Gail LCPS do not get money from the lottery. The area we live in is too wealthy. Teachers have not had a cost of living increase in 5 years. They gave all employees a small increase in pay this year which the board of supervisors reported to the Loudoun residents and then raised our health insurance and we have to pay our retirement money now so in other words we got nothing. I do think the road situation in this entire area needs drastic improvements. The roads are pretty much the same as they were 15 years ago but we have 10 times more people living here now.

Why doesn't the board stop approving new homes. Been here 25 years and all i've seen is new homes, more people, more kids, more schools and more traffic. I'm a school employee as well and think people who don't work for school think we're getting something they're not. We're not getting anything special. Time for people to stop pointing fingers and get over it.
