Monday night the board is having it's first meeting. They will vote on who is the new chairman/vice chairman.

Since Cornett is gone, that means she can't be vice chair. We all know Nelson's ego and lust for power is so large that he thinks he is the only one qualified to be chairman. The only question is, will the other three go along with his plan?

I personally think it is time for something completely different. Davis Nelson as chairman has brought us nothing but controversy. You can't blame it on Wanda Gray, because Nelson and Howard stood by Cornett no matter what she did, never made any statement to distance the board from her actions in September, and stood by her until the bitter end. Remember, it was Nelson that allowed Cornett to keep speaking when she was breaking the law on personnel and threatening people ("Let it be known....and I do not hold back." It's all on video, after all.)

If you think it is time for a change in board leadership, contact Howard, Kittle, and Sullivan and tell them enough is enough. Nelson is controversial, and the more they stick with him as chairman, the more people will complain. Howard is unqualified too, judging from the text that was published showing he micromanages staff like Cornett did.

Oh...and if you look at the agenda, they are trying to mess with public participation. I don't think for a minute this isn't some scheme Nelson cooked up to keep people from complaining publicly.

I read the agenda concerning changing the public participation. I sorta got the impression they are wanting to change the schedule of when the public can talk. I could be very wrong, though. I wonder if they are able to totally cut out allowing the public to speak?

Also, about the speech Angie gave.... even though she was talking about herself and her family, while she was sitting up at that desk, she was representing the entire board, not just herself. If she had read that speech before the meeting, that would be different. When they called the meeting to order, everything that was said up there was from the entire board even though she was the one talking.

All that is to say, the board is liable for that speech, not just her. If the person that was involved in that situation is reading this, do not let it go just because she is gone. You can still hold them accountable. Please don't let it go just because she is gone.

Public you had best be at the next board meeting! This corrupt board is now trying to be even less accountable to the public. Now they don't even want to hear from the public! The board is trying to change the board policy on public participation that has been in affect since December 2003. Now that the public has got more involved they want to change it. This is the slippery slop taxpayers we are being led down. Show up at the meeting, make sure these board members know they are accountable. This tax payer will be heard that's law and you Bartow board of education are not above any of us!

I've tried to tell everyone the past two months this board has been breaking board policy! They had back to back meeting the past two months and did not allow public participation but once! Who is going to hold them accountable for this?

Well is this a shocking turn for this bunch of clowns?
No not really. As ethically challenged as this board is do you think that (a) They care what the public thinks,(b)Adhering to Sunshine Laws,(c) Financial accountability is a priority. The answer is HELL NO.

Honestly do you think Howard,Sullivan, Kittle, and Davis along with Harper and Ambulance Chaser Boyd care. HELL NO!

The only way to fix this is to run them out, either by recall or wait until 2014 and get rid of Davis and Howard.

Redneck Angie being gone only takes out the visible element of this boards arrogance.

Show up and be heard! Makes these clowns sweat!

And a good start is to vote Matt Schultz in for post 3.

I don't think Matt will be a public embarrassment like

I do think Kittle and Sullivan care, but Howard and Nelson don't. That puts them deadlocked in a tie. Howard has hitched his wagon to Nelson and Cornett, now that she's gone, Nelson is all he has left.

If Howard "The Coward" votes for Nelson for chairman, he definitely needs an opponent in the next election.

He has gone along with all of Nelson's schemes to give the voting public the middle finger when it comes to answers and transparency. He never uttered one word to criticize Angie Cornett. My guess is Nelson is holding something over his head.

Prove us wrong, Mr. Howard, and vote for a change in board leadership.

The national average salary for court reporters is 65,000 a year. Angie use a little of that, please, and think the word Implants. Please. I mean, for God's sake, Dan Knowles has bigger titties.

Nelson has a "god complex" too. He thinks he was wronged years ago and has some kind of right to control everything in the school system.

It is time for a change. Plese, Mr. Howard, do the right thing for our school system and end the nonstop controversy by voting for ANYONE but Nelson as board chairman. If you don't, you are a big part of the problem.

Let's keep in mind that the Get Schooled blogger from the AJC is now watching us and what we do, thanks to Angie Cornett. Ms. Downey knows that this school system is in chaos but is being ignored due to Nelson being chairman of the Georgia Council for SACS. We do ourselves no favors by continuing with the obvious conflict of interest in the board chairman seat.

We're sticking with the same name we've had since August 2011, and plan to be there:). As long as our video camera cooperates, we'll try to have video up by tomorrow morning.

With three meetings in one stretch, it could be a long evening.

If you want to look at the agenda, including the proposed change to the public participation policy, it's still in our "Latest headlines" at www.bartowpolitics.com .

You will never have a better person than Mr Nelson to serve as Chairperson !
Everyone should read Mrs Sullivan article in the tribune (What a Leader).

Right, because someone who is great would be involved in the loss of $3.6 million.

And someone great would never, ever be in the middle of controversies.

Please, spare us. Nelson is a distraction, and he doesn't deserve to be chairman for four years straight. In the past the board used to rotate chairmanship. But I guess his ego is too big to allow that...
