Thanks Melissa for calling out DeBell for his private tête-à-têtes with Burgess and Morris at the board meeting.

And for pointing out that Sara Morris has no place DEMANDING data from Paul Apostle so that unofficial 3rd parties to the CBA (Alliance/LEV/OSC) can MONITOR how SPS is doing with all the crap re: career ladders, stipends, etc. She can submit a public records request and wait four months like the rest of us.
