Adair Board of Education Tax Hearing: John Pilkington speaks|

Members of the Board, from left, are Vice Chair Terry Harvey (Div 1), Jonathan Gaskins (4), Board Chair Lisa Burton (3), Daniel Adams (2). and out of frame, Mike Harris (5). The measure passed 3-2, on the recommendation of Dr. Pam Stephens, who presented the case for the tax increase, which is projected to bring an additional $134,000 next year.
