Letters: Kellis’ resignation was definitely justified action

Posted

No wonder DUSD Superintendent Quinn Kellis resigned — a $312,000 severance package, and he can say he didn’t get fired. 

He should have been fired by the last board and not been given an early extension. 

Mayor Skip Hall, Councilman Chris Judd and Vice Mayor Aly Cline: Keep your mouths shut when it comes to our kids. How dare you use your position on council to influence anyone in this city regarding Kellis’ failed leadership.

Word has gotten around that you all are doing what you can to push forward a recall on the current board. If this is true, you should resign. If it’s not true, then all three of you and anyone else on the council need to make an immediate statement that you do not agree with a recall and will still out of anything that has to do with Dysart.

I’m not the only one so very angry that you think it’s OK for you to try to influence anyone in this city when it comes to our schools. Maybe Mr. Judd is young enough to have had children under Kellis’ failed leadership but you, mayor, and you, Ms. Cline, absolutely do not.

Kellis’ resignation is a clear statement that he did not have a leg to stand on to secure his position. Why? Because of his grandiose ideas coming into Dysart with so little focus on the actual issues – the classrooms.

Ergo, he did not concern himself immediately with the issues with the children and the teachers. Instead, he came with a massive bond asking for millions.

If Kellis had actually focused on the children he would not have had to resign. Many of us feel sorry for the next district that makes the mistake of hiring him.

SURPRISE
