While speaking with people at the Rec Center and asking for their support, I introduced myself to a man holding a Pete Nicholas sign. He introduced himself as Dennis Nash. He told me that he was Linda Nash's husband and that my father was his principal when he was in high school. I told him that I hoped he didn't have to visit my father's office too often. He said he did a good job at staying away from his office when he was in school. I then told him that it was OK for our school board and I to have differences of opinion. I said all that I have been doing is asking for them to do their job and conduct business as openly as other school districts do and that I was hoping for change in the future. It was a good conversation and hopefully he will convey this to Linda.
I got the chance to speak with Dave Palmer. Dave and I talked mostly about running and other things from our days in school.
I also had the chance to speak with Dan Kroupa. Dan certainly has the credentials to be a great school board member and his background in accounting should bring more accountability to our board. Dan now has a better understanding of how our district has been conducting business and I look forward to working with him and Steve Holloway and the rest of our school board as we start turning things around in our school district.
