OH, I'M SORRY, I'M SORRY.

THIS IS A SPECIAL MEETING OF THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES MARCH 20, 2021.

[4. OPEN FORUM FOR AGENDA ITEMS ONLY]

MALCOLM CHAKERY.

GOOD EVENING, SCHOOL BOARD.

GOOD EVENING, MS. ELLIS, SCHOOL BOARD PRESIDENT, MR. KING, HOPEFULLY FOR NOT TOO MUCH LONGER, BUT I CAN'T SPEAK ON THAT.

I DON'T GET MUCH OF A VOICE.

SO I WANT TO START BY SAYING THAT I'VE HAD A LOT TO THINK ABOUT SINCE MARCH 10TH, A LOT TO THINK ABOUT. AND I CAN SEE THAT YOU'RE SMILING BEHIND THAT MASK.

BUT I JUST WANT TO SHARE WHAT OUR FAMILY HAS GONE THROUGH.

WE'VE HAD A LOT OF WORDS BACK AND FORTH ON SOCIAL MEDIA, AND I'M GOOD FOR THAT.

I KNOW THAT THERE'S PLENTY OF PEOPLE IN THIS ROOM THAT MIGHT NOT LIKE ME.

THEY MIGHT HATE ME. SOME OF THEM HAVE BEEN BANNED FROM MY GROUPS.

ONE OF THE TOP REASONS NOT TO LIKE ME, BUT ALL I'VE EVER SAID TO YOU WAS FACTS.

EVERYBODY KNOWS THAT THERE'S A CODE, A CODE THAT HAS NEVER CROSSED.

WE NEVER, EVER BRING KIDS INTO AN ADULT CONVERSATION AND USE THEM AS PAWNS IN YOUR VENDETTA AGAINST ME.

THAT'S A CODE. THAT'S NOT SOMETHING THAT WE HAVE TO SPEAK ABOUT.

IT'S AN UN. IT'S NOT EVEN SOMETHING THAT WE CAN CROSS.

SO FOR YOU AT THE LAST BOARD MEETING TO TRY TO GET ME ARRESTED FOR COMING TO TALK ABOUT AN ISSUE THAT YOU KNEW I WAS HERE TO TALK ABOUT, SAYS A LOT ABOUT YOUR CHARACTER, NOT MINE.

THEN YOU HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO LET ME ADDRESS IT IN THAT MEETING.

YOU DIDN'T WANT THAT TO HAPPEN.

YOU WOULDN'T WANT IT TO GET OUT THAT YOU FALSELY ACCUSED A KID, A STUDENT OF BULLYING OTHER STUDENTS. YOU HAVE AND I CAN'T TELL YOU HOW HARD IT IS FOR ME TO SIT HERE WHEN YOU THOUGHT THAT YOU WERE A MAN AND WANTED TO BRING IN A LITTLE CHILD INTO YOUR GAME.

OK, THAT'S NUMBER ONE.

NUMBER TWO FOR YOU TO BRING YOUR FAMILY INTO IT, FOR YOU TO USE YOUR SISTER TO HAVE HER MAKE UP FAKE FALSE PROFILES.

AND SHE'S HERE TONIGHT AND YOU KNOW THAT.

AND YOU'RE LAUGHING. IT'S REAL FUNNY, I'M SURE, TO HAVE HER TO MAKE FAKE FALSE PROFILES TO COME OUT AND TRY TO FURTHER YOUR AGENDA.

IT'S SICK. WHAT MAN IN THEIR RIGHT MIND DOES THAT? WHAT WHAT FAMILY MEMBER? I JUST CAN'T WAIT TO SEE WHAT OTHERS HAVE TO COME SAY.

I HOPE THAT COME THE NEXT MEETING, YOU'RE NOT SITTING IN THAT CHAIR.

I PRAY TO GOD YOU'RE NOT SITTING IN THAT CHAIR.

AND A COUPLE OF OTHER POINTS.

I WISHED IT WAS THIS EASY.

I WISH THAT EVERYONE WHO SUPPORTED BULLYING OR SUPPORTED USING CHILDREN AS A GAME WOULD ALL WEAR BRIGHT SHIRTS JUST LIKE THIS, SO THAT AS KIDS AND ADULTS WALK AROUND, THEY COULD EASILY SEE WHO SUPPORTS THE PREDATORS, WHO SUPPORTS THE PEOPLE WHO ARE GAME FOR BASHING CHILDREN ON THEIR OWN SOCIAL MEDIA.

FACEBOOK PAGE. AS A SITTING BOARD PRESIDENT, DO YOU NOT KNOW THE DIFFERENCE? DO YOU NOT UNDERSTAND THAT WE DON'T BRING KIDS INTO ADULT CONVERSATIONS? WHAT PART OF IT THAT IS NOT GETTING THROUGH TO YOU? BECAUSE AT THAT LAST MEETING YOU DIDN'T WANT ME TO TALK.

[00:05:01]

BUT YOU'RE SAYING A LOT TODAY BY SITTING THERE LAUGHING AND SMILING BEHIND YOUR MASK, WHICH, BY THE WAY, THE ATTORNEY THAT GAVE YOU FULL AUTHORIZATION TO DO THAT NEEDS TO BE FIRED. HE LEGALLY KNEW WHAT HE COULD AND COULDN'T DO, BUT HE GAVE YOU THAT INFORMATION THINKING THAT THAT WAS GOING TO WORK.

I DON'T THINK I CAN SAY ANYTHING ELSE AT THIS TIME, BUT I DO HOPE THAT WHATEVER SORT OF ISSUE THAT YOU HAVE, THAT YOU GET THAT CHECKED OUT BECAUSE YOU CAN CALL ME ALL THE NAMES IN THE BOOK, YOU MIGHT RECONSIDER BRINGING MY KIDS INTO IT NEXT TIME.

THAT'S ALL I GOT.

THANK YOU, MR. CHAKREY. MR. DWIGHT GERMER.

GOOD EVENING. THIS INSTANCE OF BULLYING IS APPALLING FOR SOMEBODY WHO SAYS THEY'RE A MAN.

I'VE REMOVED MY DAUGHTER FROM GRAND PRAIRIE ISD.

WHY? BECAUSE CHILDREN BULLYING, BUT FOR A SO-CALLED MAN, THAT'S UNACCEPTABLE.

IT'S APPALLING WHAT THE HECK YOU DID TO THE CHILD AND TO THE FAMILY, MALCOLM CHAKERY AND THE OTHERS, AND THE SAME WITH THE KING FAMILY.

THIS REINFORCES MY THOUGHT, GRAND PRAIRIE ISD SHOULD BE PUT OUT OF BUSINESS. MY TAX DOLLARS, IF IT'S REPRESENTED BY YOU, YOU'RE APPALLING.

