Board Appoints Committee

Quick one here before bedtime. The school board made its announcement tonight. They let PFOX put Peter Sprigg on the committee even though they didn't follow the process, but CRC had no such luck. Their seat will remain vacant. TeachTheFacts.org has Yours Truly on the committee. MCCPTA, NARAL Pro Choice, PFLAG, and the Montgomery County Region of the Maryland Association of Student Councils all had representatives. The new chair is Carol Plotsky, a pediatrician, and there are seven individuals, none of whom I know, but I will trust that the board screened them rigorously.

Gabe Romero was the only board member who voted against the appointments.

OK, well ... what in the world have I gotten myself into this time?

(More tomorrow)

If this is not moronic, what would be? Jim, at least feign some impartiality.

It would be the truth.

From the today's (10-26-05) Gazette: "CRC’s board of directors plans to meet Thursday to consider whether to go back to court over an agreement that settled a federal lawsuit against the school board by CRC and Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays and Gays, said John R. Garza, a Rockville attorney who is CRC’s vice president."

Truth hurts for some to hear...CRC wants to sue for anything and everything. It was simple to follow guidlines for signing up for seat on committee. Lots of folks/groups did with great ease.

CRC chose not to...now they want to threatened to sue. It figures.

The board would have found it simple to simply follow their agreed-upon settlement and state law but they've got another agenda.

Those who act illegally can expect to be sued. Stop whining, Kay.

Now what agreement says as posted on June 27, 2005 and signed by CRC/PFOX....

Excerpt:

6. MCPS agrees that the newly-constituted CAC, for the term during which the consultation on the Revisions contemplated by the Board’s May 23, 2005 resolution will occur, will include a maximum of 15 members and will include one representative of PFOX and one
representative of CRC, to be selected by the Board in accordance with Section C(2)(a)(3) of Board Policy BMA, provided such representatives are Montgomery County residents and are
otherwise qualified and able to serve on the committee. PFOX and CRC will inform the Board
of their nominees in writing by July 1, 2005.


Board Policy BMA was never changed before agreement or after.



What we all saw in W. Post yesterday and Gazette today from CRC ...now that was whining.

Stop whining, Kay


Anon if you think there is whining going on here (Let's all go back and read newspapers from yesterday to hear CRC's low moan)
then just jump right on over to CRC message board that is so lame that no sound can be heard from it.

Guaranteed no whining there as no one posts there with any knowledge other than they same old message of CRC hate for homosexuals, etc. Even the few CRC people who post there just regurgitate every now and then.

I am sure they could use you anon.

Anon- can't you ever be anything close to logical? There were laws and rules in place for advisory committees before this settlement. It gave CRC a place at the table but not the right to overrule all MCPS/MD state rules/policies on committees. I knew that CRC would sue- they would sue for their fake therapy inclusion, if not this(maybe they can get Kevin Trudeau to join up -although he is only into phony cures, not bigotry). I knew it even if they had put up three nominees- they would probably plan to sue if MCPs didn't pick their main person.

The new "rules" were made for the express purpose of excluding anyone who dared disagree with their policies. This is a warning to the new committee that if they dissent, they'll never serve on the committee again.
