I am appalled by the recent actions of the four mavericks on the Breckenridge School Board that opted not to extend Superintendant East's contract for one more year. Finding a quality superintendant to lead any school district is very challenging, but to find one of East's caliber for a rural school district is simply unheard of. In light of all that has happened the only appropriate action for board members Haiby, Radig, Fronning and Sayler is to step down from their posts. If the legal and ethical violations were not enough to ask them to step aside, certainly the fact that they are retaliating against Superintendant East ought to be. Quite frankly, I believe residents of the school district out to be outraged and recalling these four board members. Like it or not, Superintedant East is being retaliated against for bringing to light the legal and ethical violations of the Board. With legal fees already costing the District thousands of unbudgeted dollars, I am left asking myself how it will afford defending itself when Superintendat East files a whisleblowing lawsuit against the district. Yikes!

East isn't going to file a "whisleblowing lawsuit against the district as he is much a crook as the rest of the board.

Further more, they already have Timothy Fox, Wilkin County States Attorney and who also serves as the City of Breckenridge attorney cover their butts, as he already informed East of a investigation possibly being had in a previous news article.

Sorry, but Fox already made sure to inform them to cover their "illegal" tracks.
