Peter Maier has added some PRIORITIES FOR YEARS AHEAD to his campaign web site. I recommend reading them; they're pretty funny. It's all of the stuff that he refused to do for the past three years.
Sherry Carr counts setting goals as an achievement. This is exactly the cognitive delusion that plagues the District. They cannot distinguish between setting a goal and meeting a goal. They set it, and then they celebrate it as if they had achieved it. After the celebration they have no interest in actually working towards it. Director Carr also claims that she has "demonstrated fiscal responsibility". I wonder if she is thinking more about the millions pissed away on pet projects while cutting supports in classrooms, the millions pissed away closing and re-opening schools, the millions pissed away in the RSBDP, or the millions pissed away with the below-market sale of MLK Elementary. Nice fiscal responsibility. She also claims to have demonstrated leadership. This is the kind of leadership in which you do everything the superintendent tells you to do without questioning it. She also claims that the District has increased accountability in the wake of the RSBDP scandal. Really? Then why did they repeat all of the same mistakes with the Urban League again? Services started before the contract was approved, the invoices are vague, and the monthly invoices are all for the same amounts. What lessons were learned?
Harium Martin-Morris has identified his priorities and, like Director Maier, they are all of the things that he has obstinately refused to do for the past three years. He says he wants to streamline board policies to make them more enforceable, but he refuses to enforce them. He says that he wants to improve communication with the public, but he's the one who is refusing to communicate. He says he wants to support alternative schools but he has been damaging them and has closed two. He says he wants to ensure we have capacity, but he closed schools.
Steve Sundquist has nothing new. Not now, not ever.
