Suspended Huron Schools superintendent Fred Fox plans to publicly respond to allegations that the school board says warrant his termination.

Fox and his attorneys will have the floor at a special school board meeting Thursday.

There will be no comments from the public at the meeting, and the school board has no planstoaskFox any questions, district officials said.

Still, Fox’s attorney, Patrick Murray, said he hopes to have a dialogue rather than a monologue with the board.

I think this makes enough sense and deserves another posting. Thank you for your insight Mama ! (Why aren't so many of you making these connections ?)

I asked this question about FOUR weeks ago. Why did the board not give him a list of their complaints and then let him answer them in executive session?

NOW they are doing it? After they have done an investigation, run to the state and inflammed the public, removed him from his job and put him on administrative leave?

This is backward! Someone on that board, maybe all, either got bad advice from an attorney or just plain didn't take it. This is what you do FIRST, not last. So now they HAVE to do it or they would be violating his rights. They are doing it very publically per his request. They screwed up, made it public and now the board is going to have to listen to the answers in public. How awful it will be to have to listen to the answers without a comment. To have to sit there without defending themselves will be hard. But that is what they have done to Fox for some time now.

You know, what goes around ,comes around and they will be on the receiving end at that meeting. What should have stayed in executive session and did not, will now become public rebuttal and they cannot answer. That won't be easy for some of them. Especially the ones who have been screaming the loudest .

And the public cannot ask questions. That won't be easy either. WOW. I would not want to be sitting in any board member's shoes at this one. Not for all the water surrounding Huron.

And want to add:

Fred Fox is answering his accusers 'in public' not in executive session as he should have been afforded to protect his privacy.

Just once people.. Put yourself in Fred Fox's shoes. I wouldn't want to wear them.

Sold,

Who put Fred Fox in those shoes?

He did it to himself.

We don't have to wear them because we didn't put ourseleves in that position.

DonutShopBro-

True.. He did walk where he wanted in those shoes, however, Fred Fox still should have been afforded the privacy of an executive session like any other employee in the Huron City Schools would have. Tim Sowecke made sure that that privacy was disregarded.

No matter what Fred Fox did, or did not do, he still should have been 'granted' an audience in executive session and be confronted by his accusers with somewhat of a shield of privacy.

No matter what Fred Fox did, or did not do, you are never going to convince me, (or his lawyers), that he should not have at least been able to answer the accusations in executive session before there was a press release.

The proof of this is that Fred Fox is still being paid.

Thanks for reading Donut..

And none of that changes what Fox did. This is nothing but a red herring or smoke screen. Fact 1--He had an affair using district email and time on a repeated basis over a long period of time. Fact 2--He took free/discounted golf. Both of those things are huge ethics violations and he should be terminated because of them, regardless of how the board handled it.

We can deal with the board when Fox is gone.

You are so angry. Relax Informed, justice will happen.

Fact 1 - Prove it.

Fact 2 - Who cares about discounted golf from a friend ? Are you upset the offer wasn't made to you ?

All in all what Fred Fox 'alledgidly' did, or did not do will most likely be addressed by Fred Fox himself tonight.

Stay tuned..

Informed

Sold, I don't have to prove Fact 1, the emails already do that.  In regard to Fact 2, it is black and white in the Code of Ethics that Fox cannot accept any gifts over $25 in value from anyone with which the district does business.  He did.

 

Justme...

Sold - please reread the letter and article.  He had the choice to respond in public, in writing or in executive session.  He CHOSE to respond in public.  Just one of the many mis-statements you have made...

Justme...

Sold are you sure they didn't give him the chance to defend himself before they forwarded the report to the ethics commission??  Cause I'm pretty sure they did - back in May.  3 hour executive session.  Its in the Register.

 sold...I don't recall mentioning any names but you immediately start naming the Buleas. Why would you assume that is who I am referrig to? Maybe your good friends shared it with you.  I don't need binoculars, just looking out my window is enough.

TDN-

You know the Buleas went on vacation. You probably even know where they went.

I don't really care as I was just making fun of your preoccupation with John C. and Nancy B.

Sure Sold...I keep tabs on your friends 24/7.  They are that important to me...lol

Of course I know where they went on vacation.  I depleted my savings acccount and followed them.  It wasn't easy to keep up, though.

They ran through the briars and they ran through the brambles and they ran through the bushes where a rabbit couldn't go.  They ran so fast that I couldn't catch them, on down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico.

TDN-

You are definately goofy, but also funny.

You keep calling them, 'My Friends' which is also funny, but it seems they are more your friends, now that you've vacationed with them... lol

Politics make for strange bedfellows !
