Whaley backs Donaldson
After serving on the Pasco School Board for the past 16 years, I have decided to retire. This has been a wonderful experience that I will truly cherish for the rest of my life. I have loved this job and our school system here in Pasco.
This is why I feel the need to endorse the strongest candidate for Superintendent of Pasco County Schools. I firmly believe there is a single candidate who has the graduate-level education, leadership skills and business experience necessary to lead our schools to success. That candidate is Steve Donaldson.
Whaley, a 16-year board veteran, long has bristled at incumbent Heather Fiorentino's management style, frequently complaining about the way decisions get made and the way the administration keeps the School Board in the dark. But she has kept quiet until now, even when we at the Gradebook questioned her recent $20 donation to Donaldson. That was the fee to get into a fundraiser to hear the man speak, she explained.
Apparently, she liked what she heard.
