High School Justice Warriors or Useful Idiots?

According to a Ft. Myers News-Press article on March 12th, “more than 2,500 schools nationwide have signed up for a March 13th planned walkout to honor the victims of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting.” Adding, “the walkout also is meant to protest gun violence and support stricter gun laws.”

But who is behind this nationwide effort to “community organize” America’s youth to walk out of their classrooms to “support stricter gun laws”?

Tax & Spend Roy Terry

 

“We love your hard earned tax dollars”

  “Wealth distribution never gets old”

    “No dreaded private sector for us”

 

 

Bolduc & Bracci would like to remind Collier County parents and taxpayers of four documented facts:

  1. In June 2016, Collier County School Board member, Roy Terry, voted “yes” in a 3-2 vote to approve a $976 million budget which increased your taxes by nearly $90 million for the 2016-17 school year.
  2. In June 2017, Collier County School Board Chair, Roy Terry, voted “yes” in a 4-1 vote to approve a $1.05 billion budget which increased your taxes by nearly $74 million for the 2017-18 school year.
  3. In November 2017, Roy Terry, votes “yes” in a 3-2 vote to spend more of your tax dollars to sue the Republican dominated Florida Legislature over House Bill HB 7069 which directs, among other things, that School Districts share capital dollars with Charter Schools at an equal level to all schools in a District.
  4. Roy Terry is the only member of the current School Board to vote to increase your taxes by $164 million over the last two years, and vote to sue the Republican dominated Florida Legislature over capital funds to Charter Schools.

Now, fast forward to this week, and the Naples Daily News pens an article, Charter schools in Collier County fear losing revenue from public district, which details the total capital outlay sharing by Superintendent Kamela Patton’s Administration and Charter Schools amounts to a whopping $4 million.

That’s right, the Naples Daily News, the Teachers Union, the Democrat Party and Superintendent Kamela Patton all promoted an increase in your taxes by $164 million over the last two years, then promoted joining a lawsuit to stop Charter Schools, many vastly outperforming traditional public schools in measurable student achievement scores, because they didn’t want to share $4 million of the $1.05 billion they receive from you, the taxpayer.

You’d think Roy Terry would be more interested in addressing the fact that 25 out of 33 Elementary Schools in Collier County score 66% or below in Grade 5 English Language Arts Reading Proficiency. That’s right, 76% of Elementary Schools in Collier County score D-Level or F-Level in Grade 5 Reading and Writing Proficiency.

The “M” in Roy M. Terry must stand for “Money”…….”Your Money” misspent to prop-up the Billion dollar Education fiasco known as the bloated Kamela Patton Administration.

 

 

 

Fuzzy Math With CCPS AICE Scores

As reported by Bolduc and Bracci on August 25, it appears the District has developed a disturbing habit of cherry-picking the “highlights” of District test scores, while simultaneously ignoring the “lowlights” of District test scores so they can be addressed and improved upon.

Case in point; the District’s recent Press Release on Cambridge AICE scores highlighted AICE subjects where the District scored over 90% – Global Research Perspectives (97%), Media Studies (92%), and Spanish Language (97%), yet was silent on the District’s very poor performance on key subjects such as – Biology (25%) , History (36%), English Literature (29%), Chemistry (0%) and Math (0%). (click here)

Not to be outdone, the Naples Daily News, otherwise known as the daily apologist for Superintendent Kamela Patton’s bloated $1.05 Billion budget to educate 47,000 students, while delivering English Proficiency scores across all grades in the 50s (Still an F), published another puff-piece, titled:

“Collier’s Cambridge students passed AICE Exam at higher rate than national average” (click here)

Interesting, Naples Daily News Education Reporter, Annika Hammershlagg, failed to mention the biggest reason why Collier’s average pass rate went from 70% in FY16 to 75% in FY17, which is Kamela Patton’s tried-and-true friend……cherry-picking.

You see, per the previously linked District Press Release on Cambridge AICE scores, (click here) in FY16, the District Scored a 30% in Chemistry and 29% in Mathematics. So, rather than work on improving the District’s pass percentage in these key STEM disciplines, what does Superintendent Patton do? Easy, just drop the two tests all together for FY17. That’s right, Ms. STEM just drops the exams because the taxpayers will find out they are sending over a Billion dollars of their hard earned money to a STEM Emperor with no clothes (apologies for the visual).

