You see, I've done some additional research and asked a few more questions. In the end, I have reached a conclusion that is opposite my initial view. Though it is likely hard to believe, this is how I see things today: Wade is the superintendent best suited to guide the Olentangy Schools toward a bright future. And, this is also a key point; a dissenting voice has no place on the board.
Look, folks, Wade just received his Ed.D., and he has decades of experience. He is innovative (witness his dissertation, etc.) and energetic. He is just what the district needs. It's high time we support Wade and his agenda.
And it's high time that we begin working to return experienced leadership to the board.
Likely, there will be folks running in November claiming the need for change. However, just look to the White House to see the results of change.
We need sensible, experienced leadership -- leaders who will stand behind the superintendent and his staff, no matter the issue, no matter the expense. That is the sole means to the district's sought after ends.
Wade, Best of luck. Keep up the good work. And more power to you!
