This particular school board trustee is more likely to say, "Kiss my grits!"

Note the article says that  "He (Stemler) acknowledged that the decision of Greater Clark County School Board member Teresa Perkins to plead guilty to a felony theft charge in Tennessee last year brought the need for the new law to his attention."  .........."If they're convicted (or plead guilty) of a felony, there should be a removal process in place which wasn't there before.."

 

It is NOW time for the remaining school board members and superintendent to speak out about this travesty and demand that their fellow board member resign.   A teacher would have been terminated long ago ---- board members are no longer exempt from removal if they plead guilty to a felony and they are no longer "special".   Board members who approve of Ms. Perkins' refusal to resign lack ethics and integrity as well in my opinion.   It will be interesting to see if any of them have the courage to speak out or as Captain Picard said, are we waiting for "pigs to fly"!

I'm hearing that pleading guilty and a guilty conviction are two different things.  I'm hoping this legislation includes both scenarios.

Today -- July 1st -- is a great day for the people of Indiana and especially the people of Clark County. Today, Public Law 57 takes effect. Representative Steve Stemler and Senator Ron Grooms sponsored House Bill 1335 which passed both the House and Senate unanimously. The bill was written in direct response to the refusal of Greater Clark County School Board member Teresa Perkins to step down from the Board after pleading guilty to felony theft in Tennessee. This law ensures that school board members can be removed from office in the same manner as other public officials. They are NOT exempt. Let's hope we never have another school board member who commits a felony while in office, but if they do, they will no longer be able to retain their seat. Ms. Perkins' continued presence on the Board is shameful and taints the credibility of the entire Board. She needs to step down immediately.