MY TAX DOLLARS ARE LACED WITH YOU.

SITTING THERE TO REMOVE AARON FROM THIS BOARD WOULD BE TO KIND. HE SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO SERVE ON ANY COMMISSION OR POSITION IN THE CITY OF GRAND PRAIRIE OR TAKE THAT TO YOUR BED.

THANK YOU, MR. GERMER. NEXT MS. TRINA HALL.

SORRY, I HAVE TO KEEP MY MASK OFF SO I CAN SPEAK.

YES MA'AM.

OK. Y'ALL DON'T USUALLY SEE ME HERE.

THE SCHOOL BOARD, YOU USUALLY SEE ME AT THE CITY COUNCIL.

I SPEAK AGAINST INJUSTICE.

MR. KING, YOU HAVE PUT A SHAME.

SUSAN WOULD BE ASHAMED OF YOU FOR WHAT YOU DONE, BULLYING A FAMILY.

BULLYING A CHILD, MAKING UP LIES, CAUSING CONFLICTS.

AND WHAT ARE YOU TRYING TO PROVE THROUGH OUR SCHOOL DISTRICT WHERE OUR CHILDREN ARE SUPPOSE TO LOOK UP TO YOU AND LOOK UP TO THIS BOARD FOR PROPER EDUCATION ? AND Y'ALL HAVE WORKED.

HOW LONG FOR THIS? ABOUT BE KIND.

IT SAYS BE KIND.

OBVIOUSLY, IT WASN'T KIND WHAT YOU DID.

OK, YOU ALSO TELL KIDS BE KIND IN SCHOOL WHERE MANY CHILDREN ARE BEING BULLIED STILL BY THEIR PEERS, OTHER STUDENTS.

NOT ONLY THAT THEY'RE BEING BULLIED BY THEIR PEERS, THEY'RE BEING BULLIED BY THEIR TEACHERS. I HAD A GRANDSON WE HAD TO PULL OUT LAST YEAR, OUT OF THE ALL BOYS ACADEMY BECAUSE HE WAS ABUSED, MENTALLY ABUSED, BULLIED BY STUDENTS, BY THE TEACHERS.

HE CRIED FOR HELP.

HE ASKED FOR HELP.

HE DIDN'T GET THE HELP.

HE DID NOT GET THE HELP.

WE PULLED HIM OUT OF GRAND PRAIRIE SCHOOL DISTRICT, PUT HIM OVER IN ARLINGTON.

[00:10:03]

THIS YOUNG MAN, HIS GRADES WENT SKY HIGH DOING GREAT AND HAS A BETTER OUTLOOK IN LIFE WHERE HE COULD NOT GET IT HERE.

THAT'S A SHAME BECAUSE Y'ALL ALLOW PEOPLE TO BULLY EACH OTHER, NOT ONLY THE CHILDREN, THE SCHOOL TEACHERS.

NOW, EVEN A BOARD.

COME ON! THAT'S A POOR EXAMPLE.

YOU ARE A POOR EXAMPLE FOR OUR CITIES, FOR OUR SCHOOL BOARD, FOR OUR CHILDREN LOOK UP AT.

WE PAY TAXES.

HERE FOR OUR CITY.

THAT HAD THE QUALITY, QUALITY, SCHOOL TEACHING.

BETTER SAFE, SAFE SCHOOL BOARD, A SAFE SCHOOL SYSTEM WHERE OUR CHILDREN DO NOT HAVE TO BE AFRAID TO GO TO SCHOOL EACH DAY.

MY GRANDSON BEGGED NOT TO GO TO SCHOOL AND THAT WAS VERY PAINFUL.

I RAISED MY SON'S UP IN HERE AND I RAISED I HELPED RAISE MY GRANDSON.

I HAD NINE GRANDCHILDREN.

ALL MY GRANDCHILDREN WENT TO SCHOOL HERE, OK? NOW I HAVE GREAT GRANDDAUGHTERS.

I HAD TWO SPECIAL, GREAT GRANDDAUGHTERS THAT'S IN OUR SCHOOL SYSTEM HERE.

BUT THEY'RE SPECIAL.

I HAVE A SPECIAL GRANDSON HERE AND HE'S NOT GETTING THE PROPER EDUCATION BECAUSE OF COVID.

HE CANNOT HAVE ONE ON ONE TEACHING.

HE DON'T KNOW HOW TO WORK THE VIDEO OR THE TABLET.

HE'S AUTISTIC.

HE CANNOT UNDERSTAND HOW TO DO IT.

SO WHEN YOU, WHEN Y'ALL TOOK THAT AWAY FROM HIM, YOU TOOK AWAY FROM HIM LEARNING A PROPER EDUCATION. SO I'M ASKING YOU, BOARD, TO GET RID OF YOU.

HAVE A GOOD DAY THANK YOU, MS. HALL. NEXT WE HAVE MS. JULIE HOLTON.

HELLO, MY NAME'S JULIE HOLTON, BEEN A RESIDENT OF GRAND PRAIRIE ALL MY LIFE.

GRADUATED FROM SOUTH GRAND PRAIRIE HIGH SCHOOL IN 1980.

ANY OF YOU WENT TO GRAND PRAIRIE HIGH SCHOOL OR GRAND PRAIRIE SCHOOL DISTRICT IN THE 50S? MY GRANDFATHER DROVE A BUS THAT PICKED YOU UP AND TOOK YOU TO SCHOOL.

I'M HERE ABOUT THE ISSUE OF PEOPLE ON THE SCHOOL BOARD USING SOCIAL MEDIA TO BULLY FAMILIES.

AARON, I'M REALLY ASHAMED THAT THAT HAPPENED, THAT YOU LET YOURSELF GET OUT OF CONTROL AND LET THIS HAPPEN.

YOU KNOW, WE HAVE A LOT OF BULLYING GOING ON IN OUR SCHOOLS.

MY GRANDSON IS A SENIOR IN HIGH SCHOOL RIGHT NOW IN GRAND PRAIRIE.

HE'S. I CAN'T TALK TOO MUCH ABOUT THAT BECAUSE HE'D GET UPSET.

HE STILL HAS PROBLEMS TODAY FROM BEING BULLIED AT TRUMAN.

YOU CAN'T COME UP AND TOUCH MY GRANDSON BECAUSE HE'S BEEN BULLIED.

THERE IS A HUGE PROBLEM WITH BULLYING IN THE SCHOOL DISTRICT, AND I'M ON SOCIAL MEDIA AND QUITE OF A FEW SITES.

AND THERE'S BULLYING BETWEEN EVERYONE.

