Lots of true no sacred cows call Steve Bell 86 34 true 866-34-TRUTH or checking out online, Steve Noble show.com and now here's your host Steve Noble okay the summer is God's up in our all in our summer mode and people going on vacation going to the page on the mounds are going to going wherever and that we come through the primary season in the spring in May and then everybody got hits the summer doldrums and are around here in wake County, North Carolina. You got some schools are in some schools are out a lot of people going to shut down for the summer, but school is right around the corner getting back in with the traditional calendar right around the corner also of course something that we talk about regularly what you should be thinking about regularly is the upcoming elections in November you XD that's in November. It's fall, it's summertime yeah but August 1 is Monday and then August jumps into September September October before you know, at the election will be here.
And as we've all been getting woke in one way or another. The last couple years. One of the subjects that I hope you you've awaken to is what's going on in your local school so we allowed County in Virginia and everything the blue up there and then of course covert and the shutdowns in the mass and then also know these parents around the country happen to be able to peek in what's going on with her kids education and where you think it's the high school and middle school of the elementary school of your youth, it doesn't and the days have change the times of James control is firmly in the hands of the left and so I hope now you're becoming more involved or least aware of what's going on in your school board here in wake County, one of the largest school board systems in the country are rallying area. I we got big races coming up.
It's been controlled by liberal forces for a while but we have a lot of good conservative candidates and a lot of people that just got woke up been involved including Becky Lou Hobbs is in the studio with me today.
She's been involved as a parent. She and her husband and their kids in the wake County school system, but then covert comes along and start finding out more in the next thing you know, as you said a few minutes ago Becky, you are expecting to be on this side of the glass usually would be in the controller with your husband helping out a church right on.
I'm used to being in the background so I want to spend some time sharing how you went from the background to being a candidate. She's running for district for here in wake County public school system very, very, very important Becky for the number four wake.com is a website Becky for wake doc on district for which is like Eastern Raleigh and parts of night deal if you're in the area you know where that is again a reminder to challenge all of you that are outside of my backyard. You have schools in your neck of the woods. You have a school board in your neck of the woods. You should be involved.
You should be engaged in the least of which should be applying for in voting for these candidates coming up for you know who's there who's in control, but Becky you you obviously switch sides going from that side of the glass of the side of the glass that can all start for you because you can hear you graduated what Eric carry high school I graduated from Kerry high school. I hate to admit before carry high school had air conditioning, so my dad retired from the military moved us here so I finished out my school career, in the wake County Public school system. It's actually soon after they the systems merge. It used to be. The Raleigh city schools in the wake school system merged to the wake County Public school system. Yeah so massive how many schools do we have now we County hundred 92 leave if our memory serves. We have two new schools opening for the new school year. You bring us up to 194 massive I have no idea how many schools there were. Back when I was just him, but you note that the quality of the education is very different than what is happening then kids are getting right you know there there are things that I can distinctly remember at different age levels that my kids know nothing about you and it's just shocking that like you don't know this about the reactionary of Larry Fahey don't know this amendment to the Constitution and it's just very shocking to me that they're omitting this information, which I would think is very basic information, but you know that's the purpose of the school system is to provide a basic education.
That's what it says in our laws. It says in our Constitution state constitution and the school systems are doing yeah I think for a lot of us that are over the age of 40 and one pair another we look back on our high school. I was explaining that to you on the before we went live that I would tell you. Try school in the suburbs of Chicago.
I have no recollection election of any kind of wacky stuff.
There certainly was anything wacky in terms of like gender ideology that had come out of the closet yet and sexuality and all that kind of stuff we had sex ed but it was like that class but nobody asked to go to its comfortable yada yada there wasn't. Do I have no memories of any kind. A discernible wacky liberal agenda and so I think I think it's easy for us to assume things are still fine because we have some good teachers here and there but there's a whole system behind the teacher right and I think that's where we started to wake up to that last year will what's a very different right now than it was when you and I were in school is back when you and I were in school, there was the teachers there is a principal in the very little administration and background, whereas now the school system. There are there's 80 positions in the wake County Public school system. Our administrative positions are over hundred thousand dollars a year each. Each over some of them say in this includes a superintendent and she's 312 for Michelle. So that's an entire gambit so you have this entire background of people that are involved in the day-to-day education of the kids and really did.
