The interviews for the OSSB are today.8 people have applied for consideration.Sharon Walker has been on this board for over 16 years.We need to contact ALL of the Aldermen and ask them to thank her for her service and not consider her for another term.You can access all of the contact information on the OS city website.Please take the time today to let them know we do not want Sharon Walker back on this board.

Thank you for the update! Any idea who the forerunners are? I hope it is actually someone with children IN the schol system, someone who truly has an interest of the kids.

The top three selected were Hebert,White and Wrigley who was the first one nominated for the board seat.She failed to get a majority.Then a motion was made for Hebert and he failed to get a majority.White was then selected after much discussion.John Gill made the motion to nominate Wrigley,did not vote for Walker.They were not supposed to vote until the City meeting tonight but after talking decided to vote last night.One Alderman stated he wanted to go ahead and vote because he did ot want to get 50 calls today(Ha Ha) Many said they felt Walker would be reappointed. She had the other school board members calling the Aldermen to lobby for her,some such as Taranto attended the meeting to support Walker.The People spoke and the Aldermen listened and should be thanked.Greg Denyer was totally neutralized even though he worked behind the scences to get Walker reappointed.

So the two we need oust next for supporting Walker, against constituent wishes, is Taranto and Gill?

Got it.

Taranto is on the school board.His current term expires next year.Gill did note vote for Walker.The person to retire from the BOA in the upcoming elections is Denyer for starters.We need to see who voted for Sharon Walker last night and look them over real good.I believe anyone that is aligned with the Walkers is vulnerable.

I called someone who went and was told that Gill did vote for Walker when the board reduced the list from 9 to 3. Walker was one of his 3. She didn't make the list, so he switched his vote to Wrigley. John also told a friend of mine that he was voting for Walker because it was an election year and the Walkers were going to help him. Denyer might have worked on him, but Denyer decided he better not vote in the matter because he and his daughter worked for Bill Walker. There was a sheet of paper that each aldermen voted on. It is a public document if you care to know who your alderman supported. James Rickets recorded how each person voted.

It is recorded on his sheet. You only need to request a copy. Better yet just ask James Rickets.