I MEAN, HOW CAN YOU GUYS WANT TO BE IN CHARGE OF STOPPING BULLYING IN OUR SCHOOL AND LIKE TO TALK ABOUT THE BE KIND IF WE'RE NOT EVEN KIND TO EACH OTHER? AND I'M REALLY SORRY THAT THAT IT HAPPENED AND MALCOLM'S FAMILY HAS BEEN AFFECTED . LIKE I SAID, YOU KNOW, YOU DON'T JUST GET BULLIED AT SCHOOL, YOU GET BULLIED, I MEAN,

[00:15:03]

THERE'S BULLYING GOING ON ONLINE ALL THE TIME.

WE SHOULD BE, AS ADULTS, TAKING RESPONSIBILITY ONLINE.

I MEAN, HOW CAN WE STOP BULLYING IN THE SCHOOLS IF WE'RE BULLYING OURSELVES? I THINK, AARON, I THINK ANYONE THAT DOES THAT JUST ISN'T A GREAT ROLE MODEL FOR OUR KIDS.

BUT I THINK JUST. THINK ABOUT WHAT HAS GONE ON.

BECAUSE IT'S NOT RIGHT.

LIKE I SAID, THE BULLYING IS AFFECTED MY FAMILY.

AND I TRY MY BEST ONLINE TO KEEP THAT DOWN BECAUSE I'VE CAUGHT MYSELF DOING IT, TOO.

YOU KNOW, YOU GET WRAPPED UP AND YOU JUST WANT TO LASH OUT AND WE'VE ALL GOTTEN USED TO THIS PLACE. WE ARE SAFE HERE IN OUR HOUSES WHERE WE CAN SAY ANYTHING AND WE DON'T HAVE TO TAKE ANY RESPONSIBILITY BECAUSE WE'RE JUST TYPING IT ON OUR PHONE OR OUR COMPUTER.

BUT I THINK YOU NEED TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY.

FOR WHAT YOU DID.

I THANK THE, ALL OF YOU GUYS FOR LETTING ME SPEAK TONIGHT.

THANK YOU AND PLEASE, LET'S REALLY DO SOMETHING ABOUT THE BULLYING IN SCHOOLS.

THANK YOU. THANK YOU, MS. HOLTON.

THANK YOU. NEXT, MS. CINDY KING.

GOOD EVENING. BOARD PRESIDENT, SUPERINTENDENT ELLIS, BOARD MEMBERS, THANK YOU FOR LETTING ME SPEAK. MY NAME IS CINDY KING.

I'M AN EDUCATOR AND ADMINISTRATOR, A PASTOR'S WIFE, AND I'M ALSO A MOTHER.

STANDING HERE READING THIS IS HARD FOR ME TO DO.

I'VE KEPT QUIET ABOUT THIS AND NOT SAID A WORD FOR OVER TWO YEARS.

AND I FEEL LIKE THE LEVEL OF ATTACK ON MY FAMILY HAS ESCALATED AND IT'S CONTINUAL.

I MUST START FROM THE BEGINNING.

I WAS WORKING AT YOUNG MAN'S LEADERSHIP ACADEMY AS AN ACADEMIC FACILITATOR.

A 15 YEAR EDUCATOR IN GRAND PRAIRIE.

WHEN MY SON AARON RAN FOR SCHOOL BOARD.

MALCOLM WAS INTRODUCED TO MY SON AT THAT TIME, EVEN THOUGH THEY HAD SEEN EACH OTHER AT SOME PUBLIC EVENTS BEFORE THAT.

THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THEM BECAME STRAINED WHEN ONE OF MALCOLM'S FRIENDS, WHO WAS ALSO A BOARD MEMBER, STARTED GOING TO LINKS ALL LINKS TO EXPOSE OUR SUPERINTENDENT IN A NEGATIVE LIGHT, BOTH PERSONALLY AND WORK RELATED.

AARON STOOD IN OPPOSITION OF THIS AND SOON BECAME A TARGET FOR MALCOLM.

IN THE BOARDROOM, ON SOCIAL MEDIA AND AT HIS WORKPLACE.

HIS WORKPLACE IS NOT EVEN IN GRAND PRAIRIE.

MALCOLM CALLED IN MY SON'S WORK SO OFTEN THAT THEY HAD TO BLOCK HIM.

WHEN THIS DIDN'T SATISFY HIM, HE WENT AFTER ME, I REALIZED THAT IT WAS ACTUALLY ANOTHER ATTACK ON THE ADMINISTRATION OF GRAND PRAIRIE, BUT IT QUICKLY BECAME PERSONAL AND I'M ONLY ONE AMONG MANY THAT HE'S DONE THIS TO.

HE ACTUALLY ASKED FOR MY PERSONAL RECORDS.

HE COULD NOT GET THEM, SO HE ASKED FOR MY PAY RECORDS.

INSTEAD OF CALLING ME TO FIND OUT ABOUT MY SALARY, HE POSTED IT ON SOCIAL MEDIA IN A NEGATIVE LIGHT TWO YEARS LATER.

IT'S ALREADY BEEN EXAMINED BY GPISD.

TWO YEARS LATER, HE'S STILL POSTING IT.

SO I'M GOING TO SHARE SOME INFORMATION, SOME DETAILS THAT I SHOULDN'T HAVE TO SHARE RIGHT NOW. BUT I WANT TO SHARE IT JUST TO GET IT DONE.

I RECEIVED MY PRINCIPAL CERTIFICATION WITH MY M.ED.

AND I RECEIVED A NEW POSITION, AT YOUNG MAN'S LEADERSHIP ACADEMY AS ACADEMIC FACILITATOR.

AND THIS ALL HAPPENED IN A TWO YEAR PERIOD.

[00:20:01]

A MONTH WAS ADDED TO MY TIME.

I WAS USED TO HAVING SIX TO SEVEN WEEKS OFF IN THE SUMMER, BUT I WORKED AN EXTRA MONTH AFTER TAKING THAT POSITION.

WHAT HE COULD NOT SEE IN MY PERSONNEL RECORDS WAS THAT I AM A GOOD EMPLOYEE.

I HAVE A GOOD WORK HISTORY, AND HALF OF THAT RAISE THAT WAS GIVEN TO ME AS AN ACADEMIC FACILITATOR WENT TO EVERY ACADEMIC FACILITATOR IN GRAND PRAIRIE.

THE OTHER HALF WAS TO MAKE MY SALARY COMPATABLE TO THEIRS.

I ALSO HAVE A GOOD WORK HISTORY.

I HAD DURING THAT TIME SOME HIGHER ADMINISTRATIVE STAFF COMING TO MY SCHOOL OFTEN, AND THIS WAS PRIOR TO MY SON EVER GETTING ON THE BOARD.

