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.
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.
