Jim Willis only reason for taking the Utica Superintendent's job is to pad his pension and thereby move back to Long island where he still owns a home!!!!

I don't think Willis has been in his position long enough to make a decision about him yet. My question is why does the school district hire people who are not from this area. There has to be someone who has been an assistant principal for years in the Utica School District that is qualified. YOu mean to tell me there is no one in the School District that can handle that job. That is hard to believe. It is all political. The School Board members are a bunch of idiots!!

Why go to a Board meeting packed with Carmela Brown's flunkies and have to listen to all their crap? All she did was piss off the Board who saw thru this staged love fest and will deal with her in May. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK MR. WILLIS !

He can't name them until he goes through the motions of firing, posting, interviewing and recommending. All in good time. Be patient.

How ironic that Willis has not been here long enough to make a decision about him YET he made a decision in one month to fire three people. Who are these people we invite to run our district?

Why is Jim Willis selling the vacant land of former Lincoln Elementary School,The city of Utica is already short of land for future school construction, since the school already owns this land why not keep it for future construction projects!!!!!!

A lot of qualified people applied for this job but didn't even get interviews, or even rejection letters telling them that the position had been filled. i know that for a fact.

I was informed that Jim Willis applied for The New Hartford Superintendent Position when it was available, however, the New Hartford Board of Education decided to select someone else because he lied on his Resume by embellishing his qualifications!!!!!!!
