Torn

Should I or shouldn’t I?

As previously mentioned, I was voted in to Council at the boys’ school last Thursday. I’m very excited about working to make our school a better place and to regain the reputation that fellow parents and I worked so hard to achieve when the school opened in 2002. At this point, our school is the laughing stock in the region. Rumors are flying about the principal that left at the last minute last year; about the Superintendant of Schools that also left abruptly at the end of last year; about who is sleeping with who and so on. It is ridiculous. I feel like I am in high school again.

Last year’s Council was, from what I understand, a complete mess. The Chair of Council is the wife of our School Board Trustee…and you all know how I feel about HIM! UGH! In my opinion, this is a complete conflict of interest! I am on a mission to see whether it is in fact recognized as a conflict by the Board, but, in the meantime, I am seriously considering running for Chair. It’s a big job, but I know I can do it. I want to ensure that the same woman from last year does not get the position. So, I am torn. I need to decide whether to run by this Thursday. I think I would be a shoo-in because I have the support of at LEAST six or seven members, but do I really want the aggravation of it all?

Time will tell. Stay tuned. Pin It
