While serving on the Brown Deer School Board, Leslie Galloway Sherard sent a highly offensive email to Superintendent Deb Kerr (Nov. 12, 2010) attempting to take away the First Amendment rights of another Brown Deer resident.
The target of Ms. Galloway was former School Board member Mike Christopolus who served several terms on the School Board with honor and distinction. Mike loves to write positive booster athletic/sports letters to the local paper along with carefully researched letters about district performance on reading, writing and science courses.
In her email to Dr. Kerr, Galloway Sherard closed with: "We owe it to our children and our community to respond and identify a strategy to get these kind of letters restrained."
Ms. Galloway does not respect diversity of opinion in Brown Deer, the First Amendment nor the United States Constitution.
In my view, Ms. Galloway should not serve as an elected official. A robust and active debate on all education, test scores and policy direction is vital to a living democracy and our elected officials.
Pretending that "everything is fine" does not work to solve real issues. We should question our School Board candidates.
