I wasn't referring to the bog, but to Gino's grandstanding behavior. Which continues ad nauseum.

I doubt it. Just politics and public humiliation. These days Millcreek politics are as low as they are vicious. Ronald Wilga was never called in for his deeds and Mary Ann Anderson just started work someplace else. Look what they get away with. Its frightening.

Dispositions of the two individuals mentioned above cannot be attributed to the current nine member board. They have no power to remove a sitting member. Additionally it does not appear that any criminal charges were filed by any parent, student, colleague or administrator, regarding Wilga, which would have been the only acceptable action for alleged misconduct involving students and would have removed Wilga from the board immediately if the complaints were founded. The district staff as mandated reporters of suspected child abuse are required without their own investigation to contact Child Protective Services. It stands to reason that the allegations as cited on Topix are likely to be personal and individual interpretations of information other than first hand knowledge. Brunnetti was found to be deficient as an employee in whatever capacity and his employment was terminated years ago. Wilga was found to lack necessary administrative certifications and resigned almost a decade ago. His sexual preferences are immaterial.
The district has vigorously opposed Anderson in her litigation and has no prerogative to interfere with her employment elsewhere in the interim. Kane School District could be called upon to explain their choice when resolution Is reached. A majority of the current board were not sitting when Anderson sued the district, and culpability is attributable to then board president Cobert (who aided her in her action), Millhouse and Rastater, in particular. Kramer and Palermo are not without fault. The remaining gripe about Wilga's allegiance to and association with Anderson is no longer relevant to his position as a board member. I, for one, do not support him and will not vote for his reappointment because In conversations with him I found him to be shallow, pompous and self-centered, not because of any of the statements made on Topix. I suggest everyone else arrive at their own conclusions in a similar fashion.

If you're looking for a paper trail you probably wouldn't find one. Especially when MTSD employees don't follow the mandate to report abuse. You said yourself Wilga is pompous, a cover up would fit his personality. Like Gino pointed out Brunetti's name was on the webpage for 2 years after he was fired.

I also think you are right about the info all coming from second hand observations. Sounds like other teachers and parents, but it fits with what I hear from within the district. When I asked about Dennis Brunetti I was told Wilga "lorded" over him and that he had physiological and addiction problems. Wilga used Brunetti and still does for his pleasure. Sounds like in the state Brunetti was in he would be an easy victim for Wilga. Wilga is a vile man.

I just can't believe we have a man like Wilga on the school board. And not everyone like you has access to actually speak with Wilga. He is not one to bother dealing with the public. Look how he handled Gino.

It all sounds really bad. Thats why I googled up Ron Wilga and the No New McDowell people after hearing all these things on Facebook. Especially if parents are to place trust in these people to do what is right. I think the right thing will be done. Everyone is talking now and even more are watching....

This is a reckless and irresponsible comment. School district employees across the Commonwealth must participate in annual mandated reporting training that includes explanation of the legal consequences for failure to report, such as criminal charges and employment termination. Many of us will recall as one example the highly publicized and tragic case of the McDowell student who died after being beaten by her adoptive mother. A solid record of years of complaints and reports from MTSD was presented at trial. Baseless and callous comments such as yours muddy the waters of healthy debate and dialog.

No. Smoog has a point. That is anecdotal evidence about the McDowell student and only one case of many. You don't know if they are right or wrong or if the complaint was even made to Protective Services. Its a very good point that I didn't even think of actually. The complaints were only of one year so that being the case doesn't help you or give you specific information about Brunetti. Assuming you had access to those documents. You pretend to know what those people said about Brunetti. But how would you? You know as much as any other topix bloger.

After investigation it was found Brunetti's name was listed for 2 years after he was terminated on the North Coast staff list. In fact I don't think you have very much first hand knowledge either. Unless this is Mancini's attorney and technically that wouldn't be first hand either.

Smoo is also correct. Most don't have your "misfortune" of getting to speak with Wilga to arrive at a judgement as to his validity and reliability as a director that never had qualifications. Not a good start.

There was a termination dispite Wilga's interventions to save Brunetti. There is another realistic possibility. Most parents that have students at that program they have at North Coast are families in turmoil with special needs. Such folks probably wouldn't file a complaint with MTSD or Child Services on their own so Wilga swept it under the rug to save face, but Brunetti had to go to protect the other staff with knowledge of it.

Smoog brings up some interesting points...The parents and bloggers can ask for those records in the year it happened. I'd recommend that they did.

I agree it is bad. Too many people that have no connections to one another have voiced similar concerns. The only way to solve this is to make it impossible for board members like Wilga to ever win election. We will see what happens with Golde, but remember who controls the district. The Board.

The case of the McDowell student was indeed one of many (which was my point) and details of years of reports were covered extensively by ETN.
I'm unclear as to your point about Brunnetti's name remaining on a web page staff list. Hardly seems subversive except perhaps to point out an incident of poor clerical upkeep. My daughter's school had the names of teachers still listed who had moved to other buildings. How is his name listed online suggesting some kind of wrongdoing? Wilga was long gone by then, so the failure to delete his name was under Stoops's watch. I never heard there was love lost between Stoops and Wilga.
I don't represent Mancini or any other MTSD employee, but I believe her to be knowledgeable and competent. I do not think taxpayers should pay any more of her second attorney's fees but I sympathize with her plight for incurring them as a result of halting Anderson's blatant fiscal mismanagement. The district is better off with Anderson gone.

You do so at your own peril because the first thing Gino will do is go to the media. He is on TV more than the president of that board! This will then give the public the idea that MTSD is trying to infringe on Gino's rights as a taxpayer and private citizen. The ensuing whirl of media attention and popular opinion would overwhelm MTSD or the Board member leveling the lawsuit. Cast the district in a dim light and be painfully revealing beyond audits or PDE involvement. This would bring down whoever brought the suit. Its suicide. And very bad for Millcreek.

As to Golde and the rumor that he is on leave due to an STD flaring up, this audit, or some unkown board member leaking acts of maleficence it is directly a cause of the lack of real and true information.

Wasn't implying school people might sue just that his accusations and rumors could lead him to trouble. He certainly likes to throw around a lot of info without facts or evidence.
