Hamilton County Schools Chief Financial Officer Tommy Kranz is leaving Hamilton County Schools, taking a job with another company in the middle of a struggle between the school board and the Hamilton County Commission over millions in taxpayer money for the schools system.

Emerson Russell, owner of ERMC, which is a local security firm, confirmed to the Times Free Press on Thursday afternoon that Kranz will be joining his staff.

Kranz said Thursday afternoon he would stay on part-time with the schools to help with the budget process and will join ERMC March 7.

Danielle Clark, spokeswoman for Hamilton County Schools, confirmed Kranz has an offer but has not submitted his resignation.

Lord, Lord! Tommy Krantz and Little Timmy "The Tool" Boyd. What a combination; two laughing stocks on one ticket. This oughta be good.

Now that's something to celebrate. I've recommended that Tommy "Smoke and Mirrors" Krantz leave the school system for almost 2 years. He's no good for Hamilton County. He helped Hamilton County wipe their rearends on the Americans with Disabilities Act. Children have suffered greatly here because of Krantz. Maybe he can take Dr. "Can't teach a dog to fetch a stick" Scales with him. Let there be rejoicing in Hamilton County. Declare a snow day or something. LOL. LOL. LOL.
