Broward County School District has a chance to remake its self!
The children and parents of Broward County urge you not to squander this opportunity to better the education of our children.
Now is the time to stop the back room dealing and deals that do not help to educate our children. We have a new superintendant and We urge you to let him do his Job the way he sees fit. You hired the man now get out of the way and let him do what he was hired to do. If this means he wants to get rid of senior school district staff you should back him up. We can get better people for less money and put more teachers back in the class room. There is no reason for the Broward school district to be the 2 largest employer in Florida other than waste due to people not doing their job. You need to stop the practice of having each dismissed work appear before the Board to be fired. How well do you think any company with more than 1000 workers would run if every dismissed worker had to go before the board of directors?
Furthermore we urge this School Board to immediately vote to have the counties ethics rules apply to you. We are tired of looking at campaign finance reports that read like a who’s who of school board suppliers and lobbyist’s. So what if it’s legal to take their money it does not pass the sniff test and it’s time to get the stink out of this building. If you’re not up to the job resign, quite and flee the state. Both the State and federal Governments have active investigations going regarding your conduct and practices.
Our Children deserve the best education we can give them, yet fully half of you don’t get it because you are still supmitting expenses to drive to meetings. Furthermore I demand that the district investigate both ANN MURRAY and Ben Williams for expanse account fraud regarding there mileage reimbursements. I
I respectfully request that the new super institute a police that requires as per IRS regulation that each trip you seek milage for have a a starting car mileage and one at the end of each trip as the law requires. I will be turning those of you who seek this reimbursement into the IRS and asking that they request your mileage logs as the records clearly show that you are padding your mileage. Also none of you should be asking our kids to pay for your tolls. There are plenty of routes to get to the places you need to go without taking a toll road. It’s not the kids faults yet you are hurting them by your own greedy practices.
It’s time for you to roll up your sleeves and start doing what you were elected to do. While it is true that most of you were elected in a single district. You took an oath of office to serve the Children and people of Broward County not the lobbyist, not the builders, not your friends, not the voters in your district just the citizens and children of Broward County.
Perhaps you should start each meeting by reciting your oaths of office as it appears most of you have forgotten what you were elected to do!