Then, once Superintendent Patton drops key STEM exams, she simultaneously pushes to increase the number of students taking AICE General Paper from 548 to 1409, which accounts for an astonishing 40% of all students taking an AICE Exam across all subjects.

So why did Superintendent Patton funnel so many students into AICE General Paper for FY17? Not sure, but do you think the fact that AICE General Paper had a 96% pass rate the year before had something to do with it?

Based on the above, it’s clear the Naples Daily News’ so called Education Reporter does zero investigative research when reporting on District test results. But rather, just regurgitates Kamela Patton’s Press Release so the public will not be outraged at receiving McDonald’s Education results, after being promised Capital Grille quality for over $22,000 per student.

Jen Mitchell Admits CCPS Is A Dictatorship

 

Last week, we saw the Naples Daily News announce the candidacy of Jen Mitchell for Collier County School Board by hard-hitting Education Reporter, excuse me, CCPS propagandist, Annika Hammerschlag.

In typical Hammerschlag and Naples Daily News fashion, which was documented during the 2016 School Board election cycle of coordinating with Superintendent Kamela Patton to promote her hand-picked candidates of Stephanie Lucarelli and Erick Carter, the so called paper of record in Naples, dusted off their glowing articles (propaganda) of Lucarelli and Carter, then merely inserted the name Mitchell for the 2018 election cycle.

Of course, just like Lucarelli and Carter, Mitchell voiced frustration over Collier’s local education groups like Parents ROCK, Southwest Florida Citizens Alliance and Bolduc & Bracci who dare to accurately document Patton’s dismal D-Level and F-Level English Proficiency Scores, where 26% of Shadowlawn Elementary 3rd graders score 3 or better in English Proficiency, yet receive an “A” Grade from the Florida Department of Education. Not to mention, how over 94% of Collier County Elementary Schools cannot score above 80% in 5th Grade English Proficiency. (link attached)

Rather than caring to improve horrific Elementary English Proficiency Scores, which students never recover from prior to High School graduation, Jen Mitchell and the Naples Daily News opined:

“Mitchell voiced frustration over Collier’s vocal education groups who often speak negatively about the school system. It’s unsettling that these groups have ties to sitting School Board members”

“My concern is that, at a minimum, our representation on the board should be rooting for its success, and I don’t feel like that’s happening,”

You see, while School Board member Kelly Lichter has been attacked in a coordinated fashion by the Naples Daily News, Superintendent Patton and local Alt-Left Democrat ACLU front groups like the Coalition for Quality Public Education for stewarding Mason Classical Academy to a 92% 5th Grade English Proficiency Score, easily the top score throughout CCPS Elementary Schools, Jen Mitchell does not want to work with Kelly Lichter to bring Mason Classical Academy’s success to all CCPS schools, but would rather join current School Board puppets Lucarelli, Carter and Roy Terry to sing “kumbaya” and “collaborate” on continuing Superintendent Patton’s dreadful curriculum, over-testing and initiative to transform teachers into facilitators of digital classrooms.

Jen Mitchell’s website also let the cat out of the bag as to how CCPS is not governed by your elected Board Members, but rather, by an unelected triumvirate of Superintendent Patton, the Naples Daily News and their “corporate partners”.  Specifically, when Jen Mitchell described her prior work with CCPS, she stated,

“As a result of these activities, I was asked to participate in the Champions for Learning Connect Now Project, a series of workshops that led to what became the CCPS Strategic Plan.  I was proud to be among the parents, educators and community members selected to develop the Connect Now vision for our school district and path toward implementing it.”

In other words, Jen Mitchell was hand picked by Superintendent Patton and Champions for Learning, where the Board Chair is Bill Barker, Publisher of the Naples Daily News, to develop CCPS Policy as part of an self-anointed “council” or “committee” reminiscent of the old Soviet Union, where the English translation of “Soviet” means “council” or “committee”.

And now, Jen Mitchell wants to join current Politburo members Roy Terry, Erick Carter and Stephanie Lucarelli to ensure a rubber stamp majority vote in the affirmative on all future Dictatorial whims of Dear Leader Kamela Patton and the Naples Daily News.

