Seldom do you hear an elected official stand up in front of people say you made a mistake. But that is exactly what happened on Tuesday night.
The Bullitt County Public School Board members knew that the timing of the redistricting the voting precincts was wrong.
But the move was reversed, much to the pleasure of David Cross, who had bought his signs but faced the prospects of being moved to another area -- after he filed to run for the school board seat.
Board members realized that it wasn’t the right thing to do at that particular moment.
The theory is good because the population of the precincts must be more similar.
We congratulate the school board members for realizing they could have done better and opted to repeal the June decision.
