Back in September, when Knox County Mayor Glenn Jacobs announced an Education Liaison, the tabloid bully gals got all fired up on their online site and was hating on the person and position. When the Education Liaison sent an email to the board in January, the tabloid bully gals fired up a story saying the Liaison had violated a state law of lobbying the legislature. Interestingly, the first time the email was requested through open records was from BrianHornback.Com according to my source. So it appears that the School Board Members are using the tabloid bully gals to be their soap box grandstanders.
Now, there is a tabloid bully gal story that a couple school board members are upset that they passed a resolution opposing a bill and are upset that it didn’t get sent to ALL members of the legislature. It was only given to Speaker Pro Tem Bill Dunn, who is a sponsor of the bill the board opposes.
Apparently, the School Board didn’t think to mail to resolution to ALL legislators, or send it to Senator Becky Duncan Massey, who serves as the Knox County Delegation Chair and request that she to forward to ALL legislators.
It seems that Betty Bean and a couple of School Board Members are advocating for an Education Liaison.
