August 22, 2019 – Kewaskum, WI – “It’s for the kids.” We always hear that from the administration and certain board members; and what does that really mean? Well if you’re in Kewaskum School district it means they spent thousands of dollars on lawyer fees and wasted administration’s time to persecute board members they don’t agree with.
We were told by the new board president that we wouldn’t do this anymore and we want to be open and transparent. But once again it’s the same old same old, just like it was from the last board president.
When asked why are you attacking board members again and wasting taxpayers money on lawyers fees, it was explained that it was important to do this.
When I asked why we can’t go through our expenses line by line to explain how we are spending tax dollars, I was told it would cost too much and a waste of the administrator’s time.
This is our money and we should know why it’s getting spent certain ways.
In the April election, you the Public spoke and wanted change. I’m sad to say that even though myself and two other board numbers are trying our best, there has been no change.
We truly have an opportunity for change as we have an open seat now on the board. But before the interview process even began, one board member announced the old candidate that lost, should be reappointed to the board.
This is the same board member that mocked and ridiculed you, the voting public, for your decision in April.
We truly do need to make a change with our administration and with our Board President that tells us one thing and does another.
Please join me in the interview process so we can make sure we have the right people in the right place.
I write this letter in the spirit of my first amendment right and not as a board member.
