Re: “Michael Nellums' letter; more secret tapes

I for one respect his decision to walk away from this BS. He's always helped kids...period. No one knows the real story behind the alleged videos but Nellums appears to have taken the brunt of the beating and that isn't fair. Williams get's a "victim pass" (or she did until yesterday when the sheriff announced that he's investigating two board members and we know she's one of them). Clark goes on playing the master manuipulator and has "allegedly paid off Williams before." (there goes that word allegedly) And Bennett, the actor,... gets a get out of jail free card.

If Nellums would have towed the union line, he'd have a line union lawyers threatening the district with a lawsuit, calling this action bias, unfair, and against the negotiated agreement,etc.,etc.,etc.,

You have to respect him for being a man, and letting his school district move forward. I would only hope that Clark, Williams, and Marty Nix.. do the "right thing."

Re: “A question on the Nellums retirement

I've seen the county school district keep employees on leave for over a year with pay. As max stated, if Mr. Nellums decided to pursue this issue, it could become a costly matter for the district. With that in mind, if I were Mr. Nellums, I'd fight it, have a hearing, if I lost, I'd appeal the hearing and exhaust the county's coffers until I got two more years worth of teachers retirement.

In the hearing, Clark and Williams would have to excuse themselves and I'd use Williams as a witness. I'd ask Williams if the PACT teachers union ever gave her any financial assistance and how often did it happen. Did it happen just before votes that benefitted the embattled union?

Nellums retirement gives Gwen Williams and the union a way out. They ought to be thankful. The new investigation is about Gwen Wlliams taking money from "many sources." This time ....she won't be portrayed as a victim.

I respect him not trying to get anymore than he deserved and walking away knowing he helped many kids. Along the way, everybody knows that he's been the union's biggest target for years. Now that he's gone, who's the target now?