They don't have a stake in how well the children perform read what they're being supposed to be provided for a stake in that six-figure income right exactly. And so we don't necessarily just have a swamp problem in DC. The bureaucracy is a problem wherever it exists, it really it people not realize at your local educations that that really touched your life much more than what's going on in DC yeah yeah yes there's a ton of things that need to be fixed there, but it's what is going on here and in our cities and our counties in the state that is going to affect us more, true of what happened to you and your family when covert cable well, like I just about everybody. The world stopped you ended up staying home and we kinda had a two week vacation. Yeah, that was nice and then we got bored and I work for an agriculture based company. So we quickly went back at it. Yes, that never never slow down and so but me and my husband is an IT work and he's been remote and his company, switched formats of remote works fine so that you know but so he was able to handle a lot of the three ring circus that you school that first year that was good. It was a nightmare having yeah he was working at one desk. My daughter was at the desk behind him, in elementary school in second grade, trying to figure out how to turn the computer on and having meltdowns and she couldn't figure out how to get on zoom in you. He's wasn't an uncommon experiment that was the common accident right they try to switch anything over and nothing will talk about this we come back on the break is what you discovered. Once your kids school comes into your house is not homeschooling is not homeschool when the wake County Public school system comes into your house and you get exposed to what's going on there. Will talk about that will get into the issues that back is going be running on Becky for weeks.com is a website will be right back about boys and girls, this is Steve Noble to Steve Noble show Chris timing on the so I like to do that. Everyone focused on who's on your school board even though you know who the leader, the school board is do you know the superintendent is is running the school you know is running your kids school will feed my kids are in school and so what if you call yourself a Christian to love your neighbor as yourself and the other kids in the school that school system and just because your kids aren't there. Or maybe you don't even have kids again.
If you got yourself a Christian that becomes irrelevant because you supposed to love your neighbor as yourself, especially in the educational environment were in today in the United States of America. And yes, right here in good old North Carolina are down there in South Carolina. January happened to be listening. It isn't exactly the way it was when we were young wings and so you have to be engaged yet pay attention because there are children in their being led astray a lot of different ways, not the least of which is just not getting a good basic education. They don't even know basic civics, which is why I teach that US history is been hijacked all kinds of subjects. Yes, there are good teachers here and there in an I don't think in some cases, if you've ever watched lids of tick-tock. You know there's some teachers out there that are flat out crazy and should be teaching should really be around children. But there's all system behind them. There's a school board. This school system. There's the school union.
There's the North Carolina Association of educators in NCAA run by two basic marks, Marxists and progressives so the whole system behind all that. So don't just because you like your one teacher.
Don't assume everything's fine, because it's not.
That's what that Becky Lou Hobbs is figured out over her years of being a mom and I having kids in the school system and she's running for district 4 in the wake County school board races this fall Becky for wake.com that's the number for Becky for wake.com again. Becky, thanks for being. It's great. Thank you so much, so I would call it happening, and then all sense chaos at home and I think just about every family dealt with that with kids coming home. We don't know how to learn online for me as a homeschool family that was more common for us but not appear in the public school system but then also I think one of the things that happen.
