Burke is fighting a bully. Farmington has a superintendent that retaliates against anyone who disagrees with me. You talk about roles models for the kids - do we really want someone like leading our schools? The sad part is that several members of this board ran on the solving the issues with the administration, but were soon indoctrinated to the superintendents way to running the show. While Burke clearly isn't the most upright in the way he handles the situation, at least he doesn't back down to the bully!
Anyone who disagrees with Meeks, that is.

Burke was elected with one other elected member (Singewald)and one appointed member (Walter)who seemed to be on the same page of getting rid of the "old boy network." Since that time Singewald led the charge on this investigation and Walter was the target of Burke's three newly elected members from the past election. With Singewald and Walters working very close with Burke and both of them apparently seeing how the real Burke works and running as far away from his as possible, what does that tell the community? I hope these three new members realize who they got in bed with sooner than later for good of the children of that district.

And how do you know Meeks is a bully? Where, exactly, do you get your information - from Burke's website? If that's the information you're relying on you need to get informed with the facts!

For anyone who wants to know the truth, here it is: An outsider who only wanted to get truthful information from school administators invaded the good-ole-boy domain, and it wasn't appreciated. He was voted onto the board by a wide margin because he uncovered and publicized the lies being told about a proposed "sportsplex" several years ago that went down in flames after it was exposed what the board was trying to foist upon the people. The people wanted someone who would force this bunch of clowns to be honest to the public. This is nothing but payback, before the new board is sworn in, while the lame-duck board still has the power to make things miserable for him. Period.
You truly do not have a clue what you are talking about! Number one, he (you) wasn't elected by a "wide margin". He (you) got more votes than anyone else in a race that had horrendous voter turnout. He (you) uncovered nothing and the only lies being told were the ones that he (you) tells the few clueless supporters that are left. The majority of the community knows Burke for what he is and has been since his days on the Grand Forks City Council - a power hungry, bitter, obstructionist, bully.(The parenteses are because the original post sounds an awful lot like the person who is being discussed here - not being forthright with the identity perhaps?)

I do not believe he received the most votes in that election.
