NEW CASTLE —
Editor, The News:
Why would our superintendent and school board protect those involved in the nonpayment of legally required tuition?
Is it possible that they willfully allowed this to happen?
The known violations of the public trust during George Gabriel’s administration makes it easy to believe that there was possible collusion.
Gabriel and a majority of the city school board have spent years embarrassing the district and city. The following are a few examples:
The attempted payments to the previous superintendent, the Roger Havey incident, million-dollar transportation deal, the abuse of travel allowances, swaptions, $100 million debt, sale of Ben Franklin, blatant nepotism.
The above are all documented in news articles and editorials.
Responsible public servants, when learning of the crime uncovered by the auditor general’s office, would have turned the findings over to the legal authorities for investigation, not hired high-priced attorneys.
It is inconceivable that we are going to have Gabriel representing us for four more years. He is a front runner for a position on the school board.
The only way he can be stopped is with a large turnout of independent voters and Democrats and Republicans who did not vote in the May primary.
Citizens should show their disdain for the political shenanigans that are ruining our community. There is no better way to stand up for New Castle than by voting for good government on Nov. 5.
