Scott Shine represents the NRA and special interests, not his constituents.

J.C. Chris you write about Scott Shine a lot. I know, I know and I wish I didn’t have to and I seriously look forward to the day when I won’t have to anymore.


Seriously though google his name and set the filter to a week. He’s quoted in more articles than all the other school bard members combined. He is without a doubt a media insert your word here, and you will see he gives me plenty of fodder. 


So I have long covered how Shine has never met a charter school he didn’t like, putting them ahead of his constituents, well now we can add the NRA to that list of special interests he serves.  


Despite saying he was against arming teachers he voted against a resolution that was against arming teachers.


From the Times Union:


Scott Shine was the only board member to vote against the district’s resolution. He said that although he is against arming teachers or other school staff, the proposed law change would leave it up to school districts to decide.

“I don’t want to take a position of saying no to what the legislature is doing when other districts want to do this,” Shine said, referring to Putnam County, which announced last week that certain district employees would be trained and armed with concealed weapons.
Oy vey, what he didn’t want to do was take a position against the NRA who I have recently learned he is an instructor for.
Later he called into First Coast Connect to defend his position. He however would not take any questions and the media panel was pretty unforgiving.
Check out the recording at about the 20 minute mark.

Can somebody explain to me why Shine voted against this resolution? Is he just being a contrarian does he really believe the stuff that comes out of his mouth? He’s against arming teachers but he doesn’t want to put it on record in a vote. At least this self proclaimed firearms instructor remains in good standing with the NRA who are always looking to expand their market share.

Mr. Shine is a terrible representative of the people because he only represents his and his donors interests not the peoples.


District 2, you can and must do better.
