I heard Taymore got a year extension. Her last three year contract would have her leaving by June 30, 2018, this being her final year. So is it now 06-30-19? Please, please tell me it isn't so. :(
St. John's Prep is worth every cent.....,.
Pay more will be 70 when she retires which is the same age as Trump was when elected President. Both are old, incompetent, manipulative, amoral, and narcissistic. Anyone who lets Trump or Taymore get away with their unconscionable behavior and choices deserves what they get.
I agree with you keep politics out of Melrose messages. Before I end this post President Obama was only a great speaker. President Trump has done more than Obama did the 8 years he were in office. Also, did not hear Taymore has another year. Check your information before you post.
In the sage words of Hannah Arendt, "the Holocaust resulted neither from a confluence of circumstances beyond human control nor from history’s inexorable march. It happened because ordinary people failed to stop it."
On a smaller (much smaller but every bit as real) scale, Melrose ordinary citizens continue to fail to stop the evils that start at the top of our city governance. Not only do they fail to stop it, they actively put up barriers, like telling people to "keep politics out of Melrose messages," which is the height of ridiculous. There is no place for real dialogue among Melrose places of governance under Dolan, Driscoll/SC, and this joke of a BOA, so this message board is about the only place left. Shame on you, "agree"!
Obama, when he ran for president, his background was, he ran a community. Had not enough experience and people voted for him. He and Michelle made it more prejudice in the world than ever. I feel if this were Clinton's, Kennedy's, Obama's and more they would not treat the president like this. Everyone of their children would never be treated how Ivanka is targeted. The DEMs need to chill this is real people and what is good for one should be the same for all.
This is false information, where did the poster get this news that, CT is staying another year?
"Everyone of their children would never be treated how Ivanka is targeted."
It's ignorant foolishness like this that demonstrates best what kind of people voted for Trump.
Sure, defend the billionaire daughter whose factories in China (not America) treat employees no better than slaves and who herself is married to someone under criminal investigation! Defend the daughter whose father-in-law did time as a felon for heinous acts, and who might very well end up doing time along with her criminal, treasonous family members. Go ahead and keep defending these Nazi collaborators. Melrose is a hotbed for this kind of foolishness, as is obvious to anyone who's every watched what passes for SC or BOA meetings.
Get off the Russian accusations, we want to move on! Hillary lost and they can not take it.
Perhaps "Agree" and "Redux" can lead their own White Rage rally on the Melrose Common and wave some swastika pompoms while wearing their own Make Melrose Great Again hats. The sickness under President Bannon grows stronger here among these creeps in our own burb who feel empowered to show more of their ugly true agendas. Sadly the local fanatic Hillaryites are corrupt and horrid, also. They hold and abuse the majority of local power (and more of them have pulled papers, starting with the fanatic MEF leader) thereby continuously providing inspiration and self-justification fuel to the right-wing nutjobs, making it all a tinder keg of sick rage. With the hideous Nutjob-in-Chief now playing with his nuclear tinker toys and raging at the world, we are all in real peril for even our basic survival. Saturday an American woman was killed on US soil by an American white man espousing Nazi White Supremacy beliefs. The President of the United States did not condemn these American Nazis in any actual way, and in fact employs actual "alt-right" white supremacists in his chief cabinet positions. "Agree" and "Redux" support Donald Trump, and his cadre of treasonous fascists. These are dark and truly perilous times.
CT has one more year starting now. Unless they extend her contract.
"You know what worries me? It's not that a group of racist idiots lit some tiki torches and decided to have a rally. I worry that on Monday they'll go back to their job in human resources and decide who gets hired and who gets fired. They'll put their uniform back on and 'serve and protect.'They'll sit on a jury and decide the fate of a young person of color. They'll teach in a kindergarten class. They'll sit across from a couple, who came to this country, worked hard and saved, and have the power to approve or deny them a loan to purchase their first home. They'll decide an insurance claim. They'll give an estimate to repair the brakes on a mother's only mode of transportation to get to work each day. I don't stay up lamenting the fact that racists feel emboldened to parade in the street. I stay up because racists have, do, and will apply their racist beliefs in their daily lives and, by extension mine, and they don't do it carrying a banner to distinguish themselves.
It isn't the theatrical that worries me. It's the practical."
Get over Taymore being our "Super" Superintendent, too.
Trump is our President and Taymore is Our Super.
Both destroy what they touch.
Both are enabled by those around them and are never held accountable.
Politicians from every political party and at every level of government (local and national) show no courage or leadership.
We are stuck with Trump and Taymore.
Incumbant and new candidates for BOa and SC will all be gutless sycophants.
If no one demands change, we deserve what we get.
To be far, Real Facts seems to be more of a Milano/Guerriero/Tisei type of Republican.
What worries me? It is 2017 and we are all equal now. I worry for my husband, wife, daughter, son, sister and brother who put's back on their uniform to serve and protect. They'll sit on a jury and decide the fate of O.J. Simpson. They will teach and never mention our President's name in a class. The new word for racist is bully. We are ALL equal now, so lets begin acting like human's and do a good deed today. It should be done no matter what color they are. Good luck it cost nothing and it make's a big deal and you feel good.
I agree. I also think if one has problems with superintendent, teachers, paras, secretaries, they should handle it in person.
Posting vicious accusatory remarks anonymously on melrose messages is cowardly. Or keep writing letters to high er ups.
Are you kidding me? When you do that you wind up having false accusations made against you by the city's lawyer and dragged into court on a harassment complaint. After that your child will be ostracized, and you may be denied access to the school without an escort. MM is really the only place left where you can air your complaint.
So true. That lawyer is a cancer on this city and you can blame Dolan for his appointment.
I am a parent at one of the schools in Melrose. As a parent we need to step it up and give more quality time with our kids. That does not mean put them in 4 to 5 sports it's not healthy and then go berserk on the kids and yourself.
If the SC leave CT in any longer you are going to pay the price.
