No, Linda. I am not calling you a liar. As a citizen, I pray that you are this citizen's and all citizens' advocate to true public information. You are the nexus of truth between the school board and the citizens whom you serve. It's a grave job.
I ask for a record of the last three jobs Hamilton had; their job description, their advertising if any, the competing applicants' submissions if any.
I want to know how Dr. Hamilton's job history ends with the school board. That is my simple aim.
I am convinced that Ms. Elia invented him a job after his official retirement date.
The state of Florida pension people will tell me when he began his pension. That would be his retirement data. A job past that time with the Hillsborough County School Board would be an invented job, the one the clerk told me he was on the job's papers for before it was announced.
Why would the clerk tell me that he got a job before it was listed ? Surely she was not lying . She thought she was just doing her job.
I have written to the pension people for the state as to when Dr. Hamilton began his pension. If he began it before he left HCC (I recall everybody got up and applauded him when it was announced by the board chair that he would be leaving. There was no enthusiastic applause. Dr. Hamilton was not popular.
According to my calculation,l this was seven months after his official retirement date.
Let's keep this businesslike. I will need this information when I appeal to the Secretary of Education for redress in the Kipley, Smiley, Sosa, and Morris Professional Standards cases that you told me Mr Valdez would not process.l
You will always be my source for public information unless the adminstration upper crust fires you. In which case I expect you to come to me for help, and I will help all that I can, and that is a considerable amount.
I have to trust your truthfulness or file a complaint against you. I would prefer the former.
Let's stick simply to the facts of the records. We can get through this one email at a time. lee