I wanted asked this about your experiences started to actually see more about what's going on in the classroom look at information is coming to your children right so I have three children and two were in middle school. One was in elementary school question. I just spoke about elementary's got that the middle schoolers. That's where things kind of really went chaotic you had seven teachers, each was seven way different ways to how to do things online and then of course teachers would change at the end of each quarter you know if you they change so-called elective so it was really hard to keep up physically would just what are they doing to you because you know this teacher you had to go through all this pathway to get to what's going on with lesson plan. This teacher kept it over here. It was it was it was a nightmare but with some of the history that my kids are being taught. It was it was skewed yeah and that was that was like the first cute clue and like I have world history, US history was. It was US history and I had inklings that things are all up and up while you but long before because of it, but I didn't have any proof and I believe the best in people and you the teachers at my kids. It had are great but the teachers don't necessarily have to control over what the curriculum is that they teach a lot of that is, you know. Yes, there's a state-level guidelines but that's adopted by the school board, school boards, ultimately responsible for that and one of the things it was just how they presented the settlers migrating west and they called them white invaders.
Really, that's what they call yeah and when my kids classes and I'm just white invaders right and it's it's hard to get, you know anybody who has a middle school or that that 1213 1415 trying get them to talk about anything, let alone just to fix is to what's going in class.
You know you're not going to get that so it was it was an eye-opener. I you know really wasn't expecting it to be quite that bad, but a lot of it was also what they were omitting you. We talked about it a little bit off-line that if they think there they don't know what the Constitution is. I haven't read the Constitution. They don't know some of the basic amendments might third-grader still doesn't know what the Revolutionary war is on having to talk to her about it.
She's in third grade I was in third grade. Not only did I know what the Revolutionary war, I'd probably been to 1/2 dozen battlegrounds across across the country so it's it's not just what they are teaching.
It's what they are not teaching. They're not teaching the basics of what our country's foundation is so good that coming face-to-face with that kind of radicalism and I don't have a problem using the words that's what it is agenda driven. It's a totally different worldview than ours, and over time with kids going through the system from kindergarten to 12th grade are marinating in that they don't have the wisdom or the discernment to know what's coming and parents are ignorant they don't know it or not using the word in an ugly way up. That's what's happening and that's shifting their worldview and their belief system right underneath their feet.
It's changing their operating system are putting in the operating system of the progress we don't really know it because it's incremental right and part of this is one of my my issues with the school board in the budget that they have passed that $5 million for textbooks and I asked him what textbooks my children have been the school system since 2012 and I have not seen one textbook well.
In fact, one of my friends is running.
They will bring anything home they'll never bring us all what ritual it's all really virtual. Everything's a worksheet and if they're spending $5 million on those little math workbooks. We need a new contract associate or because they're not spending money was because yeah that's that's really a joke, but they found out textbooks and there's there's no cause for that in their brand-new and it's hard for parents to know where what their kids are learning and where they are without having a textbook or something refer to and I'm not talking about objecting to what they're learning. I'm learning to know what their learning because then I can at the dining room table asked them a constructive question. See you guys read about turtles today. At least you can interact and I can't do that.
I never have been able to. It's been really tough. Once again back to the teens who don't like to write, say, any home and dump all the snow I know it's it's hard to to get those conversations going. As a parent and it's it's been horrible trying to figure figure out where they are and how to help them and especially mice might my kids elementary school when my boys are probably like fourth or fifth grade.
They made a big deal about no more homework now really don't know if going just right to bed now.
I really know no idea a lot about which one of you should talk about is is board transparency, parental rights and quality education was there.
One thing Becky were talking about you hop she's running for district for her and wake County school board races this fall Becky for wake.com that's the number four was there one moment, is there something that crystallize that you're like okay I'm done just deal with this at home. I'm done sending emails on well that was a little little slow start there.
It first got me to the school board meetings. You key. Sutton was responding in attempt to my okay so I show up to the school board and first time I went I got.
I was one of the golden ticket speak yet because they could've the speaker is is that that's a completely different topic, there, and I would address the board and you just get this stone yeah the wall saying no response, they don't. The next meeting respond to any of the speakers they just use it use that time to pat themselves on the back about what big accomplishments the maiden.
