Thanks to those that attended this event for coverage.
Brett Reese took to the podium at Farr Library on Saturday, to make a public statement and answer questions swirling around the community regarding his reputation, agenda and behavior at Weld District 6 School Board meetings. The crowd was mixed, with supporters mingling with skeptics. Reese accepted questions from all attendees.
The wives of school board members Stack and Broderius attended the forum, outfitted with video cameras, as well as a photographer/reporter from the Lib Trib. If they listened, they got an ear-full of complaint about District 6. One woman, a teacher in the district, corroborated Reeses' statements to the letter with a scathing rebuke of the current majority on the board. Another attendee later disclosed a list of teachers and District 6 employees that supported Reese, but were afraid to reveal their names for fear of reprisal. All in all, the event was positive, informal and illustrated the chasm between the good-old-boys network and those that really want to move Greeley forward.
Reese urged the crowd to attend school board meetings and judge the behaviors and accusations for themselves. While few minds were probably changed, the meeting was held in an open and transparent environment. Check with members Stack and Broderius if you wish to review the video tape. They made sure they had copies for themelves.
