Community rallies to support Zeb Brown at HCSD meeting

He said that Brown was removed without explanation, justification and just cause.

“Just ‘we felt like it’ or because of politics or whatever everyone is suggesting it is,” he said. “Zeb had vision, he was dedicated, he held people accountable; all these are something that didn’t happen much there. When people aren’t performing well and they’re self-serving they don’t like to be held accountable, so they make a lot of noise and you’ve listened to some of that, I’m afraid.”

The HCSB wasn’t listening to the people, said Kriser.

“Or at least I wasn’t approached and I wasn’t asked; nobody consulted me,” he said. “Each of you is an elected official and you’ve been entrusted to rights and powers to make choices for the benefit of the students and the school. With those rights and powers granted by us, the people who give you that power, you have a responsibility.”

He said the HCSB answers to the community.

“You answer to us, we don’t answer to you,” he said. “I say that respectfully. We’ve got to be of the right paradigm of mind if we’re going to find a solution to this and set this right.”

As parents, he said, they would have to live with the lasting affects caused by the decisions the HCSD make.
