Dear Dr. Riley,
I am writing this letter since I have still not yet received a reply from you as to the one I dated last week. We as a community were told that you were hiring a new Principal for the building, yet at the Board meeting on the 7th, you announced that Dr. Rosenbaum will still be here at continue to make $750 a day. I am very upset because we need someone for the long haul, and we need that someone now! The cost of someone for $750 a day is equivalent to $160,000 a year. Teachers have given up and don't feel they are being led. If you read the board minutes you will see nothing but problems being raised at the board meetings about the building yet Dr. Rose still is in place. Why? It is my hope that you are in the process of hiring someone immediately. If not please begin your search.

Well arent we petty?

I will get on it right away but I need to go watch Dancing with the Stars and plant some tomato plants.

Then tomorrow, I got a fishing outing with some school peeps!

Settle down there Tommy boy before I tear up your precious letter!

Enjoy the summer man!

I am impressed, but tell me, who interviewed this guy? From what I am hearing only Max Riley did. Is it true the board didn't even know about this? Is it true that this guy was also dismissed from his job three months ago? I am looking forward to meeting him.

Please tell me someone called this guy's references. He jumped from job to job within the school system, was a teacher for what? how many years? I just have a bad feeling about this. This candidate has gone from one position to the next in 5 years. I think I counted 4 different job titles for him in that time. I checked the website and his name is not even on it. Please tell me someone checked his references! His impressive resume doesn't mean he knows what he is doing, everyone can create a resume, some can even talk there way into the job, I would like to see this guy in action. From what I see it's just all a bunch of "BS" not real stuff! I urge every board member and community member to look into this. I called Dr. Riley's office and was told he wasn't in. Oh, and by the way, you still never replied or called me back about the letter I sent you three weeks ago.

I would really hope that this is not really Dr. Max Riley. ALthough I have heard several stories about your weird behavior, I don't think you would reply in this way. I do hope that several people go tonight to meet the new principal. I won't be able to make it sense I am going to be in a meeting until 6. I am sure this person is a good person, but I hope this was a decision made by a team of people and not just one person. Again I question why we are rushing to hire someone no longer working for the American School of Kuwaitt. He hasn't been there for three months and his position ceases to exist there as well, which makes me even more concerned. Why not bring back all three candidates to meet the communuity, and let the board decide? Please give this some thought before making your final decision.
