Election this week – The ‘good guys’ lost the election

The three people, who replaced Newkirk, Williams and Witt because of a recall election two years ago in 2015, were re-elected this week for four-year terms.  One of the three ran unopposed.  The two republicans who were challenging these union-controlled board members, were parents who had only stepped into the race 2 or 3 months before the election.

I am getting to know Erica and Matt.  When they were making phone calls, I was also calling  to let people know that Erica Shields and Matt Van Giesen were the two republicans on the ballot that were challenging the people already on the school board.

Erica and Matt are very caring parents, who are willing to sacrifice far beyond the call of duty, in order to help their children, and to help all children in public schools.  They intend to continue working for better public school education.

November 7, 2017 –
Jefferson County school board election

Last Tuesday there was an election to decide who would fill 3 seats on the Jefferson County Colorado School Board.  It had been two years since the Unions, Democrats and PTA had made up lies to unseat  the 3 republicans on the 5-person school board.

The 3 people who won that recall election in 2015, ran again this November, to keep their seats — they succeeded.  The public lost – never knowing what the issues really were — never knowing what the current board and their backers have been doing to fundamentally change our school district.

2015 and 2017 are stolen elections.

It is my belief that those seats were stolen  illegally and unethically, 2 years ago.  See blogs 0002, 0038_, 0053, 0080, and the 2015 petition for recall, and ballot for the recall — notice that wording of petition and ballot are identical). Continue reading

“It’s Only OK When We Do It”
John J. Newkirk·Wednesday, May 10, 2017

My latest Opinion column for the Courier newspapers talks about hypocrisy in our public servants. Complete quotes (condensed here for brevity) can be found by clicking on the hyperlinks:

Selective outrage is all the rage these days. That is, what one group calls outrageous becomes perfectly acceptable behavior — so long as they’re the ones doing it.

Examples of selective outrage abound in places like Washington, D.C. and Berkeley, but we really don’t need to go that far. We can see it right in our own backyard.

Three years ago, Jeffco Public Schools found itself searching for a new leader after the superintendent resigned (and as Secretary of the Board of Education, I had a front-row seat). We hired a national search firm that specializes in public school leaders and, with their assistance, evaluated applicants until there were about half a dozen semifinalists, the identities of whom were contractually confidential. After interviewing each semifinalist, we rated them on a scoresheet provided by the executive search firm. Ultimately, the list of contenders was narrowed down to a single finalist — and that’s when the outrage began. Continue reading

Meeting March 27, 2017

An informative meeting took place at the Lewis Barn in Evergreen.  Julie Williams and Colorado State Senator Tim Neville were the guest speakers at the March meeting of the 285 Corridor Tea Party:

March 27th at 6:30 pm
The Barn at Evergreen Memorial Park
26624 N. Turkey Creek Road
Evergreen, CO 80439


Julie Williams spoke first, after several people who attended shared information with the group.  Below are summaries of topics Julie addressed.

Julie said there were parallels between her experiences Nov. 2013-2015
and the things happening in D.C.

Julie drew a parallel between what the unions did in Jefferson County to the three non-union supported board members — and what unions and the Left are doing against Trump and his administration.

She stressed the importance of not wasting time, and not underestimating the ability of the establishment (unions, mainstream media, academia, the Left, etc.) to work relentlessly and effectively to destroy the character and credibility of the new administration with the bombardment of lies, accusations, and subtle, or not-so-subtle, innuendoes.
