he's been backing away from it and passing the buck.

His supporters should help him clean it up now - for good - or the issue will snowball into a scandal that will consume him and some of his allies.
