Seriously Laura, your leading your minions down the wrong path. Going after Chris Fatta, really?? Confucius says "there is nothing more dangerous than a man who has nothing to lose." Do you really want to reopen that door?

Hopefully a new strong, competent and respected leader will step in and regain control. Fatta and Russom are probably having a well deserved laugh!

Fatta is too busy with his new career in asbestos abatement and Russom is busy enjoying "retirement". If they know what is really going on, where did they hear it?

I think where they heard it is of little importance. The main thing is that they are both lucky to be out of this zoo. As I said, I hope a new fresh face can restore some semblance of sanity.

How are you going to get a qualified new, with the legend that has been created? We will get the bottom of the barrel, a person nobody else will hire, a yes person, who knows he or she must bow to this board or also be gone.

If I was a super in a school with years of experience, I would apply, do nothing, hope to be fired and get a great nest egg. If not fired take it easy get 150 k plus bennies.

What a snake's nest has been fostered in this freaking district. I hope the mugwumps who live here have figured out that they really screwed the pooch when they forced Russom and Fatta out last year.

How right you are told you so, and now it appears to be a classic case of "what goes around comes around."

Would be glad to ask former employees at Northville and OE about both of them....no question that the large majority would say they respected both of them, not even a close vote. It doesn't matter now, they were lucky to have escaped the OESJ zoo.

Witchiepoo, you are a pig! Fatta handled that whole disgusting show with class and grace. We'll see where Laura ends up in the next few months, eh? Fatta shows his face proudly in public, as well he should. It's the scumbags from the other SJ board that did him wrong, michel, and laura that should hang their heads in shame.

You can call me whatever you want.The fact still remains that Dan Russom and Fatta did not act professional.They were not sitting around the campfire with friends when the remarks were made.They were with teachers who just met both of them and deserved the same respect they gave to Russom and Fatta.Fatta laughed it off and Russom laughed all the way home to retirement!If that is the way you think administrators should act,then I feel sorry for you.Respect is earned and they both got what they deserved.The fact that they got fingered was their fault,not the ST.J teachers.

#1 The comment was not even meant for the one that got her feeling sooo hurt.

#2 She's not that good looking in the first place. Her bitchy personality hurts her looks greatly.

#3 Seriously learn to take a compliment. I understand you people probably don't get a lot of them, but really.

#4 it was a social event. Yes, it was inappropriate. But really, look how your whining has spiraled out of control. I hope your happy.
I was there

I don't want people coming after me, but I was there! You, on the otherhand, were not. Fatta didn't laugh it off....in fact, he was the only one that commented that "he wouldn't have made those jokes." You want to go after Russom, fine. Leave Fatta out of it. Laura was threatened by him and took her opportunity to clear away a pathway for the Superintendent position as well as secure sliding back into her old job by defaming Chris Fatta....glad he got away. This place is a mess. If you are out there reading this, Mr. Fatta, you were great to work for!
