TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! JUDGE RULES AGAINST HICKMAN SCHOOL BOARD RIGGED ELECTION PLOY!!!
Controversy continues in a provisionally accredited Kansas City school district that has seen an exceptional degree of infighting among leadership this year.
The latest about a contested election back in April thanks to our blog community . . .
A JUDGE RECENTLY STRUCK DOWN A HICKMAN MILLS SCHOOL BOARD STRATEGY AGAINST VOTERS!!!
A word about the situation . . .
"The public needs to know about that dysfunctional district and their attempt to circumvent the democratic process."
Recently, we heard KCMO lawyer Clinton Adams was handling this case and it's an important move not only because he hasn't ever lost in his contests against Hickman Mills but also because it seems that he represents a broad coalition of residents worried about the state of the School Board.
Here's an e-mail circulating around the district.

Judge Thwarts Hickman Mills School District Politics
The judge has ruled. The Hickman Mills School District was wrong when it refused to issue a certificate of election to Evelyn Hildebrand, the highest vote-getter in last April’s school board election; instead, opting to issue the certificate of election and administer the oath of office to the other two candidates, who came in second and third.
The third, and last, place finisher, Shawn Kirkwood, after being illegally sworn in, was once again elected President. When Hildebrand protested, Kirkwood used school district resources and tax payer dollars in an effort to circumvent the democratic process.
This effort to steal an election should not be happening at the school board level of all places. The education of our children is too important for this nonsense. This is the same school board that recently tried to keep Dan Osman as a member after he moved to Overland Park.
With governance of the district in such shambles, it’s no wonder it can’t educate the kids above the provisionally accredited rating. It’s time to stop playing politics; time for Kirkwood to move on; time to swear in the legally and rightfully elected person. This school board needs to get out of politics and start doing the job they were elected to do.
