It’s said that perception is reality, bust just whose perception is it that’s right?
This month the Brevard School Board voted to add “security specialists” to staff as opposed to the “guardians” available through legislation passed after the Parkland shootings in February.
Representative Randy Fine is upset that the district did not implement the guardian plan. Board member Andy Ziegler opposes the plan at this time, saying there are questions that must be answered before his vote could be a yes.
The two recently went after each other in the press and social media. I have talked to both. Both believe their position is the only right one. Both believe the other has failed in some measure. Their self-perception is strong.
It’s also wrong. Elected officials publicly battling each other accomplish nothing. We elected them to work together.
It’s time to check the egos, boys and do the jobs you were elected to…by working together.
