It was on the Contra Costa newspaper website.

On the last available Board minutes for NUSD, which are for the May 20th meeting, I find this item: XXIII. Committee Reports, Announcements, Requests, Debrief and Discussion – Board of Education Member Rodriguez stated the last few weeks have been frustrating with superintendents and other individuals coming to chastise the Board. He felt this was inappropriate. Having a valued employee speak about different things makes him feel the Board should meet to have a self-evaluation, discuss some of the comments made and discuss ways the Board could do a better job. Member Crocker agreed, a time needs to be scheduled for the important business of a Board self-evaluation. Vice President Mensinger stated the Board needs to discuss the minutes stating they are requiring too much time in terms of the process. President Thomas stated the minutes are not a Board evaluation topic, but the concerns should be directed to staff. There is also a closed meeting on May 28th which has not been reported.

I read an opinion piece in the Tri City Voice 6-3-14 issue,Letter to the Editor pg 16 Support for Dr. Marken by Christine Herrera. Ms Herrera stated that she and some group of concerned parents would show up at tonight's 6-3-14 NUSD board meeting she also called for the Board members to resign I am familiar with 2 of the Board members and would hope that Gary Statler and Charlie Mensinger would ignore this request . I read the story too late otherwise I would have been there to see grass roots in action, unfortunately I had a commitment that couldn't be broken. i RE POSTED THIS SINCE HALF OF MY POSTS HAVEN'T POSTED LATELY.

I will second Geoff Burton's request that Statler and Mensinger do not resign. We need you My posts often disappear too. That's ok because I am going to unsubscribe from the post and rely on letters, fax, phone, newspaper and any other medium I can find to voice my opinion.
