Logistics for tonight are as follows: Protesters will meet at Catasauqua park at 6:30 PM. From there we will walk as a group to the Innovative Arts Academy building. I’ve had a lot of calls and emails from people interested in attending. I estimate maybe 30 people so far. I have around 20 signs made so please bring your own if possible.
The purpose of tonight’s protest is to make people aware of Kelly Bauer and the role she played in the mailer saga. For starters, I do not know how such an under-qualified woman with a weak formal education and no experience in education could have been handed a place on the board. Perhaps the rumors about her having an affair with Honest Abe are true and this was payback. In any case, she used her position to ask ‘favors’ of people in Whitehall. The favors included handling the mailers. I was one of the idiots dumb enough to do this ‘favor’ for her. Keep in mind that I was under the impression that the mailers were being sent out with the school’s approval. Bauer even gave money for the printing and claimed the money came from the school. Since the mailer scandal broke, a lot of people have suffered. Teachers left the school, as did the CEO. Loraine Petrillo’s involvement with the $100k loan was nothing compared to the role Bauer played, BTW.
So tonight we will show up and voice our displeasure with Innovative Arts Academy, Kelly Bauer and the entire situation. I will be bringing along a reporter and photographer from LehighValleyLive.com too. Se will conduct an interview, ask questions and bring along a photographer to take photographs.
Looking forward to seeing everyone tonight!
