I have been a citizen of Brookfield for 24 years and a member of the Brookfield Common Council for eight years, including two years as president. Many blogs in the past have contained false and distorting info about public affairs. I will provide truthful information and maintain an influence on city policy.
My statement that the School Board board offered 2011-12 contracts to teachers and nurses was clearly printed in the March 10,2011 issue of BrookfieldNow, page 4 under GOVERNMENT WATCH. The article states in part : "School Board Offers contracts to teachers, nurses". "Elmbrook School Board on Tuesdaty offered contracts to 466 full-time teachers and Nurses and 25 part-time teachers for the 2011-12 school year." I've read the article over and over trying to get a different meaning. The message is the same; teachers and nurses were offered a contract.! Period. The School District needs to do some serious damage control and owes owes the community an apology
