Did the DEDOE, Delaware Attorney General, and DOE AG specialist really buy this terrible analysis on the legality of Pencader’s BOD?

From page 49 of the PCHS Formal Review Committee Final Report:

Subsequently, Quinn resigned effective April 12, 2012, and Minnehan resignedeffective June 1, 2012.

In addition, the terms of office of Quimby and Klapinsky expired on June 30, 2012.Thus, as of the July 2, 2012, Board meeting to elect directors, the seats held by Quimby and Klapinsky were up for election, and at least one additional director needed to be elected if the number of directors were to be brought up to the minimum of five specified in the Bylaws. The July 2, 2012, Board meeting was attended by Kennedy, Jones, and Quimby(WHOSE TERM JUST EXPIRED BY THE ADMISSION OF THE ATTORNEY NOT TWO SENTENCES EARLIER). Klapinski was the only current Board member not in attendance. Since Kennedy, Jones, and Quimby constituted 75% of the Board members (Quimby is magically a board member again? What in the heck is the lawyer trying to do or say here other than assuming no one else can read a paragraph for continuity), a quorum was present (in what universe other than the one the YCST lawyer lives in?). The directors presen tvoted unanimously at the meeting to re-elect Quimby and to elect Vincent Dimauro(“Dimauro”), Daphney Davis (“Davis”), Jay Anderson (“Anderson”), and Kimberly Clemmons(“Clemmons”). Quimby, Dimauro, Davis, Anderson, and Clemmons were therefore properly elected to the Board, and the Board as of July 2, 2012 consisted of them, Kennedy, and Jones

As I have been saying since July 2012, this board is illegal and their own lawyer just admitted it. I honestly don’t know which is more unbelievable: that the lawyer would be so brazen as to foist this on parents and taxpayers or that Governor Markell and Mr. Murphy would buy such a nonsensical argument?

  1. 1. Quinn did NOT resign in April, she resigned in mid-June at the close of the school year.

    2. Quimby’s term expired *(that means it ended) on June 30. He had completed a two year term.

    3. Klapinsky’s term expired (that means it ended) on June 30. He had completed a two year term.

    4. Minnehan resigned as of June 1. Her term expired on June 30. She finished Hamilton’s two year term.

    Therefore:

    5. As of July 1 Quimby and Klapinsky were NOT BOARD MEMBERS. PERIOD.

    6. If Quimby wanted another 2 year term he had to sit for election to that term.

    7. Quimby could not ELECT HIMSELF TO THAT TERM ON JULY 2. He had no standing as a board member to elect anybody.

    8. Klapinsky was absent from the July 2 meeting for a perfectly good reason: he was NOT a member of the Board.

    Why is this so damned difficult to understand? If Quimby could make himself a board member on July 2 then anybody can make themselves a board member anytime. It just doesn’t work that way.

    On July 2 there were exactly TWO BOARD MEMBERS: JUDI KENNEDY AND DR. JONES. PERIOD.

    I’ll check and see if my 15 year old gets this. The dog says he does.
