Voters, union got their wish

I wrote a Letter to the Editor last fall, during the election process, about how the Fallbrook High teachers association candidates (O’Connor, Schulte and Steffler) said their platform was to bring about “change” in the district. At the time, I referenced a letter that had appeared in the North County Times during the same timeframe, written by Jana Scott, that warned Superintendent Tom Anthony to “Be afraid; be very afraid.”
After reading the recent article entitled “Board member accuses others of violating Brown Act” (Village News, 4/26/07), it appears that the SOS slate has started to change things – changing from a board that conducted themselves lawfully to one that does not.
I hope all the voters who supported these candidates are pleased with their actions when megabucks lawsuits start taking huge bites out of taxpayer money intended for the students.
Or, perhaps, since the teachers association is wealthy enough to finance election candidates to serve as their law-breaking puppets, they will be willing to pony up with the substantial costs associated with the lawsuits they bring the district.
Just remember voters, you (and the union) got your wish.
