Email today from Nancy Steenson, Chair of Timberlane School Board. Received at 5:02 p.m.
It has been reported to me that an investigation is being conducted by the Superintendent’s office concerning your interactions with an SAU staff member on July 24, 2014. Until such time as the investigation is complete, you are hereby barred from entering upon the SAU #55 premises without the expressed written permission of the Superintendent of Schools. Dr. Metzler will make appropriate arrangements for you to conduct your duties as a school board member.
I might note that no one from the SAU has contacted me about this incident, so thorough has been their investigation to date. Nor have they provided the security recording I requested that will exonerate me from this ridiculous “investigation.” The clock is ticking on that.
AUGUST 1, 2014 UPDATE: More than a week from the supposed “incident,” no one has contacted me – not Dr. Metzler, not the police, not anyone. The security recording has not been given to me in disregard of the Right to Know law. Dr. Metzler has been reported as saying that Green is an obstructionist and that I will not be allowed to use rudeness and disrespect to accomplish my objectives. The only rudeness and disrespect going on here is that from the administration towards me. At the July 16th meeting Dr. Metzler said I was a waste of a representative for Sandown. This is an odd statement coming from an employee talking about an elected official who is charged with overseeing his performance.
I would draw your attention to something I posted here on July 18 in reply to my censure: “It is true that I refuse to meet with Dr. Metzler because I will not make myself vulnerable to accusations of backroom deals. Public business is to be conducted in public.” My apprehensions about interactions outside of the public eye have been born out. Timberlane must surrender the security recording or stop trying to ruin my reputation and impede my service to Sandown. Have there been any sanctions against the employee who raised her voice to me?
