I spoke to Walter Petty and Brian Bock this afternoon (at an event for the New Willow Oak Montessori School). They were surprised by Sally Kost's statement, and emphatically agree with Mike Cross and David Hamm that the relationship between the school board and county commissioners is very good. The biggest difference in Brian's mind (and I have heard David say this as well) is the regular meetings between the board chair, the superintendent, and the chair of the commissioners. They have open discussions so that there are no surprises. That practice started when Brian became chair of the commissioners.

Pardon me if I don't side with Kost/Caddy.  They have too many axes to grind.

Thanks Mia.

Belle is cranky and cannot discuss anything without getting personal about it. The best thing we can all do is ignore her posts and not respond.

Back on topic, Lesley Landis posted the defense of her husband on the Chatlist this morning. She said even children ask questions to clear things up.

If she saw how his email is worded it is not a question it is a demand and saying how dare you vote them an award.

When so many different people question your intentions, including the recipient BOE, you were either very unclear, or it was taken exactly how you meant it.

Randy Voller & Lesley Landis are two partisan political hacks that just don't get it. Closed mined individuals that put politics before our children.

From the Chatlist -

Date: Mon, 22 Oct 2012 16:27:10 -0400
From: Lesley Landis
Subject: On asking questions

Q: "Why do you ask so many questions?"
A: "Because that's how I learn things."

This exchange is from a story that is told often in our family. It occurred when one of us was young, but questioning and learning doesn't stop at childhood. So I'm perplexed when people who ask questions are ridiculed and held up as bad examples.

My husband, Randy Voller, chair of the local Democratic Party, asked School Board Chair David Hamm, about the Board of Education's nomination of the Board of Commissioners for an award. It was a reasonable question because the platforms of the Democrats and Republicans differ on so many issues surrounding public education, charter schools, vouchers, funding cuts, and a host of other issues that are important to the community. Mr. Hamm answered him in detail and Randy thanked him for the information (that part was left out of the notes that were posted). So what's the big deal? Why all the drama from The Conservative Voice in today's Chatlist?

I expect all of us and our leaders to ask questions, to gather information and to seek to better understand points of view so we can think critically and be more effective in our decision-making. That's how we move forward and isn't that a good thing?

Another email from the Chatham chatlist -

Date: Mon, 22 Oct 2012 08:39:24 -0400 (EDT)
From: Colin Coxall
Subject: RE: Thank you for standing up out of interest for the children!

As an independent, unaffiliated voter, I am also pleased to have been the Treasurer of the PAC that worked to successfully elected three of the current five members of the Chatham Board of Commissioners (BOC).

This exchange is a very good example of both Parties working together, even though the BOC and the Board of Education (BOE) are each controlled by the Republicans and Democrats. The Republican BOC fiscal policies are working in Chatham County, and some of the Democratic controlled Boards have appreciated and acknowledged the fine work the BOC has done to maintain both costs and services for our citizens. This irks the local Democratic leadership, and especially the current Mayor of Pittsboro and Chair of the Democratic Party, Randy Voller, who have worked hard to sabotage the BOC efforts and spread false statements on the Commissioners' achievements.

They have put party politics before the needs of the electorate. I commend the members of the BOE in standing by their decision without bowing to party political pressure.

Subject: Good for you David Hamm!

Thank you David Hamm for taking a stand for the school children of Chatham County.

Thank you for understanding that all of us, Democrats & Republicans and Independents, have to work together to make our schools better for our children. As you eloquently pointed out: "Democrats and Republicans alike have a sworn duty to provide for the schools."

Thank you for putting a pompous little big man in his place.

Is has become more apparent to us all that Randy Voller is simply a political partisan hack who wants to use the children as pawns in his political scheming.

Here's a link to the county press release about the nomination.  It's typical for the county to send out releases such as this for nominations and awards.

http://www.chathamnc.org/index.aspx?recordid=3824&page=19

As to the timing of the award, apparently this is when the nominations are due, so the election cycle has nothing to do with it.

As to why the Democrats would question the award when their candidates are recipients of it, you'd have to ask Sally.  Not only did she make the remarks at the forum Saturday about how the award was an "olive branch" but she has quite a bit on her website about how bad the relationship is between the school board and board of commissioners.  She spent a lot of her time at the forum attacking her fellow commissioners.

That is a shame that she has to bash her co commissioners. Maybe they can leave her off the award if they get it.

After reading all of this: Ugh! No, wait, I have something more profound: Voller is a dolt.

Much better.

Come tell him that at the Pittsboro Street Fair on 10/27.  I'm sure he'll be there; he was last year, and made it a point to avoid me.  Chances are he'll be in the CCDP booth, if there is one.
