We now have an EPISD trustee leaving her job to take a new job working for our congresswoman elect.
According to an article in the Times the decision was a difficult one for her:
- “This decision was made less difficult however by the increasing challenge that I have had getting questions answered and concerns addressed,” Byrd writes. “This lack of access to information has made it harder for me to effectively advocate for and communicate to my constituents.”
Really? She had to work hard to do her job. To me that is not a valid reason to consider quitting.
The end result is that she got a job that pays. Let someone else fend for the children, their parents and the taxpayers even though she committed to do the job.
At this point we don’t know how much she will be paid but that information will be publicly available next year.
It appears that this gives the board of trustees the ability to choose her replacement, probably guaranteeing another vote for whatever they want to do.
We deserve better
