Those in attendance at the last RTBOE meeting were mesmerized by the Legend of Ted Doty.Like most tall tales however the story was filled with hyperbole. It’s my understanding that I’ve been credited with around 200 “inquiries” this past year, all of which robbed student programs.
Here are the facts based on a review of the last 22 meeting agendas as well as archived emails. I wrote to the board 98 times not 200. Ninety four of those missives were commentary and links to blogs, news articles or editorials. That is,they were of no cost to the district. Paper copies weren’t even required since all my correspondence was digital.
It should be noted that the 4/14/2010 agenda indicated 18 correspondence between James Verbist and myself. This was a thread initiated by Verbist from his home on Palm Sunday (yes I have copies). The flurry of activity reported February 9 represents 3 inquiries and 7 commentaries. BTW, all other correspondence is either Verbist’s refusal to comply or my clarification of the 3 requests.
Bottom line, we know the board took hundreds of thousands from the students since 6/30/10 and we know the sun rises, the sun sets and if Mike Friedberger’s lips are moving, he’s lying
