I don't think she was a good fit from the start. But she worked hard and tried to be everywhere. She did try to overcome Dr. Corda's biggest flaws. Let's give her credit for effort and wish her well.
Now we have to make sure that the Board of Ed doesn't make the same mistakes they made when they were picking the last superintendent. The played for months under Rosa Murray as Chairperson and then decided to get no input from the community until the selection was a done deal. View Comment
If the budget issues are "misunderstood" by anyone it is by Chairman Jack Chiaramonte.
In five years on the Board of Education, I don't think he has ever voted against a Superintendent's budget or a Superintendent's appointment. View Comment
Shameful that between the two politicians there's not a shred of decency or common sense.
How do they have information that the BoE chairman doesn't have. Last I checked, he was a very big supporter of Susan Marks.
It sounds like a case of two people trying to seem a lot more important and connected than they are.
First, Susan Marks has never publicly criticized the BOE. If she had an issue she'd say something, right? So, do King and Barbis want us to believe that she is so weak that she wouldn't say a word?
Second, if they are the big fans they claim to be, why wouldn't they respect the woman's privacy? Guess fantastic political gains are more important.
Third, what specific complaint do they have with the BoE? Are they unhappy Marks' contract was extended? Unhappy that every single appointment Marks has made has been approved?
I know, I know, maybe they're peeved that the Rowayton School construction project is going forward even though their campaign supporters Lisa Thompson and Sue Haynie spoke out against it incessantly?
