East Penn School Board’s Bully Ballard Strikes Again

Share

But strikes out on his censure vote against EPSD Board Member Ms. Lynn Donches

Monday night’s East Penn School Board meeting presented an unusual and serious censure motion against school board member Ms. Lynn Donches. The initiator of this motion was another sitting board member, Mr. Charles Ballard and the reason for this censure appeared to be Mr. Ballard wanted to prevent Ms. Donches from asking for budget information.

Ms. Donches has been voting nay to the bill list because of this lack of detailed budgetary information and that appears to have pushed Mr. Ballard to the point of his vindictive censure motion against her.

It was a fitting start to the meeting when the children from Willow Lane Elementary school sang a

EAST PENN’S ABUSIVE CHARLES BALLARD GETS SLAMMED BY THE PUBLIC!

Share

At Monday evenings East Penn School Board meeting, a meeting where School Board Director Charles Ballard placed a motion to censure fellow School Board Director Lynn Donches, the East Penn public finally had its say. With a packed house in support of Ms. Donches, citizen after citizen went to the podium to support Lynn Donches and inform the School Board and Ballard just what they thought of the abuse that Lynn Donches has endured.

Over the last three and a- half years, the East Penn School Board and Administration has put up artificial road blocks to the requests of Ms. Donches for details of the Budget line-items and expenses entailed. But Lynn Donches holds dear her responsibility to the taxpayers and students of East Penn

East Penn School Board to Censure Board Member; Is it a Political Stunt?

Share

A resolution for the Censure of East Penn School Board (EPSB) director Lynn Donches was placed on the agenda of the Monday June 8th meeting at the request of EPSB director Charles Ballard. According to the agenda, Mr. Ballard wants Ms. Donches censured “for waste of District resources and material misstatements of fact to the public and this board”. It appears that Mr. Ballard considers it a waste of district resources when an elected school board director asks questions of the administration dealing with financial items to be voted upon. Mr. Ballard is currently running for reelection to the school board, leaving some wondering if this may be a politically motivated stunt.

Mr. Ballard appears to be running for

The Bait-and-Switch Behind Economic Populism

Share

The following article written by Nicolás Cachanosky is an excellent summary of the paper “Macroeconomic Populism” written by Rudiger Dornbusch and Sebastián Edwards. Not only do the four stages of populism identified by Dornbusch and Edwards apply at a national level, they also seem to apply on a local level.

These four stages can been seen in our local governments including Emmaus, Lower Macungie Twp., East Penn School District, and even Lehigh County. When fiscally responsible majorities have been in control, they have instituted policies that allowed these local levels of government to become financially sound with either no debt or extremely low amounts of debt while supplying the excellent services the public demands. By focusing on providing required services at cost competitive rates, funding

Lehigh County Conservatives Score Some Big Wins in Primary Election

Share

Lehigh County conservatives scored some big wins in Tuesday’s primary election as many conservative favorites advanced to the general election.

Let’s begin by looking at the Lehigh County Commissioners race, moderate Republican Dean Browning was once again rejected by Republican voters at the polls. Many stated it was due to the 16% tax hike levied on county residents during his tenure as Chairman of the Lehigh County Commissioners. Additionally, some were turned off by what they viewed as a negative campaign run by Mr. Browning. They said Mr. Browning’s mailers appeared to distort the truth or in their opinion contained lies. Judging by the results of the election, it looks as if those tactics didn’t work for Mr. Browning to the

Can School Board’s do Anything About Common Core?

Share

The short answer is a robust YES! This question gets centered on the East Penn School Board race. In the May Primary, conservative candidates Carol Allen and Chris Donatelli made a statement in their campaign literature that they wanted to oppose Common core and return to local control. The Teacher’s Union backed slate and their political operatives immediately jumped on this and continue to this day. The union operatives claim that Allen and Donatelli are naïve in that school board’s must follow the mandates of the state and federal governments. While it is true that Pennsylvania has adopted Common Core and renamed it Pennsylvania Core Standards, there are many ways to blunt the negative impacts of this program and its effects on our

To Whom It May Concern:

It is my pleasure to endorse Carol Allen and Chris Donatelli in the race for the East Penn School Board to be held on Primary Election Day – May 19, 2015.