THEY WERE COMING TO OBSERVE ME UNDER THE SUPERINTENDENT'S INSTRUCTIONS TO SEE HOW I HANDLED MY NEW ADMINISTRATIVE ROLE AS A NEW TESTING COORDINATOR, AS THE ACADEMIC FACILITATOR. AND I HAVE TO SAY, I'M GOOD AT MY JOB.

I'M GOOD AT MY JOB BECAUSE I LOVE MY JOB.

I LOVE EDUCATION.

BUT NOT ONCE IN THE PAST TWO YEARS HAS HE EVER ASKED ME TO EXPLAIN MY SALARY TO HIM.

HE'S CHATTED OPENLY WITH MY FRIENDS ON SOCIAL MEDIA ABOUT WHY I WOULD HAVE RECEIVED SUCH A SALARY. AND I CONSIDER THAT HARASSMENT, ACTUALLY, BECAUSE MY FRIENDS ARE CALLING ME AND TELLING ME THAT HE IS ASKING THEM ABOUT ME ON SOCIAL MEDIA.

I'M GETTING POSTS, PEOPLE ARE SENDING ME COPIES OF WHAT HE'S SAYING ON THERE.

AND AGAIN, I FEEL LIKE HE'S TRYING TO TARNISH MY INTEGRITY AND THAT OF MY FAMILY.

HE CALLED MY CURRENT SCHOOL RECENTLY, AT THE BEGINNING OF THIS YEAR, AND TOLD SOMEONE AT MY SCHOOL THAT I DID NOT LIKE HIM.

I WAS SHOCKED AS TO WHERE HE WOULD HAVE RECEIVED THIS INFORMATION.

AND I KIND OF HEARD IT AGAIN TONIGHT.

BUT YOU SEE, I DO NOT BELIEVE THAT I NOR MY HUSBAND HAVE EVER RESPONDED NEGATIVELY TO MALCOLM CHAKERY ON SOCIAL MEDIA OR IN PERSON.

RECENTLY, HE HAS STARTED IT UP AGAIN BECAUSE OF A NEW POLITICAL RACE THAT MY FAMILY WAS INVOLVED IN, NOT AARON, MY HUSBAND FINISH UP, MS. KING, AND THEN.

IT HAS REACHED THE POINT THAT I FEAR FOR MY FAMILY.

HE CALLED MY SCHOOL RECENTLY REQUESTING A DOCUMENT AND SPECIFICALLY SAID.

WE GOTTA STOP TIME'S UP. TIME'S UP.

I JUST WANT TO SAY, I PRAY FOR HIM.

ALL RIGHT. THIS WILL MOVE US TO ACTION ITEMS. ACTION ITEM FIVE TO DISCUSS, CONSIDER TAKING ACTION ON POSSIBLE DISCIPLINE

[5.A. Discuss and Consider Taking Action on Possible Discipline of the Board President.]

OF THE BOARD PRESIDENT. MR. PRESIDENT? MR. ESPINOSA? I MAKE A MOTION.

IT'S IN THE BEST INTEREST OF THIS DISTRICT FOR OUR PRESIDENT TO STEP DOWN AND IT WILL ALLOW US TO FINISH THE TERM.

MR. PRESIDENT? HE MADE THE MOTION THAT I WAS GOING TO MAKE AND I'M GOING TO SECOND THAT MOTION.

OH, NO.

HE DID NOT. HE DIDN'T MAKE A MOTION.

I MADE A MOTION. I WANT TO MAKE A MOTION.

[INAUDIBLE] HE DID MAKE A MOTION. OK, RESTATE THE MOTION.

I DON'T THINK. LET ME MAKE THIS CLEAR.

YES. LET ME MAKE A MOTION.

NO, NO. NO, NO, NO. WE'LL RESTATE HIS.

OK. SO YOU CAN HEAR IT.

OK, MR. PRESIDENT.

MR. ESPINOZA? MEMBERS OF THE BOARD, IT IS IN THE BEST INTEREST OF THE DISTRICT THAT OUR BOARD PRESIDENT STEP DOWN, MR. AARON KING, AND LET EMILY LILES FINISH THE TERM.

I HAVE A MOTION. DO I HAVE A SECOND? DO I HAVE A SECOND? AND DO WHAT'S RIGHT FOR KIDS.

I DO NOT HAVE A SECOND, MR. ESPINOSA, THAT MOTION WILL FAIL.

OK, MR. PRESIDENT, I MOVE THAT THE BORDER TRUSTEE CENSURE TRUSTEE AARON KING FOR A VIOLATION OF THE BOARD'S CODE OF ETHICS BOARD POLICY [INAUDIBLE] LOCAL CONCERNING HIS RECENT FACEBOOK POST AND HIS ACTIONS DURING THE PUBLIC FORUM AT THE MARCH 18, 2021 BOARD MEETING.

SECOND.

MOTION BY MS. CARRILLO AND A SECOND BY MR. PARRA. AT THIS TIME, I'LL ENTERTAIN SOME DISCUSSION.

MS. PRESIDENT. MR. BROOKS. THINKING ABOUT THIS.

FOR THE LAST COUPLE OF HOURS, PROBABLY LONGER THAN THAT, AND I WANT TO MAKE AN APOLOGY TO START WITH, AND I MAYBE EVEN WANT TO CONSIDER TO AMEND THE MOTION THAT I BE INCLUDED IN THAT CENSURE ALSO.

IS BECAUSE THAT, YES, THE PRESIDENT HAS THE GAVEL, BUT THE PRESIDENT ALSO SERVES AT THE

[00:25:01]

PLEASURE OF THIS BOARD, I DISAGREED AND STILL DISAGREE, I DISAGREED AT THE TIME AND STILL DO ABOUT NOT LETTING MR. CHAKERY SPEAK THAT NIGHT.

AND I DID NOTHING TO DEFEND HIS RIGHT TO SPEAK.

SO WITH THAT, I APOLOGIZE, AND I WOULD ALSO SAY THAT I WOULD BY NOT DOING ANYTHING IS JUST AS WRONG AS ANYBODY, SO I WOULD BE, I WOULD LIKE THIS BOARD TO CONSIDER ALSO THE AMENDED MOTION OF MYSELF BEING CENSURED AND ALSO.

MR. HALL? [INAUDIBLE].

OK, ALL RIGHT, SO I HAVE A MOTION BY MR. BROOKS TO AMEND THE ORIGINAL MOTION AND TO INCLUDE MR. BROOKS IN THE CENSORSHIP.

DO I HAVE A SECOND ON THAT MOTION? EXCUSE ME.

MR. HALL? I WOULD LIKE TO FURTHER AMEND THAT MOTION TO INCLUDE MYSELF.

