Which members of this Board are entrenched, if any?
Which members of this Board are open, or closed, to public input?

Can anyone with more insight into the members, please enlighten the rest of us who do not know as much?

Why did the Board hire a new CFO without mentioning to the public (the taxpaying public whose interests they represent) the need for a new CFO?

Why is the Board of Education of the mindset that we must 'upcycle' former city employees, to fill vacancies--

rather than hire from a broader pool of candidates?

Not sure, but I sent them all an email expressing my thoughts on this matter on Friday, and to date, the only person who has responded back to acknowledge receipt was Dawn Mullins.

Were any of the "cyberbullying" details brought to the attention privately of Board of Education members in the past year?

Am I remembering correctly that at least once, a BoE member was informed privately about the shenanigans of "Troop" posts?

Is there anyone on the Board of Education who is forward-thinking--able to be proactive rather than reactive?

It appears that they do nothing without being pushed and prodded, rather than taking the initiative.

Matt: I have not emailed any of them to express my thoughts. To be quite frank, I'm not confident any of them care what their constituents think, based on past performance and what seems to be disinterested, dismissive attitudes.

Such Hubris!

Are Kroupa and Brazeal buddies? I only ask because if they were friends or political allies in the past, then it would be roughly the same as the nepotism we had before.

Again, I am stressing that I am not making accusations, only asking questions. I just know that both of those names have been mentioned around Arnold politics for a while.

Perhaps someone will weigh in with that answer, WW. I don't know it.

I do know that these are people who begged voters to choose them for the positions they hold. They ASKED TO BE PUT THERE, and once selected-

it's been nothing but

((((crickets))))

The BoE only seems to react to pressure and scrutiny from public watchdogs and after-action criticism.

Who had the first post on this thread removed, which identified the Board of Education by name, position, and term?

Any ideas as to why the Board of Education would not want to be identified to the public, with information that is available on the taxpayer-funded Fox C6 website?

Thank you so much!

(Genuinely shocked that anyone would actually have that info removed.)

So much for 'transparency.

Also for those interested and historical purposes, the board members in 2000 when Diane Bourisaw was ousted and Dianne Brown, Brewer, Critchlow was installed were: Cheryl Herman, Carolyn Broach, Ron Counts, Don Earl, Ronald Clark, Ronald Counts and Paul Hill.

I was wondering where we could get that information. I didn't live here then but I was wondering who previous members were.

Ron Counts went from school board to the m ayor?

Brazeal went from city counsil to the school district?

Did anyone see the head of the school board on the news being asked questions?

He seemed like a deer in the headlights. LOL.

His answers were pointless.

Were Brazeal and Kroupa political allies?

Ron Counts was on the school board, the ambulance board and then became mayor. John Brazeal was CFO for City of Arnold, then City Administrator, then consultant for developers of city projects, then City Administrator, then CFO for Affton School District before coming here. I would also mention that Arnold's Chief Shocky was president of the Affton Board of Education when this hire took place. There are other pertinent connections that will all come out eventually.

Wasn't Chellew Super after Bourisaw and before BrownCritchlow? I miss Chellew's leadership very much; he was out in the schools and knew your name to say hello.

What is the difference between appointing family members high paying jobs and appointing political allies high paying jobs? I voted for Kroupa because I was sick of cronyism.

Sam, your job isn't done. We still need you.

How many board members and public officials have relatives, close friends or business associates that have been contracted for projects, hired or promoted in the school district in the last ten or so years? The type and amount of connections are very interesting.

Who else was qualified? Mr. Simpson stated on his blog that the BOE didn't publicize the position well.
