Saw that Middleton took full advantage of his latest PR opportunity at the Newport City Building today. He sure can sniff out when he can swoop in and get a shot with the kids so he looks engaged and caring. Truth is - he is all about IMAGE. There is NO substance there. Did his photo appear on his FB or Twitter feed yet? The man can't even look you in the eye. My Mammaw always said - never trust a man who can't look you in the eye. This man must have a lot he feels guilty about.
how many

Really. When does he ever talk to kids besides photo ops? He never speaks a word to the kids, staff or teachers in school but he is there if there is a PR opportunity. Wake up Newport! He is Brandt, Jr!

Now you got one who is all about making those "cameo" appearances to get his photos taken. Still same result - nothing. He wouldnt show up if he couldnt get a photo for twitter.

You're right...Middleton never misses a photo op! Newport...the world...revolves around him. Haven't seen much of him doing anything to help the education of the kids yet. Looks like pretty easy work to get $174,000 and all the perks...ride buses, buy trash cans, etc. I think I could handle that!

I thought the same thing at the beginning of the school year, but things at the schools I am involved with have gotten worse. I feel like the high school is not preparing my child for the demands of college or life, it's kind of a joke, and the Intermediate School is a disaster. I have yet to hear any real answers from him or his cabinet ... data boards... seriously?!?! They have been used for the past couple of years. Where is the real change? His photo ops are all about his "positive gossip" and I think we all know that you can't trust gossip!

The high school is worse than a joke. And you are 100% right - your child is NOT being prepared for a job, let alone college. Only a small handful of Newport graduates actually graduate from college. PITIFUL

He's doin a good job, I would even say a GREAT job! Why do all you Nancys hang onto every action and then assign bad motive? If he wasn't there, you'd be lamblasting him for not attending! His only care in the world is for the schools, it's his calling and passion. I don't know anyone who works harder or cares more, and he does it all without financial incentive. He doesn't get paid extra to show up and encourage, he does it because it's in his HEART. I wish the topix members cared half as much as he does, the city would be better for it!

Without financial incentive?????? What do you call his 170,000 yearly salary? What an idiot... Only calling he has is his ego.

You are full of it. Talk about being stupid. Middy is a user plain and simple. He isnt worth $120,000. Overpaid. Over rated. You will figure this out soon enough. His history in Mason doesnt lie.

Is he speeding to and from Mason county getting any more speeding tickets? How many since he became Sup in Newport? Check his reimbursement requests. Bet Newport is paying for all that.

Seriously?!?! You had better wake up! At one of the Council of Councils meetings he passed out documents "referencing" how much money had has saved the district. Then decided there was actually a couple of 1000 dollars more, asked for the documents back (He and Taylor counted them to make sure no one left with one). A day or 2 later the investigation results from Mason Cty. were released. Something is not right here folks and as far as I have found the document was never released again. These schools need help, real help, not PR. And what about Tyndall? She is marrying the biggest theif from Mason Cty, came to Newport for a big raise and the presentations I have seen her do at the primary School and Board meetings were nothing new. Yay for the book rooms, but ask a teacher if the books in those rooms actually meet the needs of all of their students.

Sorry! I work there. Even when I see him, he won't talk to me, even if I speak first. I am nothing to him. I also have 2 kids in Newport schools.

He's going to have to at least speak to us, if he wants our support.

I contacted him about one of my kids. Didn't even get an answer.

He is here for the $.