IF WE'RE GOING TO DO THAT, BECAUSE AS MR. BROOKS SAID, FIRST OF ALL, AS FAR AS THE MARCH 10TH POST, WHAT WAS SAID IS ACTUALLY A PART OF OUR PUBLIC RECORD.

IT'S IN OUR MINUTES FROM 2018 NOVEMBER 2018.

I DON'T DISAGREE WITH ANYTHING HE SAID IN HIS POST.

AFTER ALL, WE'VE GOT TO HAVE A SECOND ON THE MOTION.

ONE MOTION AT A TIME.

WELL, I'M EXPLAINING WHY WE NEED TO AMEND, FURTHER AMEND THE MOTION.

CAN I NOT DO THAT? NOT UNTIL A SECOND MOTION IS MADE.

SO DO I HAVE A SECOND ON MR. BROOKS' AMENDMENT TO THE ORIGINAL MOTION? OK, THAT MOTION WILL FAIL.

MR. BROOKS.

FURTHER DISCUSSION? YEAH. SO IF WE'RE GOING TO AGAIN, BACK TO THAT POST ON MARCH 10TH.

WHAT WAS SAID IN THAT POST IS A PART OF OUR PUBLIC RECORD.

YOU CAN READ IT IN OUR MINUTES FROM THE MEETING THAT NIGHT ON NOVEMBER 18TH.

SO IT IS PART OF THAT RECORD.

I WILL TELL YOU RIGHT NOW, I'VE REPEATED WHAT'S IN THAT RECORD AT LEAST 100 TIMES BECAUSE IT'S PART OF OUR RECORD. IT'S IN OUR MINUTES.

SO, YOU KNOW, AND I WOULD YOU KNOW, I JUST THINK THAT IT'S, I WOULD BE CONSIDERED JUST AS GUILTY OF WHAT HE SAID IN HIS POST, BECAUSE I'VE SAID IT 100 TIMES.

IT'S 100 PERCENT ACCURATE.

IN REGARDS TO MR. CHAKERY NOT BEING ABLE TO SPEAK AT THAT LAST MEETING.

AGAIN, WITH WHAT MR. BROOKS SAID. HE'S A HUNDRED PERCENT RIGHT.

THAT'S ON ALL OF US.

SO IF HE'S GUILTY FOR NOT LETTING HIM SPEAK, I'M GUILTY FOR NOT LETTING HIM SPEAK AS WELL. I THINK THAT'S THIS WHOLE BOARD.

AND.

SO I, EXCUSE ME. SO THAT WOULD BE MY REQUESTED AMENDMENT TO THESE MOTIONS TO INCLUDE MYSELF.

OK, SO I HAVE AMENDED A MOTION BY MR. HALL TO CENSURE IN ADDITION TO THE BOARD PRESIDENT, MR. BROOKS AND MR. HALL.

IT'S A WILD FIELD.

OK. SO TO CENSURE MR. HALL.

DO I HAVE A SECOND ON THAT MOTION? DO I HAVE A SECOND ON THAT MOTION? OK THAT MOTION WILL FAIL BACK TO THE ORIGINAL MOTION.

ANY DISCUSSION? MAY I REPEAT THE MOTION? YES, MA'AM. YES. I MOVE THAT THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES CENSURE TRUSTEE AARON KING FOR A VIOLATION OF THE BOARD OF CONDUCT OF ETHICS BOARD POLICY LOCAL CONCERNING THE RECENT FACEBOOK POST AND HIS ACTION DURING PUBLIC FORUM AT THE MARCH 18 BOARD MEETING. I SECOND.

THAT IS MY MOTION, I SECOND.

I STILL HAVE THE ORIGINAL SECOND.

OK, ANY OTHER DISCUSSION? YES, MR. PRESIDENT? MR. ESPINOSA.

I BELIEVE THAT, YOU KNOW, WHAT MR..

WHAT OUR BOARD MEMBER SAID HERE AT EACH CORNER.

AT THE TIME OF THE MEETING.

OUR LEGAL COUNSEL WAS NOT PRESENT FOR US TO TRY TO TELL HIM THAT, LET THE RESIDENT SPEAK.

SO TO ALL OF US, TAKE THE BLAME.

YOU KNOW, IT'S IT'S KIND OF, YOU KNOW, NOT RIGHT TO SIT THERE.

AND BECAUSE HAD THE ATTORNEY BEEN BACK HERE, WHICH AT MANY BOARD MEETINGS, YOU CAN LOOK UP AT OUR RECORDS AT AND OUR PREVIOUS BOARD MEETINGS.

I'M ALWAYS IN THE EAR OF OUR ATTORNEY.

AND THERE WAS ACTUALLY ONE BOARD MEETING THAT MR. BROOKS TRIED TO CENSOR A CITIZEN.

AND I IMMEDIATELY TOLD OUR LEGAL COUNSEL SO THAT AT THE TIME OF THE MEETING, NO, OUR LEGAL COUNSEL WAS NOT AROUND TO ASK HIM THAT QUESTION LEGALLY, TO LET MR.

[00:30:05]

CHAKERY SPEAK.

AND SO WITH THAT BEING SAID, I WANT TO START OFF BY THANKING OUR LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS. WE HAD EXTRA SECURITY HERE, WHICH IS UNNECESSARY.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR WORK, GUYS.

THIS MEETING WAS UNNECESSARY BECAUSE WE SHOULD BE FOCUSED ON STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT AND NOT LET EMOTIONS GET TO US.

AND THAT'S WHAT HAPPENED HERE TONIGHT.

AND WE CAN'T ACT ON EMOTIONS, BUT WE GOT TO FOCUS ON STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT AND KIDS.

AND SO THAT'S THE FAILED PART OF WHAT HAPPENED.

AND WE NEED TO FOCUS ON READING, WRITING, MATH, 3RD GRADE, FIFTH GRADE.

THAT SHOULD BE OUR MAIN FOCUS, OUR PICKING OUR NUMBERS UP.

SO, YOU KNOW, WITH THAT BEING SAID, I'M READY TO VOTE, MR. PRESIDENT? MS. LILES. THIS IS SOMETHING THAT THE BOARD HAS BEEN DEALING WITH FOR SEVEN DAYS.

WHICH, IN MY OPINION, IS SEVEN DAYS TOO LONG.

I AGREE WITH MR. BROOKS, EVERY SINGLE ONE OF US HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO ALLOW MR. CHAKERY TO SPEAK AT THE BOARD MEETING, AND NOBODY SAID ANYTHING.

REGARDLESS OF WHY OR WHAT OUR REASONINGS WERE, AT THE END OF THE DAY, WE DID NOT SPEAK.

