Scott Shine says, receiving a text is a firing offense.

Oy vey, I can’t make this stuff up.

Last week when the text Connie Hall wrote about the superintendent
came out, Scott Shine had an inexplicable reaction. He demanded that the
employee that received the text should be fired.

From news4jax:
Shine said he wanted
the board to be issued county phones so all texts will be public record. Shine
also said he’d like to see the district’s auditor, Michelle Begley, fired.
“She is a board
auditor. She is not supposed to play a partisan role,” Shine said.
Um, how is receiving a
text partisan?
The Times Union also
reported that he felt Michelle Begley was biased towards, Hall, Wright and
Couch and thus aganst him.
Interestingly
these are the same board members Shine called liberal in a comment on the blog Education Matters earlier in the week.
I
could not pick Begley out of a line up. Though I would like to suggest that if
she is biased towards the three above mentioned board members maybe it’s
because they are informed, and are trying to improve our schools or you know
the exact opposite of Shine.
Regardless
if she is or isn’t should somebody be fired for receiving a text? A text from
their boss?
Shine
is proposing new rules to limit what employees can say and do. He has taken the
old adage, if you can’t beat them join them, to if you can’t beat them get rid
of them.
This
is just another example of Shine attacking somebody that they don’t like. That’s what bullies do. It’s personally
embarrassing to me that a person like this is on the board.

We
need and deserve better.