I’m sure a PAC funded by Alt-Left Democrats to the tune of $250,000 is being formed, and glowing articles about her “collaboration” are being approved by Bill Barker as we write.

Charlottesville – Brought To You By George Soros – Part 2

George Orwell (real name Eric Blair) was educated at Eton College, a well-known deep state education center – it has produced 19 British Prime Ministers including David Cameron. While at Eton, Orwell was introduced to the Fabian Society. As will be outlined, the Fabian Society has been instrumental in the global Communist agenda, in much the same manner, it was the force behind the creation of the Socialist Labor Party in Britain, where the current leader of the Labor Party, Jeremy Corbyn, appointed a Communist to help lead his election campaign, telling the stunned electorate that Andrew Murray, the Stalin apologist and defender of North Korea, is a “member of the Labor Party like me”, despite the fact the man he appointed was a member of either the Communist Party of Britain or the Communist Party of Great Britain for over 40 years.

The name Fabian is said to come from ‘Fabius’, the Roman general, Quintus Fabius Maximus Verrucosus. Fabius carefully planned strategies to wear down his enemies over a long period of time avoiding battles that could prove decisive either way. And of course, this is exactly how the global agenda has been planned out by George Soros, who studied at the Fabian London School of Economics, and other “New World Order” supporters calling for “Change”, “Social Justice” and “Climate Justice”.

Fittingly, the Fabian society has a wolf in sheep clothing for its logo. How appropriate, as George Soros and Hillary Clinton hide behind their media contrived benevolent Charities, Foundations and Non-Government Organizations (NGOs) to fund their destabilization programs designed to slowly concentrate power in the hands of the state, following the Fabian Communist blue-print to a tee.

Many speculate that George Orwell became disillusioned with the Fabian Society, and 1984 was written not as fiction, but as an expose of the knowledge of the Soros, Fabian agenda. In 1984, Orwell describes the elite’s greatest weapon, cognitive dissonance, to a tee. He calls it, rather appropriately, doublethink – this is exactly how the majority of humanity has remained in servitude for thousands of years. Most people actually fight to protect their own belief system, dismissing information that challenges it without further investigation. These are the people, sadly tens of millions, with their heads in the sand.

Which leads us to Charlottesville, and the Democrat-led, often violent, push to tear down every statue dedicated to anyone who served in the Confederate Army, or for that matter, any southerner who lived before 1860. You see, due to Fabians like George Soros controlling our Public School History Textbooks for the past 100 years, combined with a Soros and Clinton compliant media, the majority of America has grown up believing the Civil War was fought to end slavery and believing that the South seceded following the election of Abraham Lincoln because he was going to end slavery despite the fact anyone can read the following transcript of the fourth Lincoln-Douglas Debate in Charleston, Illinois, where Abraham Lincoln stated:

“While I was at the hotel to-day, an elderly gentleman called upon me to know whether I was really in favor of producing a perfect equality between the Negroes and white people. [Great Laughter.] While I had not proposed to myself on this occasion to say much on that subject, yet as the question was asked me I thought I would occupy perhaps five minutes in saying something in regard to it. I will say then that I am not, nor ever have been, in favor of bringing about in any way the social and political equality of the white and black races, [applause]-that I am not nor ever have been in favor of making voters or jurors of Negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with white people; and I will say in addition to this that there is a physical difference between the white and black races which I believe will forever forbid the two races living together on terms of social and political equality. And inasmuch as they cannot so live, while they do remain together there must be the position of superior and inferior, and I as much as any other man am in favor of having the superior position assigned to the white race. I say upon this occasion I do not perceive that because the white man is to have the superior position the negro should be denied everything. I do not understand that because I do not want a Negro woman for a slave I must necessarily want her for a wife. [Cheers and laughter.] My understanding is that I can just let her alone. I am now in my fiftieth year, and I certainly never have had a black woman for either a slave or a wife. So it seems to me quite possible for us to get along without making either slaves or wives of Negroes. I will add to this that I have never seen, to my knowledge, a man, woman or child who was in favor of producing a perfect equality, social and political, between Negroes and white men. … I will also add to the remarks I have made (for I am not going to enter at large upon this subject,) that I have never had the least apprehension that I or my friends would marry Negroes if there was no law to keep them from it, [laughter] but as Judge Douglas and his friends seem to be in great apprehension that they might, if there were no law to keep them from it, [roars of laughter] I give him the most solemn pledge that I will to the very last stand by the law of this State, which forbids the marrying of white people with Negroes. [Continued laughter and applause.]”

