And you "know" all of this because...?

I don't think any of that mandated ethics training is working. What happens in executive session should remain there.

Teachers will be very excited if this is true. Dr. Mosely has been well accepted by teachers in this county, and I applaud the board for making such a decision. If Dr. Mosely comes in at 49%, then the board has saved tons of money on a Superintendent's salary. I don't think our Governor or State Reps. will touch this one.

If Dr. Mosely is hired, he will have to come out of retirement. You can't have a 49% Supt.

James Moore came out of retirement...Dr. Ouzts came out of retirement...

They then re-retire....most of them really increase their retirement...because you are paid on your highest 2 years of pay.

I know we are all entitled to our own opinions which is why we all post here. My honest opinion is that Leis is not the man for the job. 1.Do you see his community fighting to keep him there??? RED FLAG people. If a community is ready to get rid or at least accept the fact that he is leaving and not put up a fight means that there were issues that they were not happy with. 2. Once a local boy...Wow where to start with this one. Need an outsider who is not weaving a web of favors or pulling positions out of his/her family tree. 3.Dr. Mosely has done more for this system in the few months that he has been here then the other super did in how many years. getting off my soapbox now.

Yep, he's done exactly what the board has told him to do.

You really don't know Morris Leis at all do you.He is nobodies yes man.How do you know the people in Jesup are not wanting him to stay.Our board will hire a man today that has no intentions on making Douglas his home nor raise a family here.Steve Wilmoth was an outsider.How did that work out for you.Dr. Mosely is a smooth talker that has told these people exactly want they wanted to hear.Ask the people in Baunbridge and Glynn County what they think about him.The man has not been a full time super in 12 years if you want to talk about red flags.
no to anyone

For once, rj makes sense. Ive heard One of the canidates family members running her mouth not once but multiple times. Trying to rally support by bashing school system and people in it. Probably one of the many calls to rj. Plus, does seem odd that hed have so many supporters in here when hes never even worked in our system and hasnt lived here in years. Makes ya wonder how many of the posters were family. Perfect example of best intentions being not so

And how do you know who they will pick?? You're just a talking head, breathing in good air and blowing out bad!
I think ML will get the job.

The board and company will only pick someone they can control. A strong candidate strikes fear into all of those that work in that building across from Ruby Tuesdays. A good super would cut the fat in the BOE building before turning on hard working employees out at the schools.

He was a good principal in Fitzgerald, and they'd like to have him back. You'd be fortunate to have him.

compare
Mosely:
left Glynn over 9 million in debt
does not know how he spent $5,000,000 dollars (that is a lot of zeroes) in Glynn County but accepted responsibility, was criticized but not punished by the Glynn Co grand jury
works about 10 to 15 hours a week currently (do we want to pay him $150 thousand + to work part-time)
has already made some job placements that will be questioned by SACS
has been retired since 1999 (that is 12 years) and is probably not quite in tune with what is happening in today's schools
has a lot of outside interest (he owns a plantation?)
has told many if not all the system employees that he was just temporary
based on BC comments yesterday, it sounded like he applied after everyone else (37 applicants) had been reviewed - DID HE MEET THE APPLICATION DEADLINE?
Leis:
graduate of Coffee High and has an interest in serving his home town
has kin people and family friends in the system and will look at for the best interests of the schools (not be so concerned with just banking money for himself)
was rumored to have had the best interview
has been awarded by the Gov for running an excellent school system (Wayne Co which is comparable size to Coffee)
has recently served as Fitz principal and KNOWS what is going on in today's schools - does not have a 12 year gap with no experience
seems like a no-brainer but Mosely will get the job according to many because of his relationship with the BOE chair and others
What are the odds for losing accreditation?
What are the odds for a new BOE by this time next year?

RJ makes more sense sometimes than people give him credit for. To all you racist naysayers, I am a white old lady.

All this proves what most people alreadt know. CC will not be happy with anyone unless it's in the interest of certain people. For goodness sake, get behind whoever is chosen.It's not only the board members who need to grow up, stop all the fighting and get behind CC

The Coffee Taliban is the group that is calling in support for one of their own. It is funny that the people who want to run the schools with their money are the ones calling in their support of their good ol boy. Of course they are going to say he's not one of them until they get him the job. They know they can tell the board what to do.

And which board member supported Wilmoth to the end? Same one supporting this guy?
