To the Editor:
During the previous two years of my time period on the Stafford Township faculty board I experienced the satisfaction of serving with 1 of the most effective board customers I have come to know for the duration of a full of serving 4 phrases on the board.
She is devoted to her situation and is generally organized for meetings. She is an advocate for the students and taxpayers with no conflicts or personal agenda. She is her have person and is not 1 of the superintendent’s puppets. She recently took on a faction of the board that wishes to increase the superintendent’s contract. George Chidiac does not are entitled to one more contract.
Through my 24 yrs in the district, both as a board member and staff, I have regarded five superintendents. In my belief, George Chidiac is the worst a person the district has at any time had. He is disruptive, divisive and political. He has divided this board.
I have many own stories about him, but that is for a different time. Early this 12 months, The SandPaper posted a tale about a feminine personnel filing a harassment complaint towards him. That lawsuit was settled out of court docket and cost the district in excess of $125,000 moreover what the insurance plan compensated her. At a recent board assembly, once more reported in The SandPaper, it was made general public that he filed a tort declare against three board members and if they did not concur to increase his contract he would seek out lawful motion for 5 years’ well worth of salary. Is not this extortion?
He states in the tort assert the board users prevented him from finding a job in Jackson and Brick. I guess he hardly ever assumed the harassment complaint had just about anything to do with it. Chidiac also states in his tort claim that he is not able to accomplish his responsibilities and receives consistent treatment for psychological, psychiatric and other actual physical, mental and emotional distress. Does this seem like someone who must be in the district until eventually 2025?
He also schemed to have board member Tammy Wagner propose a resolution to adopt a doctrine of necessity so that the board members who opposed his getting a new contract could not vote on it. As described once again in The SandPaper, the Point out Ethics Commission threw this subject out.
Patricia Formica and her Accountability and Transparency group with James Curcio and Gregory Guido can be counted on to not be puppets for George Chidiac, and do what is appropriate for the college students and taxpayers of Stafford.
