Breaking: Droopy Matt Doell Gets Dirty
August 2, 2018
[caption id="attachment_36429” align="alignleft” width="210”] Droopy (or Disgusting?) Matt Doell[/caption] Voters in House District 110 are asking why they received such a “disgusting” flyer from candidate Matt Doell. Answer: Probably because he’s losing badly. Matt Doell has decided to get dirty. And personal. And mean. (Horrible internals?) While Dottie Bailey has knocked doors, attended coffees, and generally met with voters, Matt Doell rubbed elbows with hot-shots and union bosses and avoided anything that looks like an “ordinary person.
Bad Judgment on Rockwood School Board (or something worse?)
July 31, 2018
Everyone remembers the horrible audit of the Rockwood School District. ** $1.2 million wasted in double payments ** Contracts awarded to a construction company that had one of its executives on the board ** Feeble, “arrogant” response to the audit from board members ** Bad management! But the worst example of cronyism and arrogance went largely unreported. (The great Elliott Davis caught it, though. Video to follow.) Rockwood Board’s Secret Response The late auditor Tom Schweich released Rockwood’s horrible audit on February 28, 2013.
State House Candidate Likes Local Control after Embarrassing State Audit
July 26, 2018
One of the candidates for Missouri House District 110 (Eureka, Wildwood, and Pacific) sent out a mailer to voters today. The mailer talks about “local control” of education, and many other fine platitudes that poll well. In other news,** while this candidate was on the Rockwood School District board of directors** (the district that serves most of Eureka, Wildwood, and Pacific), **bad things happened**. Like this: The Rockwood School District overpaid its longtime construction management company by more than $1.
Rockwood School Board Quid Pro Quo?
April 13, 2014
From the “see, I told ya so” file . . . Rockwood NEA President Suzanne Dotta worked hard to influence the recent school board election. The candidates Ms. Dotta pushed won. The new board hired Ms. Dotta as Director of Professional Learning within 72 hours of the election. I expect Ms. Dotta to teach Rockwood’s professionals how to game the system for personal gain at taxpayer expense. If you’d like to question this apparent quid pro quo, the next Rockwood Board meeting is April 24.

Do you live in Rockwood School District? I do. My kids all went to Rockwood schools. My wife taught in a Rockwood school for three years. The teachers in Rockwood tend to think a lot like the people who live here. They’re not a bunch of wacked-out lefties. Not most of them. Still, that good education has come with HUGE price tag. Rockwood is one of the most expensive districts in Missouri.

Rockwood School District Wants More Money But State Audit Found It Mismanages The Money It Has
March 21, 2013
Were Rockwood School District to shut down, the entire bond-issue-campaign-financing industry would slump into depression. [caption id="attachment_12113” align="alignright” width="284”] Rockwood School District wants another $38 million bond issue on the heals of scathing audit of its financial management practices.I’ve lived in this district since 1996, and I honestly don’t remember an April in which the board wasn’t asking for more money to carpet the football fields or remodel 12-year-old theatres or build an observatory or whatever.