AND THAT'S ON ME.

I'M NOT GOING TO SPEAK FOR THE BOARD MEMBERS, BUT THAT'S ON ME.

I CAN GUARANTEE YOU THAT WON'T HAPPEN AGAIN, NOT AS LONG AS I'M SITTING IN THIS SEAT.

UNFORTUNATELY, SOMETHING THAT IS PERSONAL HAS BECOME POLITICIZED.

AND IT'S UNFORTUNATE BECAUSE IT HAS TAKEN US AWAY FROM OUR JOB OF A TRUSTEE AND THAT WE ARE HERE TO MAKE SURE THAT OUR CHILDREN ARE ACHIEVING AT THE LEVEL WE WANT THEM TO ACHIEVE THAT. WE'RE HERE TO MAKE SURE THAT OUR DISTRICT RUNS AND IS FINANCIALLY STABLE AND IT'S TAKING AWAY FROM ALL OF THAT.

WITH THAT SAID, I THINK OUR BOARD PRESIDENT, WHO HAS DONE A GREAT JOB OF LEADING THIS BOARD. HE HAS MADE A POOR DECISION.

HE HAS MADE A MISTAKE, AND EVERY SINGLE ONE OF US IN THIS ROOM HAS MADE A MISTAKE.

AND GRACE SHOULD BE EXTENDED WHEN MISTAKES ARE MADE, HOWEVER, WITH THE EXTENSION OF GRACE, THERE SHOULD COME ACCOUNTABILITY FOR ONE'S ACTIONS.

SO WHILE I APPRECIATE YOU SITTING HERE AND LISTENING TO ALL OF THIS, BECAUSE I KNOW IT'S HARD, I'VE HAD TO DO IT TO.

I NEED YOU TO KNOW THAT NOTHING IS PERSONAL, THIS IS PROFESSIONAL, AND I CHOOSE TO SUPPORT THE MOTION THAT MS. CARRILLO HAS BROUGHT FORTH.

THANK YOU LIKE MS. LILES. ANY OTHER DISCUSSION? WELL, JUST TO PIGGYBACK OFF WHAT EMILY SAID, THIS ISN'T PERSONAL.

THIS HAS TO DO WITH, YOU KNOW, OUR DISTRICT AND WHAT'S IN THE BEST INTERESTS OF CHILDREN ANY OTHER DISCUSSION? OK, I'D LIKE TO SPEAK ON MY BEHALF NOW.

DEAR GPISD STAFF, PARENTS, CONSTITUENTS OF VARIOUS COMMUNITY MEMBERS.

I FIRST WANT TO APOLOGIZE TO MY FELLOW BOARD MEMBERS.

I POSTED ON MY PERSONAL FACEBOOK PAGE ON MARCH 10TH.

I NEVER CONSIDERED HOW MY POST MIGHT REFLECT ON THE SCHOOL BOARD.

AND FOR THAT I AM SORRY, SINCE I HAVE WILLINGLY ALLOWED THE BOARD TO CENSURE ME, I WANT TO TAKE A MOMENT TO LET YOU KNOW WHAT CENSORSHIP IS, NOT JUST OK WITH ME, BUT WELCOMED.

SINCE I'VE BEEN ON THE SCHOOL BOARD, I HAVE HEARD VARIOUS ATTACKS FROM ONE PERSON ON GPISD STAFF. IF THE CALLS FOR STANDING UP FOR THEM IS TO BE CENSURED, I'LL GLADLY ACCEPT THE CENSORSHIP. TEACHERS AND STAFF SHOULD NOT HAVE TO LIVE IN A WORLD WHERE LIKING A SCHOOL BOARD MEMBERS POSTS GETS EMAILS TO THEIR BOSS, ASKING THEM FOR ASKING THEM TO BE REPRIMANDED AND FIRED.

THEY SHOULD NOT HAVE TO ENDURE HARASSING PHONE CALLS, PERSONAL ATTACKS ON THEIR SOCIAL MEDIA ACCOUNTS, BEING CALLED NAMES, BEING BELITTLED AND SPOKEN TO LIKE TRASH.

IN ESSENCE, THEY SHOULD NOT BE BULLIED.

I WILL NOT STAND FOR IT, ESPECIALLY WHILE THEY ARE TRYING TO DO THEIR JOB.

AS A BUSINESS OWNER, I TAKE PRIDE IN THE OWNERSHIP IN MY WORK, MY EMPLOYEES AND IN MY COMPANY. I ECHO THE SAME LEVEL OF OWNERSHIP WHEN SERVING THE COMMUNITY, SPECIFICALLY GPISD WITH A SERVANTS HEART.

THESE ARE MY EMPLOYEES AND I DO NOT TAKE THAT LIGHTLY.

TEACHERS AND STAFF NO LONGER SHALL YOU FEEL FEAR.

THE HARASSMENT FROM THIS PERSON.

YOU ARE HEARD AND YOU ARE NOT ALONE IN THE FIGHT AGAINST THIS BULLY.

IF I'M THE ONLY ONE STANDING, I'LL BE STANDING WITH YOU.

WHEN YOU FEEL ALONE IN THE FIGHT, KNOW I'M HERE FIGHTING WITH YOU.

AS FAR AS NOT ALLOWING A COMMUNITY MEMBER TO SPEAK AT A BOARD MEETING, I FOLLOW THE BOARD

[00:35:04]

POLICY THAT IS STATED ON THE GPISD WEBSITE.

THIS IS A LOCAL POLICY THAT I DID NOT PUT IN PLACE, BUT THAT THIS BOARD PUT INTO PLACE.

I WAS SIMPLY ENFORCING THE POLICY AS MY ROLE AS THE PRESIDENT.

IF THE BOARD WOULD LIKE FOR ME OR ANY OTHER PRESIDENT FOR THAT MATTER, TO BEND THESE RULES OR MAKE THE EXCEPTIONS, THEN IT'S POSSIBLE THAT BOARD OR THAT POLICY NEEDS REVISION. BUT FOR NOW, IF FOLLOWING THE RULES WAS WRONG, THEN I GLADLY ACCEPT BEING CENSURED AS AN ELECTED OFFICIAL.

I UNDERSTAND THAT. I SIGN IT TO BE RIDICULED, PICKED APART AND CHASTISED.

NO ELECTED OFFICIAL WILL EVER MAKE ANYONE, EVERYONE HAPPY.

THERE WAS A PETITION TO HAVE ME REMOVED FROM THE BENCH BY THIS MAN.

I WONDER HOW HE WOULD FEEL IF SOMEONE DID THE SAME FOR HIM AS HE IS A REPRESENTATIVE OF THE PARKS AND RECREATION BOARD OF THE CITY OF GRAND PRAIRIE.

