Dodson ‘unfit’ to serve HASD

As a former member of the Pennsylvania State Board of Education, I understand the power of our local school boards.

Therefore, I am compelled to explain why Kirk Dodson is unfit to be a director of the Hollidaysburg Area School District.

Having an active member of the teacher’s union on a local board presents an array of concerns regarding his personal loyalties, and importantly, the ethical conflict that exists since the decisions of the Hollidaysburg board impact union negotiations in our entire region, including negotiations for his own contract in the Altoona Area School District.

When I was in the Senate, his vulgarity and months-long harassment of my staff and me led us to seek help from the police.

Our children deserve much better than self-proclaimed liberal Democrat, Kirk Dodson.
