TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! HICKMAN MILLS SCHOOL BOARD MEMBERS DEMAND DAN OSMAN STEP DOWN AMID CONTROVERSIAL RESIDENCY DEBATE!!!
Earlier in the week our AWESOME blog community reported a crisis in a Kansas City area school district over the topic of residency and representation.
Locals from throughout the Southland agreed and called for a school board member to step down given his admitted out of district status.
READ THIS EXCLUSIVE LETTER FROM SCHOOL BOARD MEMBERS DEMANDING DAN OSMAN STEP DOWN!!!
The reality here is that if the situation were reversed and a KCMO politico attempted to hold office in, say, Overland Park . . . That situation would be shut down immediately.
Currently the Jackson County Prosecutor's Office is reviewing the matter.
Here's the most important passage as members of the Hickman Mills School Board attempt to restore order . . .
As members of the Hickman Mills C-1 Board of Education, we want to make our position very clear that we feel Dan Osman must immediately resign from out Board since he has stated in writing, "I am no longer living within district boundaries."
Hopefully, Mr. Osman will do the ethically right thing and resign, since by his own admission he no longer lives in the district, and in fact no longer even lives within the state.
We are grateful for Mr. Osman's volunteer service to the district, but since he has moved out of state it is now time for that to end. If he does not voluntarily tender his resignation, we are prepared to take whatever further actions may be necessary to assure that all board members are residents of the district, which is the clear intent of state law.
Again, read the note in its entirety.