AFTER MAKING A POST ON FACEBOOK THAT HE WAS OFFENDED BY, HE CHOSE TO CALL AND EMAIL MY PLACE OF EMPLOYMENT IN AN EFFORT TO HAVE ME REPRIMANDED AND EVEN FIRED.

WHEN THAT DIDN'T PAN OUT, HE THREATENED TO HARM OUR SOCIAL MEDIA IMAGE BY STATING, AND I QUOTE, I CONSIDER OFFERING FREE ADVERTISING TO OUR FORTY FOUR THOUSAND FOLLOWERS, TO YOUR COMPETITORS AND SHARING THE CHARACTER OF MR. KING WHERE HE WORKS AND ALL OF HIS FOLLOWERS.

FOLLOWERS, MEANING THE GRAND PRAIRIE NEWS.

HE HARASSED MY WORKPLACE TO A DEGREE THAT HIS NUMBER HAD TO BE BLOCKED AND THEN HE CONTINUED TO CALL ANONYMOUSLY.

I AM NOT SURE WHAT KIND OF PERSON SEEKS OUT TO DESTROY A MAN'S LIVELIHOOD THAT SUPPORTS HIS WIFE AND FOUR CHILDREN BECAUSE OF A POST HE DIDN'T LIKE ON SOCIAL MEDIA.

SADLY, THIS IS WHAT OUR TEACHERS AND STAFF ARE ALSO BEING THREATENED WITH ON A DAILY BASIS. I KNOW THIS IS PART OF BEING AN ELECTED OFFICIAL.

HOWEVER, WHEN IT COMES TO BEING ATTACKED IN THIS CAPACITIES, OUR FAMILY DID NOT SIGN UP FOR THE SAME. ONE MAN IN OUR COMMUNITY HAS NOT JUST TRIED TO FIND FAULT IN US, BUT ALSO IN OUR MOTHERS, OUR FATHERS AND OTHER FAMILY MEMBERS.

THIS IS SIMPLY WRONG.

HOW MANY OF YOU WOULD SIT BY SOMEONE TEARS YOUR FAMILY DOWN? WITHOUT EVER SAYING A WORD OR TRYING TO HELP PEOPLE UNDERSTAND YOUR SIDE, ESPECIALLY WHEN ALL OF THE FACTS THAT HAVE BEEN GIVEN ARE NOT EVEN THE TRUTH? THIS PERSON HAS REQUESTED MY MOTHER'S SERVICE RECORDS AND PERFORMANCE REVIEWS BECAUSE THESE ARE THE DOCUMENTS THAT CAN'T BE REQUESTED.

HE, WITHOUT EVEN ASKING FOR HER SIDE OF THE STORY, MADE UP HIS OWN NARRATIVE ABOUT WHAT HE THOUGHT HAPPENED. MY MOTHER IS A 20 YEAR EMPLOYEE OF THIS DISTRICT.

SHE HAS NEVER BEEN REPRIMANDED FOR ANYTHING DURING HER EMPLOYMENT.

SHE IS WELL LIKED BY THOSE THAT KNOW HER AND HAVE INTERACTED WITH HER.

I WAS ONLY DOING WHAT I FEEL ANYONE WOULD DO TO PROTECT THEIR FAMILY.

AS A MATTER OF FACT, ON MARCH 24TH, MY MOTHER WAS CALLED AND REQUESTED TO PERSONALLY SIGN A STATEMENT THAT A CHILD WAS NOT BULLIED.

THIS PERSON WAS INSISTENT THAT MY MOTHER BE THE ONE TO SIGN THE STATEMENT.

IF DEFENDING MY MOTHER'S HONOR AFTER FALSELY BEING ACCUSED WAS WRONG, I WOULD GLADLY ACCEPT BEING CENSORED. AS FAR AS THE POST WAS MADE ON MARCH 10TH, THAT WAS REMOVED JUST HOURS A FEW HOURS AFTER IT WAS POSTED.

I WOULD LIKE TO CLEAR UP A FEW MISUNDERSTANDINGS.

FIRST, I CHOSE TO REMOVE THE POST BECAUSE SAID PERSON'S DAUGHTER HERSELF COMMENTED ON THE PUBLIC POST.

AS A GPISD SCHOOL BOARD MEMBER HAS ALWAYS BEEN MY PRACTICE TO NEVER DIRECTLY COMMUNICATE WITH ANY STUDENT IN OUR DISTRICT UNLESS THERE IS A PERSONAL FRIENDSHIP AND UNDERSTANDING WITH THE FAMILY. THEREFORE, I BLOCKED THIS YOUNG LADY FROM BEING ABLE TO VIEW MY FACEBOOK PAGE AND ALSO REMOVED THE POST.

HOWEVER, I DON'T DISAGREE WITH WHAT I STATED.

SECONDLY, I DID NOT COMMIT ANY FERPA VIOLATIONS.

I NEVER RELEASED THE CHILD'S NAME, GENDER OR WHAT THE ACTIONS WERE OR WHAT THE PUNISHMENT WAS. IT WAS ONLY THAT THE BOARD NOT GIVING DEMANDS OF THE CHILD'S FATHER IS WHY HE CHOSE TO MAKE GPISD'S BOARD AND ITS EMPLOYEES, MYSELF AND MY FAMILY, A TARGET FOR HIS HATE SPEECH, ACCUSATIONS AND BULLYING.

ALMOST TWO AND A HALF YEARS AGO, ON NOVEMBER 8TH, 2018, A STUDENT CAME TO OUR BOARD MEETING AND MADE A PRESENTATION DURING OPEN FORUM REGARDING NON AGENDA ITEMS. I WENT TO THE GPISD WEBSITE AND I FOUND THOSE MINUTES ON THE SCHOOL BOARD PUBLIC ARCHIVE.

AND LET ME READ TO YOU.

LET ME READ THEM TO YOU NOW.

AND I QUOTE FROM THE MINUTES.

MISS MOLLY CHAKERY, STUDENT, ADDRESSED THE BOARD REGARDING BULLYING, WHICH SHE BELIEVES IS BEING USED AS A BLANKET TERM.

EVERY TIME SOMEONE IS OFFENDED, IS CLASSIFIED AS BULLYING, AND THE BULLY IS PUNISHED AS IF IT IS. SHE BELIEVED BULLYING IS USING POWER OVER SOMEONE AND THAT TALKING ABOUT SOMEONE IS NOT REALLY BULLYING, BUT JUST FREEDOM OF SPEECH.

