As recent JeffCo Board meetings go, this one was relatively quiet. Mr. Witt and Ms. Dahlkemper did have a couple of small clashes, but things went pretty predictably with one exception, the issue of the court case on the 2090 Wright Street land dispute.

Congratulations! WNW and their supporters must be getting very worried about us!
They already have set up a misleading Facebook page with a name very similar to ours, and now they are now spreading a rumor via email that “JeffCo School Board Watch” intends to disrupt the meeting tonight.
What they are doing, of course, is twisting what we said in our post from yesterday, “Show up at the Budget Meeting!“.
What we said was: “So how can we make our feelings known without giving Witt an excuse to ‘deal’ with us?…How about signs?…we can hold the signs up quietly.” (italics and bolding added)
Wow. Sounds like a real disturbance, doesn’t it?
This is typical of the extreme supporters of WNW. When they can’t win on actual facts, figures, logic and reason, they resort to rumor, innuendo, exaggeration, and manipulation.
Do not let them get away with it! If you get the email, reply back with a copy of this post and maybe the original post. Truth is the best answer to rumor and falsehood.
And show up tonight! 6:30 p.m. in the Board Room on the 5th floor of the Education Center.

The meeting went on until well after 11:00 p.m. Continue reading
