    Thank you, Gayle.
    Please don’t give up on Perry kids and teachers by not giving up on our fight to keep Dr. Williams.

    Keep up the good work. I’m very disappointed that this has happened to our township. I’m in full support of Dr. Williams and would like to see him back in position ASAP. We need him in our township. Obviously, from the board meetings, many people feel the same. Take care and God bless for all you are doing for our schools.

    Thank you, Gayle, for showing professionalism and staying positive among the mud slinging. You continue to be in my thoughts and prayers!

    I do not know how Gayle keeps her cool at those board meetings when she is treated with such disrespect by Mrs. Adams.
    Don’t give up or give in, Gayle. The majority of us here in Perry support you and what it appears you are trying to do - have the board operate in a fair way using common sense.
    Why does that seem so out of the question to Mrs. Adams and Mrs. Walsh?

    Let me just say, congratualtions Dr. Williams. I need to think up a similiar way to be put on leave while still being paid, isn’t that the American dream?
