Illiteracy, Illiteracy, Nothing but Illiteracy

All correspondence including email sent to School Board members or School District staff are considered public records, per Florida Statute 119


This grammar-punctuation disaster adorns the first page of the district’s web site. It contains a subject-verb agreement error, three comma errors, and no end punctuation. The passive verb is wretched style.

Revision:

The Board considers all correspondence, including email to Board members or School District staff, to be public records per Florida statute 119.

The problem with this public-records invocation is that the Board assures the public of access to data, yet its official spin doctor, Le Steve Grammar-Punctuation-Challenged Heggarty, engages in stalling, cover-up, flim-flam, and, in Governor Dean’s immortal words on Hardball, hide-the-salami tactics to keep the public from access to public records.

The public deserves better grammar/punctuation and less hog-wash from School Board public servants and administrative public parasites.

See
http://www.leedrurydecesarescasting-roomcouch.blogspot.com/ for more commentary on the School Board and the administration. Gentlepeople of the Hillsborough County School Board:

One sees that Ms. Elia's web page biography still contains punctuation errors that would shame a remedial-English student. Doesn't the Board feel responsibility to have the overpaid, punctuation-illiterate superintendent purge the errors? I told the superintendent how to do so. I taught college English for twenty-eight years and am qualified to identify and correct punctuation errors. She presided over the real-estate scam that the Board overlooked.

La Elia apparently pouts and continues the affront to literacy on her Web page even after I published the corrections. This World Wide Web Hillsborough County illiteracy reflects on the Board and shall feature as a campaign issue when next you Board members face us voters. If you think it's in the interest of education to hire and pay a superintendent a quarter of a million dollars a year who can't punctuate and who can't manage the real-estate business in her bailiwick without ripping off the public before she got the superintendent job, then voters need to hear that explanation from you all on the stump.

The Board made the decision to choose the least qualified candidate for this important job of superintendent. The pay of a quarter of a million dollars of tax money that this punctuation-challenged worst-choice-real-estate-scam-colluding superintendent candidate gets demands at a minimum her being able to punctuate at the level that the diplomas of the graduating students purport to guarantee.

This embarrassing affliction added to La Elia's disastrous supervision of the real-estate-scam-ridden building department that constituted her putative recommendation for the job should make this Board ashamed of its round-heels' playing into the hands of the in-house power cabal of thugs determined to hang on to the the clout that control of the tax-supplied budget stash gives its members to inflate their own salaries; to act as patronage chiefs in doling out contracts; and to awarding jobs to buddies, paramours, and no-talent hangers-on without honoring the Board's promise and Title VII legal duty for equal-opportunity hiring.

I suggest hiring bias reflects poorly on the School Board minority members, Valdez and Ethridge. They should be resistant to discrimination. Instead, they have joined the Anglo potted plants in collusion with unfair, illegal hiring practices.

This superintendent cabal runs a racket that you Board members collude with by your not doing your homework and by your sitting on the Board like potted plants, not as engaged public servants who guard students', teachers', and the taxpaying community's interest in education.

You Board drones don't ask the administration tough questions; you simply go along with its agenda. You do not honor the promise to the public that you made in running for the Board that you will protect its interests. You are too lazy or too deficient in courage to do so. The public and the students deserve better.

Board stalwarts: What about ordering the superintendent to purge her web page of punctuation errors? Is web-page literacy too much to ask of a school superintendent when a taxpayer gave her the answers to the test? La Elia's illiteracy disgraces the Board and makes you on that putative governing body look like collusive patsies who don't give a fig for the high purpose of education. Those Web superintendent basic-punctuation errors mock any claim from the Board or administration about its commitment to literacy.

Board members: Keep in mind that you are La Elia's bosses; she is not your boss. Act your part. Recall Shakespeare's words: "There is a tide in the affairs of men [add "women"] which, taken at the flood/Leads on to greatness. Omitted, all the voyage of their lives is bound and shallows and in miseries."

Board members: Use the power that the voters gave you, or, if you lack the courage of your office, step down for candidates who will use it for the community's benefit.

Birthday greetings to Steve Hegarty, who draws $91,000 tax dollars a year to evade citizens' government-in-the-sunshine requests from the people who pay his unearned salary, LE STEVE preferring to work as the spin shill of a corrupt administrartion bent on ripping off the taxpayers and bloating its salaries despite Superintendent Elia's inability to punctuate a simple sentence and Lover Boy Hamilton's inability to distinguishe between "you're" and "your."


Happy Birthday, sychophantic, spin-doctor Steve Heggarty:
Your Escutcheon

My Escutcheon

Steve, it's your 22nd birthday! I couldn't let the day go by without sending you birthday greetings. Imagine my surprise when I found out you are a Gemini like I am. I knew we were soul mates the first screaming session we had.

Now to seal the soul-mate pact, consider this a birthday request --the fifth--to identify those three anonymous administrators you cited in your job application that you kept in contact with, sensing such sychophancy would secure you a job in the future for which you were unqualified and a salary which you do not deserve since you can't punctuate. School employees should be able to punctuate.

I await your explanation that the Sunshine Law says you owe me, a citizen requesting public information, for your refusal to send me a fulsome essay on why I can't have these data. Your curt "no" hurts my feelings and is not sporting.

Happy birthday and may you have many more but not on the public tax tab in the job-hiring-buddy-system of the School Board.

lee drury de cesare, Gemini but honest



Ms. Gentry:
Please get the files of the finalists in the superintendent hiring; the files in the public-relations hiring (Heggarty's), Dr. Otero's employment file; and Dr. Hamilton's employment file ready for my repeated review.
Let me know when they are ready for me to examine.




And tell Le Hegarty that I await his explanation that the Sunshine law says he owes this citizen for why he will not reveal to me the names of the administrators whom he cultivated in his application for his position.




Tell him to ask for an opinion from Attorney General Crist on his obligation in this request.



I am sure Le Heggarty wants to behave in a manner coincident with the Sunshine law.
