It is also time for the witch hunt to end, and for those who called certain members of the WRSDC everything from suspect to criminal to publiclyapologize to each of those members--by name--as publicly as they were inappropriately smeared. View Comment
How can this be? How can this be in a district that is allegedly run by a school committee and administration that, according only to its detractors, runs anywhere from negligent to corrupt to criminal? Pffffft!
Congratulations to the students, their parents, their teachers, the administration (including Dr. Pandiscio) and the school committee (including members Leith, Watson, and Bazinet for their decade(s) of service to making this district what it is).
Well done. View Comment
This post reminds me of an old George Carlin character who said, "I call it as I see it. And if I don't see it, I make it up."
You can't just make up a new process because you don't like the current one. There are those little problems of Massachusetts General Laws, town and RSD bylaws, and annoying stuff like that.
You still refuse to come forth with so much as a scintilla of evidence (let alone proof) of corruption or criminality. We should thus assume there is none.
All that's ever been demonstrated is that he failed to catch Peter Brennan's errors and that he's been rude. On the other hand, he helped bring this district some of the highest assessment scores in the Commonwealth at the lowest per pupil cost of any regional school district, and solidfied the WRSD's tremendous reputation.
For good or for ill, Thomas Pandiscio did not suffer fools gladly. He ruffled feathers (many of which needed ruffling), and for that you and your cronies have seen to it that this sorry state of affairs resulted in his resignation/retirement.
What a shame that this mob mentality won the day; it's the kids who will suffer. View Comment
The taxpayers' money wasn't lost, and you know it. No money is missing and neither is there two sets of books. Why do you continue to purposefully misrepresent what happened here?
I see you still haven't listed one single sliver of evidence that there is corruption in the district and that certain members of the school committee have committed it. You throw around a lot of baseless accusations against named individuals, but when it comes time to present your grounds, you suddenly go silent.
Sitting behind a keyboard and a silly name is pretty easy courage.
And this just in . . .
Las Vegas oddsmakers are putting the over/under for when the first calls come in to fire Tom Pandiscio's replacement at nine months from date of hire.
Stay tuned to this space for for further developments. View Comment
Yeah, I understand. You were building an argument that the financial mistakes of Peter Brennan must be placed in the historical context of Whitey Bulger, the Rwandan genocide and Adolf Hitler. That was perfectly clear. View Comment
More than I might want to know--right!--'cuz this thing has now taken on the proportions of Whitey Bulger, the Rwandan Genocide, and Adolf Hitler. You're irresponsible, an alarmist, or both. View Comment
No, I don't "get it"; Godwin's Law is an internet convention, mentioned in jest (or derision) more than anything else, and inapplicable in a court of law. Had I ever said it was in any way applicable there, you'd be in perfect right to criticize me, but since I never so much as hinted at such a thing, what in the world are you talking about?
But what's even sadder, joedell, is that you demonstrate that you have no idea what you are talking about, while simultaneously proclaim the situation to be a small-scale Enron. Hell's bells, were it that simple, we wouldn't need to spend a dime on any audit--forensic or otherwise--we could just ask you.
You and your running mate, Ms. VPT, are doing nothing but speculating on a subject you clearly know nothing more about than that what your fetile imaginations and fevered hopes of finding impropriety tells you.
