But you just stated that Malone was the "defacto leader" of this district. Therefore he is responsible for all that has occured in the district. That would be even more reason to put him on the board since during this "defacto leadership" all these wonderful things everyone thought the BOE was doing was actually controlled by his hand.
Malone for BOE!
Those great things, that you are finally now acknowledging, occurred IN SPITE pf Mr. Malone's lack of cooperation or leadership in the right direction.
Mr. Malone chose to spend his most precious resource, his professional reputation, seeking accolades from his students and those employed below him.
