SCLC continues complaints over Valdosta High School contractors

| November 16, 2016


VALDOSTA – The local chapter of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference has continued its complaints about the construction of the new Valdosta High School, saying minority contractors are being left out.

Rev. Floyd Rose told WALB school board members promised to hire black contractors to build the school but did not live up to those promises.

Dr. Williams Cason, Valdosta City Schools Superintendent, said all contractors were given the opportunity to submit bids, no promises were made and to do so would have been illegal.

    @ Floyd Rose, You lost, THEY lost. Get over it and suck it up. If they had put in bids that were less than their competitors they would now be building the high school. The decision was not graded on the curve and you and your friends do not get extra points due to being black. Quit crying and tell your friends to go put in some bids that are less than others so they can get some jobs.
