Despite the crappiness that appears to be the Lowell Sun’s new website (the sidebar ads are covering half the content, they have the worst, most pixelized photo of Gitschier imaginable…they must have pulled it off Google…and the layout of Santoro’s picture is whacked and the photo overly ginormous) we finally find out the results of the internal investigation of the claim by former Superintendent and current golden parachute retiree Mary Jo Santoro, that School Committee member Eric Gitschier “harassed” her by making too many motions asking for accountability.
That result? No there there. Move along folks.
Michael Long, an attorney for the school, recently provided Gitschier, a Lowell representative on the board, with the following statement about the internal investigation that could be shared with the public.
“The informal review concluded there was insufficient evidence of a violation of law to warrant referral for a formal investigation,” the statement said.
Also keep in mind:
The internal investigation into Santoro’s harassment allegation had been requested by board member Victor Olson, a Dracut representative.
Hopefully there will be some more accountability from the School Committee members over there. We do have a challenger for the four year seat, Bopha Peou, and I will be getting a whole lot more information to you about her soon. (I think you’ll be excited!)
PS this is the screenshot of the Sun’s article layout. In order to read it, I had to cut and paste it into a text editor. Gross, right? Do they not care at all over at The Museum??
Update: Someone pointed out to me, that the Firefox view of the main Sun Blogs web page is totally hosed. Firefox. You know, that browser that a whole ton of people actually use? Keep in mind, this screenshot was captured with the latest version of Firefox (v23.0):
They are using a javacript or jquery or some sort of fancypants clientside script to showcase the latest from each blog, with a sliding window, and it should look like this:
No outfit smaller than a three-person auto shop should not be at least checking their website with all the modern browsers, and if they are smart, some of the older ones as well. Just goes to show you how amateur these guys really are. I understand that Colorado dictates a lot in regards to the web presence, but seriously, you don’t go live with a web page if it looks like the previous screenshot on any one of the major browsers. *shakes head*
