Here's a new one — Christie the socialist

Yep, that is what Jim O’Neill, whose contract to continue as superintendent of schools in the school District of the Chathams has been criticized by the governor, said today. Here is part of the super’s statement:

I don’t think the governor wants board members to represent taxpayers, he wants them to echo what he believes.  I would guess that three fourths of all board members in Morris County are Republicans but maybe they are Republicans who don’t fully subscribe to the more socialist parts of his agenda.”

By saying that, O’Neill was referring to the governor’s pending cap on superintendent salaries.

    Mr. O’ Neill has every right to make comments about the CEO of the State. Where I disagree is how some of his thoughts are less then thought out. Could we please have a look at his college transcripts?
    A hallmark of great leadership is showing some style and knowing when not to make statements. What he mentions to the press is of little value or importance.
    How about he go to work in one of the troubled school systems in New Jersey? That would be a real test of his value to education and stuents.

    “I don’t think the governor wants board members to represent taxpayers” I find to be an INTERESTING comment. MAYBE THE BOARD MEMBERS SHOULD PUT TO A VOTE TO THE TAXPAYERS ALL, YES ALL OF THEIR DECISIONS! NO MORE BACK ROOM DEALS!!!!!!!
