I am a bit Leary because Ms. Roberts is being funded by the teachers union. Not because Licata does not have their support- but because I am afraid she will owe them now. Licata lost their support because he did not vote in a way they liked, is that a bad thing? I believe is was one vote they disliked. So, what happens during teacher negotiations? Their union president protects them, who will protect us? Ms. Roberts is not in a good position right now, as far as the frugal voters go. I wish she did not do this. Her credentials sound good, but now, how do you go with someone that may have to be biased? Maybe I am being dramatic, but , it seems that is how this whole school board/teacher union relationship goes. I feel like she is bought. I guess only time will tell. I just hope our children don't suffer because of decisions she made to get herself on the board. You should not be financially connected to any group- especially one that negotiates for money and benefits.
Here's the facts .the Union didn't support Licata because they can't control him, they didn't like the way he voted for the community and our kids againsty thier own self-interests. So the Union has to go to roberts as their hand-picked pabought and paid for stooge. That's a good reason for voting for licata.
another fact, when fred gives his self serving BS speeches at board meeting s it is THE TEACHERS WHO CHEER AND CLAP FOR HIM. Think about that. it is the Union that is cheering fred's version of the facts.So who is in who's pocket?
Fred gives his self serving BS speeches at board meeting???
I never attend Board meetings. The only reason I attended the Budget meeting was to get the Board to stop using over estimated expense lines to fire people, cut programs and raise taxes. My second motive was to get then to incriminate them selves. And they did! The second the budget vote is over. I will apeal to the commissioner of education.
As respects the Teacher's and parents that applauded when I spoke. They did not applaud me. They applaud the truth of my statements.
