Reinventing Vaillancourt

Newly elected school board member Cindy Vaillancourt is trying to cast herself as a non affiliated board member. In this story by Joe Burris in The Sun she notes that her narrow victory “came as a surprise, particularly since, unlike many of the candidates, she didn't receive any official endorsements.”

I suppose she doesn’t consider the support she received from current school board member Allen Dyer as an official endorsement. This is the guy who continues to divert precious resources from our school system by continually filing frivolous lawsuits.  Cindy Vaillancourt is a big fan of Mr. Dyer who has openly admitted that she “ has volunteered time and money to some of my board of education campaigns and i have volunteered time to cindy's campaign.”

Of course he openly admitted this after the election.

In a comment to this post she reiterated her support of Mr. Dyer.

“I was happy to see Mr. Dyer join the BOE, and I am proud to call him my friend.”

Her choice of friends is worrisome. In addition to his litigious nature, Allen Dyer has some pretty scary notions about authority. He believes the school system is better a judge of what is right for your children and that the government should have seized Doughoregan Manor from the Carroll family.
