Letter to the editor: Why didn’t they care?

After reading Tom Coyne’s invective (10/8) re Jeffco Schools’ education debacle, departed Supt. Glass’s failings, and the derelictions of his (bloated) management team, should we not ask:
Where was the elected R-1 School Board during all this?
Why have its members been silent?
Why did its members select a Superintendent with a record of failure?
Why, after witnessing Glass’s subsequent non-performance and failure here, did they prematurely vote to lock-in his incompetence for an additional 5 years?
In good conscience, should not the Board members responsible for Glass’s flawed selection, and the extension of his lucrative contract, submit their resignations immediately?
Barring that, should not all Jeffco residents vote to ‘throw the bums out’ come November of 2021 (or even sooner), and replace them with a new Board which has the captive students’ achievements foremost?