Oh, I saw you over here at the show or whatever and not really give any kind of you appeared before the wake County school board is it have to. Maybe it doesn't a dozen or more times how many questions a basket zilch. not no interaction whatsoever.
they just sit there listen to you why knee pain in the rear.
mom, which makes it look good because at least there" listening right but no interaction, no accountability done. you leave nothing changes right which is lighter which is why i'm writing becky for wake.com talking to becky lou havel dive into these four main issues and how we can all support the steve noble show the steve miller show.com you can also join us on facebook or youtube noble page their podcast.
by the way, if you out with most of us are used to know, it's like the old burger king becky lou probably suspected up the pickle told a lot of special orders don't upset us all we ask that you start your way. now we get anything we want whenever we want wherever we so live radio live television. most of us like i don't care what others get the podcast or watch the video go to youtube later so that you there are euros to do that you don't have to be here from 4 to 5 pm monday through friday. the show is out there different kinds of ways you will watch it for him. you can that's up to you but available in all the regular podcasting will talking to becky lou hobbs today was late running for the wake county school board district for which is the eastern part of raleigh and parts of my deal where are the love of our lives from a gastro perspective prime barbecue is out there and that's where i think we met a primary metaphor about fred voncannon and then i believe i talked about the main issues that you're running on these very important. by the way, a becky graduated carry high school. she's been in the system for a long time. she is three kids at a bend in the public school system so she's a concerned parent that's gone from being a concerned parent to running for office and i asked you that question as we were running out of time is like and what got you to the point you said you were going to school board there cold face.
you know there's no interaction there's there's no response.
there's no real accountability at all and see my right and so that was that the thing the porch over the line, combined with what you were saying last night and for the past believe it's the reelection. nobody had run against sutton yeah no chow.
i started asking around going please if somebody got a run i'll be your biggest supporter. i'll figure out how i can and do the reply was always like you'd be a great candidate like a full-time job, three kids and husband ray and don't forget the two cats and SO going after around that and and honestly praying over it and just say people were delivering words to me that was confirming things in my own prayer time that that that that coincided and i just i knew that that's the way i had to go whether i wanted to learn on and so i started trying to get better at speaking and figuring out really you know how to do yes and you try get into okay what's wrong what are we can focus on you because there's a lot wrong.
we can't fix everything and this really is. i mean, god made you a certain way right and so you mentioned this before going on there. the vicki mentioned warren there in a commercial breaker kind of a fixer and so you see the chaos and you find a way through it if if our school system at the wake county school board itself in the school system itself isn't involved in chaos. i don't know what it so we need fixers and it helps to have a fixer that has the right worldview and has kids in the you had kids in the system so you're invested in you seen it yourself you first hand knowledge, and i'm pretty sure you have no interest in being a part of the bureaucracy so when you make the decision to run and when the house the house that then in terms of just support and people encouraging you to come alongside of you what that well. it was really scary at first because you have a great career.
i love my job and i love our work and i didn't want to give it up.
that was really my one of my biggest fears. so when i went to talk to my employer about it. she was very supportive and psyche. go for it will work around your schedule is a tremendous blessing because you with with my job.
you know, never in a million years that i think that i was going to be able to work with people that work in canada and in europe and in korea from all over the world. it was really is cool to be able to to work with all these different people from like that. very rewarding to get very rewarding and unit wasn't on my original life plan if mom my life plant.
my life is turned out very different from what i plan i've got a good sense of humor is definitely yes your becky left at my plan. i will not overhear this. so that's why you know it was a little. it was a progress. it wasn't a alderson yes i'm running it was a slow progression and then making sure that my you know i'm i have a husband and three kids and i had to talk to my house. they say are you and are you okay with me doing this and he's like yes and yet he is not the kind of person that you're going to come here to seek his yeah you know he is on the theatrical business you will not see him. he did very well. but you know he is back there supporting me, you, mike. my kids are supporting me and and what i'm doing and on the family. it's been great, that's awesome. and the thing that i want everybody to realize is when people like becky step up to the plate what's at stake here because you see you have your own three children that up in the system but is all your neighbors, children, and this is that this is a subject and a reality that is encompasses the 5% of our students in wake county go to the public suggesting that's right so as the children go, so will go the country so these kids. i am now yeah and in 15 years they're going to be the ones that are going to be our leaders are politicians are our attorneys are doctors, professionals, tradesmen, what they're teaching is real, you know that's right, you can almost think of it in a selfish way is like i want these people to be nice when i'm older and things that i could but i will be critical thinkers.