In other words, control of our history textbooks by Fabian Socialists and Democrats like Soros, Clinton, Shumer and Wassermann-Schultz  has created decades of “low information” protesters who believe the false premise the Civil War was only about ending slavery, and that every Confederate statue in the South needs to be torn down because every Northern soldier was an Abolitionist, and every Confederate soldier was a racist KKK defender of slavery, when Abraham Lincoln clearly stated:

I as much as any other man am in favor of having the superior position assigned to the white race.”

Statues are symbols, the meaning of which varies depending on who you ask.  Lincoln’s revealing quote calls into doubt those who say in lockstep that the Northerners were strict abolitionists and every Southern general was a racist.

As a nation, are we going to continue with George Soros’s doublethink, and Socialist control of History Textbooks to justify the destruction of our nation’s past? Or, are we going to end our cognitive dissidence, and expose George Soros, Hillary Clinton, the dishonest Media and fake Republicans like Marco Rubio, and Collier County School Board members Roy Terry, Erick Carter and Stephanie Lucarelli as the Fabian Socialist wolves in sheep’s clothing they actually are?

Charlottesville – Brought To You By George Soros

Author’s note: all blue font links to source documentation

After reading this latest post to Bolduc & Bracci, I highly recommend everyone go to your favorite brick and mortar, or online bookstore, and order the following three classic books by Historian Antony C. Sutton:

  1. Wall Street and the Bolshevik Revolution
  2. Wall Street and the Rise of Hitler
  3. Wall Street and FDR

In these three classics, Mr. Sutton’s scholarship, which has gone unrefuted for close to 50 years, thoroughly documents how elite global banking and financial families such as the Rothschilds, Rockefellers, Schiffs, Warburgs, and now Soros, have used the time tested blueprint of “Problem, Reaction, Solution” to consolidate financial and social control over entire nations.

So what is “Problem, Reaction, Solution”, and how does it relate to Charlottesville?

In a nutshell, it can be defined in three stages:

Stage 1 – Create the problem – Bomb the Maine in Havana, Gulf of Tonkin in Vietnam, or create an economic crisis via Central Bank manipulation of currency and debt…..think Wiemar Republic, the 2008 Mortgage Crisis and the Great Depression.

Stage 2 – Through the elite bankers bought-and-paid-for Mainstream Media, repeat the version of the problem Wall Street wants the public to buy hook, line and sinker….Spanish Cuban’s bombed the Maine, Vietnam attacked our Navy in the Gulf of Tonkin, Germans printed too much money, subprime borrowers extended themselves too far. Then the people react with outrage and fear without looking for the truth themselves, and say, this needs to change, “what is the government going to do about it”!

Stage 3 – Through the elite bankers bought-and-paid-for politicians, offer the solution to the problems the elite bankers have covertly created in the first place.

So, let’s test out the theory of “Problem, Reaction, Solution” on Ukraine a few years ago.

Stage 1 – Victoria Nuland of the US State Department announces in 2013, the United States has partnered with ExxonMobil and Chevron (Rockefeller Standard Oil Companies) to spend $5 billion to subvert the democratically elected government of Ukraine because they are evil. Riots and shootings of Police soon follow in 2014.

Stage 2 – The Media repeats over, and over again, that peaceful protesters were shot merely for calling for Ukraine’s freedom. When in actuality, Nuland was caught on the phone admitting she was going to install Central Banker “Yats” to run Ukraine even before the so called protests started. Then, another leaked phone conversation confirmed the Kiev Snipers were hired by the so called “protesters” flush with $5 billion of your tax dollars.

Stage 3 – Psychotic US politicians led by John McCain, meet with “freedom fighters in Kiev” calling for Vladimir Putin to stop messing with Ukraine’s Democracy, when these “freedom fighters” turn out to be blood-thirsty Neo-Nazis, looking to impose authoritarian social and economic control over the people of Ukraine.

