Red Clay Board of Education President Michael Piccio resigned this week, announcing that he would be moving out of the Wilmington-area and Delaware.
I curious as to why his announcement cam after August 16th board meeting? Word has it Merv knew before other school board members.
Piccio, reached by phone Thursday, said he left the board because he is no longer a resident of the district. He and his youngest son recently relocated to Cape May County, New Jersey, while his wife and oldest son, a senior, will remain in the Wilmington-area until graduation.
Looks like it was well known in advance of last board meeting .
You can bet your ass the powers to be are working their asses off looking for someone that shares their “vision” and the union may be doing the same.
We must remember school board members though they put the interest and needs of students first, they do have a responsibility to the taxpayers. After all they are “elected” officials.
Now on to Bill Dunn! Bill Dunn is a former Red Clay school board member and OMG he didn’t back-down from the domineering uni-brow board president. Between Dunn and Pandora, Red Clay board meetings were quite entertaining. Dunn did his best to hold the obsessive board members to task. However, the old guard had their agenda. There are new financial pressures and uncertainly and we need board members who are objective and balanced! Who can fit that bill? Dunn? Do we worry about a district or union installed puppet?
