When we first launched this blog, nearly a year ago, we “founding fathers” committed ourselves to finding and publishing the truth. Granted, most of us can rightfully be accused of presenting those truths from a perspective of social and fiscal conservatism. We are unapologetic for that. Still, we wish not to publish false or intentionally misleading statements no matter what our worldviews and value systems might be. When we err, as occurs from time to time, I challenge each of us to own up to the mistakes and correct our posts acccordingly.
In that vein…
School Board Official John Bonardi called one of our founding fathers this morning to correct some errors found in the post from author Thomas Jefferson. After some cursory early investigation, we have determined at least most of what Mr. Bonardi reported is true and accurate. Accordingly, I have edited Mr. Jefferson’s original “Wanted!” post from this morning to correct a couple of mistakes. I hope we can affirm the remainder of items Mr. Bonardi reported, and when we do, I will ensure we apply further corrections (or at least a proper disclaimer) to Mr. Jefferson’s post.
On behalf of all the authors at Lee County’s Top Political Blog, I apologize to Mr. Bonardi for TJ’s earlier errors reflecting Mr. Bonardi as being among our absent group of school officials. I hope he can forgive us this transgression.