In other words, the US Government’s solution to the Ukrainian protests created by the US Government, and the shooting of Police Officers funded by the US Government, is to vote in an authoritarian Socialist Neo-Nazi Government endorsed and funded by John McCain and the US Government.

Now for Charlottesville…….

Stage 1 – Unrepentant Nazi collaborator, George Soros funds Neo-Nazis on one side, to clash with his funded Neo-Communists on the other side.

Stage 2 – The bought-and-paid-for Mainstream Media only blames the George Soros funded Neo-Nazi’s for the violence while lumping in all Libertarians, Conservative Republicans and Constitutionalists as “Alt-Right” KKK Neo-Nazis.

Stage 3 –  Bought-and-paid-for Politicians like John McCain, Chuck Shumer, Nancy Pelosi deem all President Trump supporting Libertarians, Conservative Republicans and Constitutionalists as “Alt-Right” KKK Nazis who need to have their free speech shut down, and the Bill of Rights suspended in the name of national unity, national love and national peace.

Que up the Bono songs and tambourines while the Constitution dies a silent death.

 

 

 

Climate of Corruption

When Al Gore, the United Nations, and the rest of the Religion (Cult?) of Global Warming claimed without one peer-reviewed paper published in a scholarly journal that humans are bad for the future of our planet, anyone with a IQ above room temperature rightly called these people out as modern day Snake Oil Salesmen…..or Salesmyn according to Facebook’s 57 genders.

However, now that this same Religion (Cult) of Carbon Dioxide Fascists have focused their attack to claim dogs and cats are harmful to the planet, Bolduc & Bracci have to drawn the line between insanity, and just plain Maxine Waters level nuts.

Specifically, per the linked article,  UCLA professor Gregory S. Okin found that meat-eating dogs and cats create the equivalent of 64 million tons of carbon dioxide per year based on the energy consumption required to produce their food, so perhaps we should transition from dogs and cats to ferrets and hamsters.

Which begs the question, is this the same amount of carbon dioxide used by Al Gore, Leonardo DiCaprio, Nancy Pelosi and Bill Gates flying the globe on their private jets to receive awards from each other? Or, is it the same level of carbon dioxide used by Bill Clinton and convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein flying back and forth between Epstein’s private island, known as Orgy Island, on his private jet, known as The Lolita Express?

While Collier County Schools fills our children’s textbooks with Climate Change Science (Cult), the following are a few links to quacks at unheard of schools like MIT, Harvard and Princeton which prove believing in Man Made Climate Change is like believing in Voodoo.

  1. MIT Climate Scientist Richard Lindzen
  2. Meteorologist Joe Bastardi
  3. More Than 1000 International Scientists Dissent Over Man-Made Global Warming.

We wonder when the Greater Naples Chamber of Commerce and Naples Daily News will award Collier Schools Superintendent Kamela Patton with the Golden Gore Award for her relentless promotion of unproven Voodoo?

You know, the demonetization of an essential trace gas, key to the life cycle of our planet, which somehow traps in earth’s heat while comprising 0.04% of our atmosphere.

Jim Jones would be proud, and he has some Kool-Aid to cool your mouth from Al Gore’s heat.

No Country For White Men

Victory over Japan Day is the day on which the Empire of Japan surrendered in World War II, in effect ending the war. The term has been applied to both of the days on which the initial announcement of Japan’s surrender was made – to the afternoon of August 15, 1945, in Japan, and, because of time zone differences, to August 14, 1945, when it was announced in the United States.

Given we are on the eve of honoring the 416,800 United States Military members who gave their lives in World War II after solemnly swearing that they will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; Bolduc and Bracci would like to point out the recent AP US History Textbook selected by Superintendent Kamela Patton’s stacked Committee of Cultural Marxist Democrats, creates an atmosphere of racial tension by thoroughly diminishing the role of white American male soldiers in winning World War II, while simultaneously singling out minority groups for special distinction and accomplishment.

Starting on page 692, or the first page of Chapter 23 in the linked Textbook, the author provides individual photos or paintings, along with detailed stories of a black soldier, women soldiers, Hispanic soldiers, Navajo soldiers, women riveters and interned Japanese, but not one photo and accompanying story of a white male soldier.

