Editor, Commonwealth:

In response to the comment made by Leflore County Supervisor Robert Collins following my speech Sept. 25 to the Greenwood Voters League (“School board, supervisor candidates speak,” Sept. 27):

Mr. Collins was quoted as saying that he had nothing to do with the day-to-day operations at the Unit System and that I was responsible for the condition District 5 is in today.

I qualified to run for District 5 supervisor on Jan. 16, and I was removed from District 5 and assigned to work at the Unit System Jan. 17. It’s been more than eight months since I worked in District 5.

I’m just saying.
