Mr. "Chump Change" Wins It
With Only 137 Votes!
 

His voice on the BOE should be as loud as the percentage of support he got in the ballot box: nominal.

And he owes his election to SCATS!

SCATS said...

To 1:10PM ~~ With such a pitiful few votes, I'm thinking he owes it to his family & neighbors.

I voted for him because of what was said on this blog.

SCATS said...

To 2:48PM ~~ Congrats! You deserve ALL of the misery it may bring to you, too ;)

I voted No on the budget and the proposition. I also did not vote for either school board person or do a write in.

To get a little over 3,000 votes for a school budget that is over $200 million dollars does not suprise me in the least. People just don't care anymore because in spite of giving the district a billion dollars in the last decade, our academic outcomes are in the toilet. More money will not solve the educational malpractice that occurs daily in our schools.

Why bother to vote? It woon't change a damn thing. Kids still cannot read and write. Hell, they can't even sign their names in cursive when they graduate!

To $7:20PM ~~ Even Oberg himself said $500 million wouldn't put a dent in Greece's problems.

He should have been elected because of his gift of prophecy!

SCATS said...

To 9:36PM ~~ Let's hear what he predicts will be GCSD's next scandal. They are due for one.

Congrats Mr. Oberg thank you for your dedication and honesty. SCATS you are 100% correct Mr. Oberg did say $500 million wouldnt fix put a dent in the problems in Greece, Would a million $ help a person with a gambling problem? No! Why? because you did not fix the root cause!

SCATS said...

To 7:44AM ~~ So please tell us then, WHAT IS THE "ROOT CAUSE"?? Possibly the BOE??? lol They are the ones who constantly pine for more $$!! ;)

Hi. 2:48 here. Hey, if there is no "misery" (because of Oberg) will you admit (publicly) that you were wrong?

SCATS said...

To 2:39PM ~~ We're already suffering (still) from misery he created from his previous stint, so I don't see how your "suggestion" could be fairly effectuated. It's AFTER the fact on several items.

Anonymous said...

So, Oberg doesn't have a CHANCE to do anything good, then? (He's condemned before he ever STARTS?)

SCATS said...

To 4:05PM ~~ If he wanted "to do good" why didn't he get the 87 signatures needed to get his name on the ballot and campaign on a platform? Let him tell us what he thinks GCSD needs.

I'll tell you why. When he left the BOE last time, he was angry & said he was DONE, he had enough!

At this point, he's back, still angry, and has NO PLAN.

God help us all with this guy on the BOE again. What a laughing stock of a district this has become. Add to that the misery that we have at the schools and this distinct has officially become HELL.

I look forward to his mixing it up with the "ole girl's club"!

Re City newspaper this week:. Editor opines education issues in the city school district. Not the usual liberal ranting instead some facts to ponder and Greece should also pay attention.

Scats I agree with you. The person who says this blog has no impact is dead wrong. I think it could be said that 137 readers of this blog were influenced by comments made here.

SCATS said...

To 4:23AM ~~ I tend to agree.

To 5:45AM ~~ Are you calling Julia "old?"

To 5:50AM ~~ I agree. The city is LENGTHENING SCHOOL DAYS! They are concerned about teacher absenteeism. Greece NEEDS to show similar concern & take action.

To 10:09AM ~~ If as a seasoned BOE member Oberg couldn't get MOST of those on his own from friends, family & neighbors, then he just doesn't belong on the BOE!

137 votes is NOT a show of support, but a tragic commentary on this community.

Anonymous said...

To 10:09. Yup, you're right. I WAS influenced by commentsthat were made on this blog. That's why I voted FOR Oberg!

SCATS said...

To 12:12PM ~~ So you were/are under the influence? I bet we can find a twelve-step program just for you ;)

I think one of the major problems with education today is that many people do not value it, don;t see any benefit in getting involved and don;t recognize their responsibility as parents to be part of the education process. Schools cannot do it alone, teachers cannot do it alone, they need the support of parents telling their children that education is important.

Greece is a victim of a creeping urban mentality. More out of wedlock births; more people on public assistance, more of an entitlement mentality and more people not accepting responsibility for their actions and the actions of their children. These are the problems that most be addressed if education is ever to improve. But, lets not acknowledge these problems, it is so much easier to blame the BOE, administrators and teachers.

SCATS said...

To 6:17PM ~~ We're dealing with a BOE that refuses to abide by the policies they create! They are supposed to be ROLE MODELS!!

We also have teachers who can't write, spell, do basic math. Again, they are SUPPOSED TO BE ROLE MODELS!!

Administration is so far removed from the real issues they haven't got a clue and can't be bothered as long as they get their big paychecks.

Do you have an e-mail address for him??

Thanks

SCATS said...

To 5:13AM ~~ I do, but unless he writes to me requesting that I share it on here, I think I'll pass on posting it. I don't wish to be the target of his pent-up rage.
