Abbie Sancrant had a direct question for Robert Wisecarver, chair of the Davie County Board of Commissioners.
She didn’t get an answer.
During the public speaking portion of the county commission meeting on Monday night, she talked about trying to reach Wisecarver and Commissioners Mark Jones and Carl Humphrey, the three she said have been against past efforts to build a new high school.