yeah, i wanted to know the basics of the countries existence is operation, its history and be be able to contribute to citizens. i don't want to indoctrinate it, which is what i want taught to teach them how to think right thinking skills, not what the thing right exactly and and i can just see for my kids that they don't have the critical thinking seals that i think they should have arrived at their age so you did talk a bit about before. just because of things that were happening. the covert protocols at the school. force my kids in that school year out a lot. i ended up for this past school year. two of my three children out of the school system. and yes, now i know if there's a difference between homeschooling and setting them in front of the computer to watch stuff.
it's a very different different journey in the thing about homeschooling and this is when you're 4.4 main points quality education, parental rights, fiscal responsibility and board transparency quality education when you're doing a homeschooling thing whether you do it for couple years for years like we did you go you go pick the quality education. you have options you have choices.
you go shopping right but when you're in public school system.
you don't shop right it's one store and one product that's talk about that the quality education will demand what the school is supposed to deliver a quality education. that's what's in our constitution. that's what's in our law and it's not happening.
if you look at the scores. this is more than just cobit when you look at the third grade reading scores which is the foundation for our child's education. even 10 years ago.
over 1/3 of the kids were not proficient in third grade reading. so from birth to third grade kids are learning to read and from third grade on their reading so they can learn and if they can't read, they can't progress and there is no foundation. there's no foundation and and that's what the public school you that that through the 12th grade is supposed to provide them that good quality solid educational foundation so they can choose to go to college or they can choose to go to a trade school or they can choose just to go start a business. whatever whatever they want and it's not happening yet at such a big deal and then instead of a quality education. they have a worldview indoctrination right at the college and and their passing children through so the wake county bragg said it's more than 90% graduation rate. why question that's even actual graduation rate.
you know, one of the things once again with my personal experience my children for some my kids failed english and their pass to the next grade with note no extra support and then their past same thing happen the next year and it just kept compounding so you know right right now my oldest child really has is more of 1/8 grade reading english level does not not the 10th grade that he should be at so if they're doing this to my child right there doing this to other girl and that's that one up when you look at the policies of the wake county school system.
it's up to the principal as to what makes a child get the child to advance to the next grade. we have over hundred 90 schools with 190 principles, which means you have hundred 90 opinions about how to do that a little bit inconsistent, the need to have a little more guidelines and that you and and again setting our children of the fit right. it it it it is setting them up to fail, but it keeps them in their six-figure job right. although there are exactly so that obviously a massive problem and then parental rights which you talked about and that was one of the linchpins what's got you here right is you go to the school board meetings, but like what parental rights do we need what we need to be able to be involved. i had difficulty even before coded being involved in my kids education just getting there had to pre-schedule things i never would have the freedom just to say hey i got off today so i'm gonna go in and see how i can help you get there. there is none of that going on. i would always have to schedule it schedule in advance then asked as cook bid came of course, parents you know it's coded, you can't come i can't find out that now i can't volunteer but in cae members were allowed to vote for my child's school and mike waited a minute me the parent of ivan parent is not allowed there, but some stranger who pays this union fear, whatever they call it is allowed to help my child this that this doesn't fly no and and just even how the buildings are are kept and i know i might my exposure is just with the schools of my kids have gone to, but how to get in the schools it's it's like entering a prison and i know we need secure sure is very important, but you know i still even at the end of the school year to get my check my child out of school, you know, you had to ring the doorbell. show your id and they come out, you never actually know the office that was the hitting the hello blessing of cobit that all of a sudden the school community are high.
