On Being the Spokesperson for the Board

So one of the main reasons I had to really think long and hard about doing regular blog posting for the AAPS News is not that I don’t love to talk about education or district issues, — because I do, ask anyone!  It is because as Board President I am, technically, the official spokesperson for the Board.  When I am speaking for just myself as a Trustee, I always need to clarify that point, as the presumption is that my speech reflects the Board’s opinion or actions.  I do have distinct opinions about issues just like any other Trustee, but those need to be articulated at the Board table, not in official communication about the Board’s work or decisions.  So, it is my plan to keep the blog posts as factual and to the Board’s expressed thinking and action as much as is possible from a subjective being.  And if it is my opinion alone, I will either say so – or try to keep it to myself!
