Hairston says he's planning to leave the system
I emailed Joe A. Hairston this afternoon and asked him whether he might want to comment on his future plans. He sent back an email that said he had never intended to seek another term. That was interesting given the fact that he wasn't willing to comment earlier on the week and told WBAL he had until February 1 to announce a decision. So I wrote a story saying he didn't plan to stay past June. He has not yet talked to school board members, his staff or the county executive, so I was a bit surprised at the response.
