Well, if this doesn’t get this patriot fired from posting, nothing will.
Welcome friends. Welcome to another year of charades from our Board of Education, the superintendent, and others. I am seriously looking forward to some sanity on the Board of Commissioners. It will be a genuine breath of fresh air!
Now to my point: I’m sort of sure the Chamber of Commerce doesn’t like the way we’ve been put on the map, but then again, neither do the taxpayers. Somebody come clean about Ashley and the “weapon” is what I’ve been saying all week to my significant other. And for the school board to just stay quiet until the national media gets involved, is predictable. Not only did they stay too quiet, then they espoused anger at the media! Another example of shoot the messenger, not the message. I think we’ve seen so much of that around here already.
Kudos to the Sanford Herald for sticking to their story and the reason behind it. Thanks Bill and Billy!
Strangers are irate. My in-laws say we are baffoons up here. Geez! What a first impression to the rest of the world.
But let’s take this a bit further. Seems our “let’s vote him in before vetting” superintendent has a tendency to want to prove a point. Just read Sunday’s Herald. He was hired way too soon after the last disgraced superintendent had to resign. I’m not the only one thinking that.
It also appears Mr. Moss believes he has an open-ended checkbook when it comes to your dollars. He cries about laying off poor teachers while hiring at Central Office. Hmmm. According to the Beaufort Observer, the local paper in Beaufort County, that’s a precedent as well. Of course, he isn’t the end all to the give-aways. Blame past county commissioner and school boards for saying “here get what you want”!
Here’s some 2008 articles pulled from the Beaufort Observer.
Please read below and make your own observation (no pun intended).
Jeff Moss has bankrupted our school system…in more ways than one while the school board and county commissioners fiddle while Rome burns
Editorial note: This article was written before the Lee County Board of Education voted to offer Moss the superintendency there. We continue with it here in the hopes that it will help our school board and county commissioners learn something from this tragedy.
Beaufort County and the Beaufort County Schools are in serious financial trouble. The County because of the school system. Here’s the situation in an oversimplified nutshell:
Moss leaving for Lee County as schools face potential financial crisis
Beaufort County Schools are losing Supt. Jeff Moss at a time when they are one major emergency away from insolvency.
I’m just curious as to why the Lee County Taxpayers, the ones who pay his salary, were not informed of this BEFORE he was hired. As with our commissioners and anyone else in public office, we have a right to know. (Added by editor: I meant anyone in that KIND of office that has say over where our tax dollars need to go.)
Oh well, a day late and a dollar short for us – AGAIN.
