Linda Nash ended the political careers of two of her colleagues tonight. Well, that's not exactly true. She actually did it months ago. They just didn't realize it until tonight.
I find it ironic - but altogether fitting - that by agreeing with Linda, Todd and Dianne that Kelly Nash was "by far" the best candidate Ruth Ann Newman and Pete Nichols became "by far" the worst.
I would say it's time to celebrate but knowing how much harm those people have done to the lives and careers of Fox employees that trusted them to do the right thing makes me sick to my stomach. In the coming days let's adopt the kinder, gentler policy of the school board and make our vote unanimous that all cowards that hide behind closed doors and all bullies that guard them also be dismissed. Very well said, I agree the silent majority has spoken.
Maybe, CRITCHLOW/BOARD will realize they work for the taxpayers, not for their self interest. CONGRATULATIONS TO STEVE HOLLAWAY AND DAN KROUPA.
Well

Found this article to be very interesting. This is from the Washington Examiner. It seems that a McDonalds in Boston, is running a want ad for a "Cashier". It seems that one of the requirements for this postion is a "College Degree"! So our Ms Nash would not be qualified to be a McD's Cashier but, she can be a Food Services Director. Makes you think doesn't it?

One last thought. A special shout-out should go to the Troopster. His vile and angry posts did a lot to convince people that they didn't want to be associated any longer with people who attracted the loyalty of cretins like him. Plus the belief that he may be a member of the cabal shook a lot of people out of their apathy. In short, Troop remains an idiot, but in this one case he was OUR idiot.

Linda! Dianne! Happy Meals all around!

Congratulations to Steve Holloway and Dan Kroupa on their election to the Fox C-6 School Board.
I learned a lot of lessons in this, my first campaign, and made a number of new friends. I plan to become more vocal at the school board meetings over the next year. We all need to participate in the process more.
In April 2014 there will be three positions up for a vote. Time will tell if the name Mark Jones will appear on that ballot too. I wouldn't be surprised. We'll see what this next year brings us with these two new board members.
I want to thank everyone who volunteered, helped to spread the word and who contributed their hard-earned money. While the results aren't what you and I hoped for, I am thrilled that the two incumbents were replaced. In that sense, our mission was accomplished.
Now, Steve and Dan, keep your word and help bring about positive change for our school district.
God bless you all.
Very classy, Mark.
Thank you for your intention and will to serve. Good luck.

After the instructional part of that meeting was over I did some one on one with Dan Kroupa and Steve Holloway. I found them both to be very likeable and credible candidates. They both have relatives presently working in the district and both stated emphatically that if there ever arose even the appearance of a conflict of interest tha they would resign. In other words if it came up where their relative was qualified and eligible to take an administrative position then they as an active Board member would step down. I have absolutely no reason to doubt their sincerity!

So Troop, you're saying that Linda and Diane will corrupt these 2 new board members as they have done all others in the past. Just how long do you think it will be before these 2 will be beat down to the "Troika's" methods and tactics. Also, how long did it take to bring Laughlin over to the dark side?

It's hard to change a system. I hope these two new additions to the school board have what it takes to stay strong for the long haul.

That said, I also hope the community has what it takes for the long haul as well. We need to stay informed and remind these new board members, as well as every board member, why they were chosen to represent us.

There is still that little issue of qualified workers who were passed over for family members, and anyone who thinks that has now magically gone away is mistaken! I know that I will not bend on this issue and will continue to "scream" about it until this board that allowed it is removed!

I encourage everyone to email the board members and request that the assistant food service director be given the directors position and Kelly Nash is moved to another position before contracts begin on July 1st. They can still do the right thing here if they want. But it will not happen if we do not write them!

I recently had a board member tell me they did not want to "go on record" on topix because it is such a horrible place. I say they have all "gone on record" when they voted unanimously for the unqualified Nash relative! Write them....they may not answer you but they will not be able to deny the fact that the community has spoken!

Hey Trooper, when you write a post on this forum that is not insulting and crude, does it make you throw-up a little in your mouth? Did a certain lady get her panties in a bunch and give you "Cease and Desist"?

I think you have me confused with a different poster. I probably should have chosen a name that wasn't so similar.
