"I appreciate the work you have done for the committee of the whole for safety and security. After careful consideration I am going to eliminate this committee immediately. Dr Davis provided a detailed plan for the implementation of metal detectors and other measures to improve safety and he released more information today on his plan for safety at sporting events. With a formal plan in front of us, I believe we will get more accomplished in a more efficient manner by bringing these initiatives to the formal board where there needs to be board action. At the time he presented administration’s plan there were no concerns brought up. I will add a safety item to an agenda so we can continue the work that has already been underway on this issue and to update the public as to where we are."
I believe that Manning cannot unilaterally, and outside of a board meeting, disband a Committee. It is the chicken's way out.
He is leaving the board. Why would he do this? Why would he try to muzzle the public and those on the board who believe that not enough is being done.
Email James Manning and let him know how you feel. firstname.lastname@example.org
Copy the rest of the board:
email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org,
And copy the S.C. State Inspector General.
It is preposterous that Manning would do this less than two months before he leaves the board.
Good riddance, James Manning!!!
