When Chartrand does something it’s okay but when Brown does something it’s offensive.
I am not a fan of either Chartrand or Brown but it’s just an example of how the city works.
When Chartrand who doesn’t even live in Jacksonville but has collected school board members like kids used to collect baseball cards wrote a letter to the board while he was the chairman of the state board of education requesting they drop out of a law suit questioning the states voucher system, he was greeted with a collective shrug by the school board and superintendent.
However when Representative Corrine Brown went to a school board meeting and questioned the district’s plan to radically transform seventeen schools with limited community involvement the superintendent characterized her visit as offensive to some board members.
I will let you be the judge about what is offensive.
