Ms. Jeanne McQueeney – is the current President (elected) of your Eagle County Public School Board. (Click Here) Ms. McQueeney is also running today, to be your next Eagle County Commissioner – against her opponent Dick Mayne. The Commissioner seat they’re running for (Nov. 2014) is being vacated by (term limited) Commissioner Sara Fisher…
Under the direct support of (McQueeny’s employee/direct report) Dr. Jason Glass, the current Eagle County Public School Superintendent…is 100% endorsing a “Commissioner Candidate Debate – on your Public School Property. (Photo – McQueeney-Glass)
More Mischief? Anyone who has spoken to Ms. McQueeney on her campaign trail knows Jeanne is fond of telling Eagle County (voters & taxpayers) that the current EC School District Budget (she manages) is much bigger than the annual Eagle County Budget (she has to get elected, to manage).
The Political/Ethical Issue? To date (5OCT2014) Ms. McQueeney has NOT publically announced her (plan?) to resign as your elected School Board President – should she be elected – your next County Commissioner…
Why Not, Ms. McQueeney?
Even More Mischief, Ms. McQueeney?
Ms. McQueeney’s – current company (non-profit – Early Childhood Partners) depends on funding from Eagle County.
FACT: On November 7th, 2006 – Eagle County voters, voted “NO” to then (Arn Menconi’s) ballot question to have EC Taxpayers fund pre-school “kiddie-care” some called it taxpayer funded “day-care”.
The County Voters said “NO” that November 2006. 58% to 42%
FACT: Today in Eagle County – the company Ms. McQueeny runs (Early Childhood Partners) receives $104,464.00 from Eagle County – for the service of providing “early childhood experiences” for pre-School children in Eagle County. (Screen shot below from Eagle County’s “OpenBook” – online check register)
For the Record: the ECT has “no issue” with any private sector company (fundraising money) for the purpose of providing services to pre-school children.
What might happen to that (Early Childhood Partners) annual County Budget – should Ms. McQueeney – get elected?
Are Eagle County voters, comfortable with (any one person) controlling and managing the (2) largest Budgets in Eagle County? Our School Board – and Eagle County’s Budget?
ECT Readers – it is important that Eagle County Taxpayers and Voters have complete and factual information – before they vote. Please share (via email) this weeks issue of the ECT with other voters – you believe will be interested!