so i started being exposed like you were in olsen finding out about the people heading west back in the 1800s were white invaders. some of them were dirtbags.
that's provable that a lot of the never never get to go. you just remarkable. we got a lot more to talk to about what the becky labs will be right back. you look back at steve noble to steve noble show here today with becky to hobbes is running for the week will board district for her website is becky for wake.com becky for that's the number four wake.com and you can find out about her background, work experience, and then she's had three children that been in the school system she's been involved ghost of school board meetings and then enough was enough and they got will do that. becky, by the way, are all like hey you should run, run somebody else and run and then we look for somebody else.
and sooner or later. sometimes the lord just puts his finger on your head and you realize okay this is something i'm supposed to do in this matter. being a faithful person and leave the results up to him.
i mean it was for me personally it was a sunday in march 2004 after a series at our church for a while and then a revival service which i've never been around and then that sunday. do you feel the lord's moving you in some direction if you do write it down on the response card. be careful of those things and put on the altar right and so i literally wrote down to be more outspoken for god's truth in the public arena and we were homeschoolers i was running house pickup right and i had been teaching adult sunday school or church, but that was it and then literally three weeks later, i led a group mean a buddy led a group of about three or 50 people in the raleigh city council chambers does that was april 2004 called action was born november 2007 on the radio and henry are all these years later because i just said okay. i suppose i should do something about the things i complained about all the time never knowing, never thinking that it would actually change my life didn't know he was preparing you for the right but here i am here you are, and thank you and thank god for you that you're willing to do this now supportive husband and supportive kids. and now you've got growing support around the community appraisal board for that is god called you to. it what happens in the end that's a deal that's up to him that i just know i'm i'm i'm doing what he wants me to do. however that being said, as voters in a free republic. we all have a responsibility and and i'll tell people and at i don't know many pastors that are willing to say this, i'm medically not willing to say on the air. i actually think it's a sin and not vote because letting you live in a country like america when all the laws like were talking about the day, all the things that happen with the wake county school board which affects all these children all over the county because we have in the school system about just shy of 160,000 in the public school said okay hundred 60,000 kids in wake county public schools, and those are hundred 60,000 your neighbors so do not care what's happening to them is a violation of labor law, which is a violation of god love both of which are sent like that's not a common format that's really simple and so that's whence it so don't just say i will gotta take care of it.
yes, god will take care of it utilizes people like me and becky you so make sure you're registered and make sure you get out and vote and do your homework and make sure to vote for people that go in there and serve our children in your neighbor's children well and that's what this thank you becky for doing it so easy nowadays to find out about the candidates is and how you can go online and find out a sample ballot you can from their figure out what everybody's website sr if you don't even actually trying to find a candidate event. at least you can go to their website only say parental rights that that's just it just give me easy access because you are saying is like a rabbit trail just by knowing your learning right yet it's it's it's to be involved in it might my children are still my children together.
not a word of the state so i am part of the education process of my child. i'm not to be excluded and i don't think any parent should be, etc. it hey listen, if you're a hard-core liberal atheist should have as much access to what's going on in the classroom as we do exactly exactly. so it they need to be involved out and i will be the first one out there to protect their rights to be involved, but to exclude me because you don't like how i believe my faith is in that's not that's not right. so when we look at the overall wake county school school system and all of its problems and its indoctrination and all the other stuff in the bureaucracy and all that mess doesn't really all come down to the school board the school board is one that creates the policies. the school board is the one that directs the budget and how it's going to be spent and who it's going to be spent on so yes, it really does come to the school board the school board really is not accountable to anyone.
as we found out with what happened when they tried to point somebody to the district for position there, reside in the district did not reside in the district. he actually is address was actually in a district further north but then after things came to light. found out that he wasn't even residing in the county, let alone shot late him, so it was it was a mess. the board never acknowledged that they messed up badly because it's really not hard to run a background check on anybody these days.
