>Weitz's actions 'reckless'
>Prior to the levy election, Gerald Weitz called a school district
>administrator and invited her to attend a career fair in Pullman. The
>invitation was issued the day of the event. After hearing that she would be
>unable to clear her schedule upon short notice, Weitz determined she
>attached no importance to vocational education. A case of "telephone rage"
>followed. Reading from her notes regarding the exchange, the administrator
>quotes Weitz saying, "You'll never pass your levy. We are going to hold the

>Other individuals report conversations where Weitz discussed withholding
>financial support from the Moscow district to force agreement regarding his
>vocational/technical agenda. A majority of Moscow voters approved the levy.
>District administrators practiced due diligence by obtaining legal advice
>concerning levy elections, but Weitz is now using litigation to accomplish
>his goal of disrupting the District. It is a reckless action that will hurt
>this community, its schools, employees and their families, and children.
>Certainly Weitz has a record of support for children and education. He has
>served on the Moscow School District Board of Trustees. His support for the
>alternative school has been exemplary.
>Unfortunately, flares of impatience and temper occasionally negate his
>strengths. His record of service on the Moscow School Board includes
>petulant resignations when his ideas were not embraced.
>I would urge the following:
>- Drop the lawsuit.
>- Select a committee to complete an assessment of Moscow's
>vocational/technical programs relative to needs and interests of students.
>Prioritize and plan incremental steps to accomplish any changes agreed 
>- Legislators should work to clarify state law with respect to election
>issues Weitz has raised.
