Recycled Leadership for the Board of Education

In my last post be­fore my last blog­ging hia­tus, I brought up the im­por­tance of the of­fi­cer elec­tions as a board re­places two mem­bers in First Board Meeting with the New Board Members (Mystery Education Theater 3000). Well, the sec­ond worst out­come oc­curred. No new peo­ple as Chair or Clerk — just Madeline Kronenberg and Charles Ramsey.

When there are ro­tat­ing po­si­tions, there needs to be ac­tual ro­ta­tion. It’s the duty of each mem­ber to step up and share the bur­den of lead­er­ship. This may seem like “in­sider base­ball” to most, but the lead­er­ship sets the tone. This was a dis­ap­point­ing out­come.

What a co­in­ci­dence! I bring this up be­cause the Hercules City Council had pre­vi­ously taken a prin­ci­pled stand about stay­ing out of the mind­less ex­change of cross-en­dorse­ments by dif­fer­ent gov­ern­ment ju­ris­dic­tions. A new city coun­cil has a dif­fer­ent ap­proach, and this in­volves some­thing more sub­stan­tive hap­pen­ing at about the same time.