SHE SHARES A RECENT INCIDENT WHERE SHE WAS ACCUSED OF BULLYING ANOTHER STUDENT AND WAS ASSIGNED ISS AS A RESULT, MOLLY SAID SHE WAS JUST PLAYING AROUND AND HUMILIATED THE OTHER STUDENT, ALTHOUGH SHE DIDN'T MEAN TO.

SHE TALKED ABOUT THE PUNISHMENT FOR BULLYING AND THE OTHER OFFENSES AND HOW IT AFFECTS THE STUDENTS AS WELL AS SOCIETY.

PUNISHMENT DOESN'T WORK.

CHILDREN ARE BEGGING FOR ATTENTION.

SHE SAID, INSTEAD OF PUNISHING CHILDREN THAT HAVE OFFENDED SOMEONE TO LISTEN TO THEM AND LOOK FOR THE WHY NOT THE WHAT, UNQUOTE.

THESE ARE PUBLIC MINUTES AT THE SCHOOL BOARD APPROVED AT ANYONE WITH INTERNET ACCESS CAN SEE NOTHING IN MY POST REVEALED MORE THAN WHAT I WAS TOLD BY THE STUDENT HERSELF ON THAT DAY. I NEVER LOOKED FURTHER INTO THE INCIDENT, THAT I NEVER LOOKED FURTHER INTO THE INCIDENT AND THAT OF WHAT HER FATHER HAD TOLD DOZENS OF PEOPLE IN THE COMMUNITY.

EVEN WHILE STANDING RIGHT HERE IN THIS ADMIN BUILDING.

I NEVER LIED ABOUT A CHILD.

I NEVER PUT INFORMATION ABOUT A CHILD THAT DIDN'T STATE HERSELF IN A PUBLIC MEETING WITH PUBLIC MEETING. AND I EVEN CONCEALED HER IDENTITY TO THE BEST OF MY ABILITY IN MY POST.

[00:40:02]

I NEVER USED MY STATUS AS A BOARD MEMBER TO FIND OUT MORE, FIND OUT OR TO SPREAD INFORMATION THAT ISN'T ALREADY PUBLIC INFORMATION.

AND THEREFORE, OUR LEGAL COUNSEL SO FAR HAS FOUND THAT NO FURTHER VIOLATIONS HAVE BEEN COMMITTED. THE CHILD'S FATHER STATE THAT I LIED WHEN I CITING BULLYING AS THE OFFENSE, THE CHILD'S ARGUMENTS THAT HER ACTIONS WERE NOT BULLYING, BUT RATHER THAT OF FREE SPEECH.

HOWEVER, SHE ADMITS TO HUMILIATING THE OTHER STUDENT.

ACCORDING TO THE NATIONAL CENTER AGAINST BULLYING, IT STATES SOCIAL BULLYING IS A FORM OF BULLYING THAT IS DESIGNED TO HARM SOMEONE'S SOCIAL REPUTATION AND OR CAUSE HUMILIATION.

SO WHEN I USE THE WORDS BULLYING IN MY POST, IT WAS ONLY THAT UNDERSTANDING.

IF POSTING ON MY OWN PERSONAL FACEBOOK PAGE TO SIMPLY CLEAR UP WHY THIS MAN SEEMS TO HAVE MADE HIS ATTACKS PERSONAL TOWARD ME WAS SO WRONG, THEN I ACCEPT MY CENSORSHIP.

SADLY, MANY COMMUNITY MEMBERS HAVE TRIED TO STAND UP TO HIM AND SUPPORT THAT.

THOSE THAT HE TRIES TO TEAR DOWN.

HOWEVER, THE NARRATIVE ALWAYS STAYS ONE SIDED BECAUSE OF HIS THREATS TO SUE AND HARASSMENT TOWARDS ANYONE MAY TRY TO SPEAK OUT AGAINST HIM.

WHO WANTS TO LIVE IN A COMMUNITY WITH THAT KIND OF A PERSON? ONLY TO SEE YOUR ELECTED OFFICIALS, THE ONES THAT YOU ELECT TO HAVE YOUR BEST INTEREST AND PROTECT YOU. ALSO BOW DOWN TO HIM.

I WILL NOT BE THAT GUY.

I WAS ALSO ELECTED ON THE GROUNDS OF PROTECTING THE TAXPAYERS.

SO TAXPAYERS, I SAY TO YOU THIS WE ARE BOUND BY LAW TO FULFILL PUBLIC INFORMATION, REQUEST THAT ANYONE SUBMITS TO OUR DISTRICT IN THE PROCESS OF LOOKING UP INFORMATION, PULLING RECORDS, MAKING COPIES AND DOING THE RESEARCH.

THIS MAN HAS COST OUR DISTRICT AND YOUR SCHOOL DISTRICT AND EXORBITANT AMOUNT OF TAX DOLLARS REQUESTING ANY INFORMATION HE FEELS IS RELEVANT TO HIS NARRATIVE.

MY MOTHER BEING ONE EXAMPLE.

ANOTHER EXAMPLE IS WHEN HE REQUESTED SEVERAL BOARD MEMBERS, BUT NOT ALL OF OURS PHONE RECORDS OF ANY TIME HIS NAME HAD BEEN MENTIONED IN TEXT MESSAGES OR EMAILS.

SO IF THE COST TO STAND UP TO A BULLY IN THE COMMUNITY IS TO BE CENSURED, I GLADLY ACCEPT THAT CENSORSHIP. IT HAS BEEN MY ABSOLUTE HONOR TO SERVE ON THIS BOARD, NOT ONLY AS THE BOARD MEMBER, BUT AS THE BOARD PRESIDENT.

IT IS MY COMMITMENT TO YOU THAT I WILL CONTINUE TO TAKE A STAND AND PROTECT AGAINST BULLYING, HARASSMENT AND HUMILIATION OF MYSELF, MY FAMILY, THE SCHOOL BOARD AND THE TEACHERS AND THE STAFF OF GPISD.

YOU BELONG TO ME AS A MEMBER OF THIS BOARD.

SO IF THAT MEANS I NEED TO BE CENSURED, I WILL GLADLY ACCEPT THAT CENSORSHIP OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN.

I WOULD LIKE TO THANK EVERYONE THAT IS HERE WITH US THIS EVENING.

STAY STRONG, STAY AWAKE AND ALWAYS STAND UP FOR THOSE WHO CAN'T STAND ON THEIR OWN TOGETHER. WE ARE GPISD.

SO I HAVE A MOTION MADE BY MS. CARRILLO AND I HAVE A SECOND BY MR. PARRA. ALL IN FAVOR.

PLEASE SAY AYE. AYE.

ALL OPPOSE, SAME SIGN.

THAT MOTION WILL CARRY 7-0.

ALL RIGHT. IT IS 7:52 AND THIS BOARD IS ADJOURNED.
