G-LtE™: Rebuttal to Charleston Gazette
The article in today’s issue of Charleston Gazette contributes to more mystery associated with the State’s sudden and unexpected seizure of Gilmer County schools.
Because the article pertained to Dr. Simmons what is the relevancy of information about GLENVILLE STATE COLLEGE?
Was there anything in the vacancy announcement to document that the new superintendent would execute any responsibilities which would affect the College or that GLENVILLE STATE COLLEGE officials would have roles in the selection process?
The decision for hiring Dr. Simmons was the responsibility of our elected officials who used a democratic process for their decision.
Word has circulated that at least one high level official from GLENVILLE STATE COLLEGE made a call to Charleston to contribute to OEPA’s rushing to Glenville to trigger the unexpected seizure.
If GLENVILLE STATE COLLEGE’s involvement is true, does it not suggest tampering with County business?
Also, does it not suggest that the ugly head of politics dominated?
Accordingly, there are three key questions related to what happened to Dr. Simmons.
• Was he the most qualified candidate who applied for the vacant position?
• Was he discriminated against because of his age?
• Was political intervention by GLENVILLE STATE COLLEGE officials and others principal reasons for the seizure and its impact on Dr. Simmons?
More information will be forthcoming.
Fortunately, truth has a stubborn way of prevailing, particular in this information age of computer literacy.
