Two school board members in less than a week. A lot of people might think I am doing something right.
A little while ago I received the following not from Mr. Shine, that was also forwarded to the county's personal director and a city attorney.
You have made false comment in your blog alleging (in your written word and with my specific name) that I have made comments on your article to which I did not make. I believe you are, again, in violation of the professional standards of the DCSB and I am demanding that you remove all reference to me and articles referencing me on your blog at once. Failure to do so will result in an official complaint of violation of professional standards.
Duval County School Board - Dist 2.
Yesterday I wrote:
Shine was indeed a busy boy last night and I believe this includes the following comment left on my blog. It was sent anonymously but it echos things he has said to me in the past.
You deserve to lose your job, be sued for what little money you have and should NEVER be able to teach again. I'll gladly write a substantial check to the attorneys who end up pursuing you in court. This is not journalism, this is bitterness for losing your School Board bid several years ago and an ego-boost. Give up. You don't care about JAX kids, none of these posts actually assist teachers and parents in providing resources to help improve the system. It just gives you the attention you crave so much. SCUM.
Full disclosure, I edited and added to the original post "It was sent anonymously" in the first paragraph and "whether he sent above or not" in the third in an abundance of caution. I thought it was pretty clear I wasn't saying he sent it but just sounded like him but hey if a school board member can't figure it out I guess there may be others.
Just to remind you what Scott Shine has said to me in the past.
Just an fYI on the social media policy, this was proposed as a policy addition from Dr. Vitti and was taken up by your liberal friends on the board in the policy review subcommittee (against my wishes)a month ago. They were unanimous in moving it to next years employee professional standards. So, you only have a few months to add to your resume of false and reckless statements. Sadly, I did not even get a chance to vote on it. So, give your thanks to Hall, Wright and Couch for the "anti-Guerrieri" code of conduct addition next fall. While I am highly disappointed I did not get in on the action, and still want to bring it forward as a policy addition as originally submitted by the superintendent, so it can take affect in before the end of this school year.
Then check out the comments on these blogs
Then in Florida Politics he called me a liar.
I believe the voice is the same and lets face it, who else reads my blog that can afford to write a substantial check?.
I replied to Mr. Shine saying.
Two more things:
There is a difference between writing a lie and writing something somebody doesn't like.
And I will say it again, If Mr Shine doesn't like what is written on the blog, about what he says, the associations he has, or his performance on the school board he should grow a thicker skin or change those things.
