Regarding the discussions about the Rose Hall District School Board Appointment:
I am not pleased that discussions continue to take place behind closed doors. Ms. Hughes, Ms. Weems and I tried to get the discussions to take place in the open, but our colleagues prevented that from happening yesterday.
There is some funny stuff going on behind the scenes.
Joel McDonald is the prior board member who had to vacate the seat because he moved out of district and didn't notify anyone. He was posting on FB Tuesday night that Mr Mullins wouldn't be accepting the position and that an emergency meeting of the school board would be called on Wedn.
Mr Mullins sent his notification to the Board at 7:28am Wedn morning.
As a Board member I knew NOTHING about this until Wednesday. I have been told that Kelly Walker was involved in discussions with Mr. Mullins. Why is the VBEA (aka teacher's union) President involved in this??? It is interesting that Mr. Mcdonald was at an event at the VBEA office on Tuesday night.
Was there a secret behind the scenes effort with the VBEA to get Mr. Mullins appointed and ask him not to run in the special election in November?
Mr. McDonald is planning to run in the special election in November. Is there an effort to insure that he is the favored candidate??
