Mike Nieto's column, "Not all games are played on the field or court," where he expressed his concerns about Crete/Monee District 201-U's School Board, was right on target.

I am a new member of the 201-U School Board, and I want to make it perfectly clear that I am speaking for myself as a citizen and not as the voice of 201-U. That is for School Board President Nakia Hall or Superintendent John Rodgers to do. The comments I make are mine and mine alone.

The high school principal's diverse team, which originally interviewed applicants according to established procedures and recommended Greg Schneider, will now be out of the process replaced by the superintendent and human resources assistant superintendent.

This change was at the urging of the School Board leadership. You can draw your own conclusions as to why the procedure was changed.

The community has a right to be upset with this School Board and to demand the complete truth about everything we do and the cessation of personal agendas, period.
