Banwart: I'm happy with judge's decision; he ruled wisely
Joplin R-8 Board of Education member Lynda Banwart, who fought for the Jasper County Commission to appoint three new board members, was pleased with Judge Joseph Hensley's decision this morning that left the Commission's choices firmly in place.
Banwart told the Joplin Globe, "I'm happy with the way that Judge Hensley gave it due diligence and ruled very wisely," which seems to indicate that if Judge Hensley had ruled any other way, she would have said he ruled very foolishly.