i mean it's part of when you hire somebody is to run a background check so that was gross negligence on the part of the board that they didn't do that. they never apologized and never publicly acknowledged it there there there was a formal complaint done and it was much ignored, but the this the north carolina catherine truitt. she didn't have the authority to do and that's part of the little bit of a problem is the school board has no accountability to anybody other than the voters right so that is why it is so important to vote in one of the things it can be different is there some good interchanging to staggered terms of terms are to be coming for years so this this election cycle. all of the seats are up for election summer to your seats summer for your seats incredible opportunity right yet so that the district 4 is a to your seat, but there are others or for years for your seat so they're not going to be writing the 2024 election there and stay on the board. but then there's can be a certain psycho. this is a great opportunity that we've been handed right to literally we have to take control the school exactly no other way to put it on the dance around right now it it's even if it was a liberal minded. it's just they're not taking into account what parents right and parents want to be involved in a child. if you don't agree with their party line. you are to be excluded are out then and i don't agree with that. i think disagreement is a good thing i did lose a lot of things to like countries built.
it is so just excluding somebody because you disagree with their point of view is extremely selfish.
so when you say that is one year for a big points on your website becky for wake.com for transparency. what all is involved in that unpack four-minute. i'll try will go back against yeah how to phrase this nicely distilled the truth and it's nice okay they do so much and it's behind i'll say behind closed doors. yes, they appear public that they they have everything is preset when you watch the meanings there's no disagreement there also uniform and hot. there's only one way there will there's two ways that could happen. they've had meetings ahead of time in private. people don't know what's going on have discussed the matters and artie come to their conclusions or we have eight idiots on the board and only one person that thinks that and they all follow that one person right because of the those are the two options, aic yeah and so like you.
you mentioned you prepared for the board over 12 times and ask him questions that ask you an answer that is zero right right so they just go through the motions. i really think they go through when i listen. they go through the motions and one of the things he said and never once made an appearance on any of my children school ever.
and, of course, with me speaking from the board. the board knows exactly where my children go to school so when they did finally appoint the news the new person for our area not going to give her publicity by saying her name yes, but what schools did she go visit my children school.
she made a really big deal about it to you yet what you do but i'm like really that's so transparent.
but there there making all these decisions behind closed doors and then when you try. we thrived in so many information requests and they are so resistant to really giving you the information that you want. well, i'm checking on trying to okay we have almost $50 million attributed to come to two contracts and i asked the for that information and they're not providing it and that's all responsible in the board yes yes there's a person that's a sign that but that is the response of the board to make sure that information private corporation. they were right and and will that was another thing when they said over like a fortune 500 company is a fortune 500 go that that was what you think. sutton said on his wet nose way out the door is like i don't work for fortune 500 company, but i do work for a corporation and you don't even qualify for low in total say he did so well that it was a good healthy board look like with respect to transparency and interaction on a board that is transparent will be one that actually meets and talks with its constituents, not with it. select group you yet when i went i am elected, i want to be able to meet regularly with members of district for a townhome you talk right and not just a board advisory committee and that you know yes i can sit and watch, but i really can't participate. i want to talk to people that not only live in that district, but their kids go to school in the district because it is something that voters do struggle with is what i live over here but my kids go to school in your great great right i can't put for you and as i am. i'm sorry.
no, that's not how it works, that that is just doesn't work that way. so it's really important to listen to everybody and that is important because i'm doing listen everybody sure is yes. i'm gonna go by my beliefs and in my in my faith but i want to hear what everybody is learning and and no i'm not gonna go against anything in my foundational values, but if there's enough people there like no we want this. we want this to listen to my job as a representative to represent the 80,000+ voters in my in my desk and allow for the conversation to have. it's going to be uncomfortable and because the board that their lives are not doing right now is everybody's doing that night. they try and shut you down, you they call they called us vocal groups think that all these old i would say that you're basically a domestic terrorist proud domestic terrorist. we help you. you can help by going to my website and filling out there's multiple ways there's donation.
