To remember the political career of Gary Bonnell. Gary has been the lightning rod of the ELSD since he has been elected. And since he has become president of the board, He has brought ridicule and shame to the proud city of East Liverpool.
He gained attention with his Jihad against school choice when he went before the Ohio State Senate and Complained about BOSS while not pointing out that his school was not educating children, which is why parents were removing their children from his district.
Then Gary started wanting the Midland PA school district to start paying the ELSD for children that were not being educated in the ELSD. He had no real concern for educating the children from Midland he was wanting more money for his failing schools.
At this point Gary found this blog and posted two comment’s which I combined into one reply which pointed out his ridiculous arguments.
When Gary became the school board president, he explained some of his plans, which was copying the concept of a cyber-school. Which after he previously called cyber-schools “Educational Prostitution” he became a symbol of Hypocrisy.
Gary then turned his wrath upon the State Auditor who promptly spanked him and sent him to bed without supper.
This summer Gary continued to annoy especially Ken Halbert the superintendent, who Gary would not leave alone on his three week vacation.
Now we come to recent events that lead to Gary’s Political demise. He found out that some desks had been taken from a dumpster outside of the school, he tried to involve the district in pursuing this, but received no support. He complained that a police officer’s child was the mastermind of this. So he filed a personal complaint. When the officer found out that the desks were to be recycled instead of junked he had them returned. The ELPD was satisfied with that but Gary wasn’t happy with that. He also “heard” that the police officer had installed culvert pipe from the North Elementary on his property. Well, Gary was absolutely sure that the Police chief was protecting his officer. Untill the Chief showed up at the meeting last week and proved that the culvert pipe was not the size used at the North Elementry site. The crowd then turned sour and the rest of the board left him on the stage.
I’m sure that the voters are going to remember this next November, because when any one mentions Gary the tempature in the room rises. He has became a iratent that only excision will cure.
So, beloved, let us comit this failed career to the earth from whence it came. May the voters have wisdom in electing a replacement who cares about improving the childrens education.