The author’s abhorrence for white men also becomes obvious when he describes three typical soldiers on page 699.  First, he outlines two white soldiers; one who,

“flew combat missions over Europe until he was shot down in June 1944″

and the second, who served on planes which,

“flew supplies from India to beleaguered Chinese forces”.

The third soldier was black, and was,

“assigned to the Tuskegee Airmen, an African-American unit that achieved considerable distinction in World War II. He flew 149 combat missions during the US invasion of Italy and received the Distinguished Flying Cross”.

In other words, one of the two white soldiers was shot down, while the other flew food from India to support the Chinese Army, but the black soldier was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross. Very fair and balanced news.

The author’s race-based warped view of History is culminated in the chapter summary, where he asks the students:

“In your opinion, why were Japanese Americans and Japanese immigrants interned, while German and Italian-Americans were not?”

“Suppose you were preparing to write an essay on discrimination in war industries and the military in World War II.”

“In your opinion, was Truman’s decision to use atomic bomb against Japan justified? Why or why not?”

Bolduc & Bracci are all for teaching our children about the bravery and accomplishments of all soldiers who served in World War II, but this AP US History textbook goes beyond the pale in an effort to create race and gender tension by purposely ignoring or minimizing the heroic deeds of white male soldiers. Sadly, this textbook will be in the Collier County Schools for the next ten years, unless voters finally learn the truth about Superintendent Patton’s Anti-American agenda, and vote in a School Board majority who wants to make Collier Schools Great Again!

Meet The New Boss, Same As The Old Boss

Stop us if you have heard this before, but the Sunday, July 30, 2017 edition of the Naples Daily News included an Editorial (“Collaboration makes Collier ready for children’s future”) which described how wonderful it is that Collier County is home to an array of benevolent nonprofits and foundations working to collaborate with government and business to improve our children’s future, because apparently, we parents have no idea what is best for our children’s future.

Specifically, the Editorial lauded Champions For Learning as the nonprofit education foundation in Collier which is facilitating the teamwork of six initial partners that graciously agreed to work together on educational matters in June 2015. Others included the Greater Naples Chamber of Commerce, United Way of Collier County and the Naples Children & Education Foundation, sponsors of the Naples Winter Wine Festival.

Does this “children’s future” roll-out sound eerily similar to the Blue Zones School Pledge roll-out where self-anointed “community leaders” like Naples Daily News Publisher, Bill Barker and Collier Schools Superintendent, Kamela Patton joined the Blue Zones Steering Committee, created by NCH CEO Allen Weiss, to force the authoritarian Blue Zones School Pledge on our children?

Surely you remember the Blue Zones School Pledge roll-out where our benevolent nonprofits, foundations and government officials told parents that Blue Zones was “all about choices”, when the actual school pledge stated the following:

“Ensure foods and beverages served outside of school hours meet the USDA Smart Snacks in School nutrition standards, including after-school fundraisers, concession stands at sporting events, etc.”

“Prohibit the sale and consumption of soda and other sugar sweetened beverages on campus, including those brought from home.”

In other words, benevolent Blue Zones was really all about authoritarian control to force our children to only eat Michelle Obama’s government approved food, and eliminate individual choices, including those of parents.

Further, like the Friday The 13th movie series, this “children’s future” roll-out is being forced on parents and taxpayers by the same self-anointed “community leader” cast of characters which brought us the authoritarian Blue Zones School Pledge.

For starters, Bill Barker not only serves as Publisher of the Naples Daily News “children’s future” Editorial, he also serves as Board Member, and Past Chair of Champions for Learning, the nonprofit spearheading this “children’s future” initiative. Additionally, since Bill Barker is the Chair-Elect of the Greater Naples Chamber of Commerce, a leading partner in this “children’s future” educational initiative, the fact that this “children’s future” initiative is being sold as a broad-based, community wide project is Very Fake News.  In reality, it represents the “collective decisions” of a select few elite members of our county who take it up on themselves to impose their will on our children.

And to eliminate all doubt that this “children’s future” educational roll-out is Very Fake News, as it will do nothing to help raise Collier School’s D-Level and F-Level Reading and Math Proficiency Scores (click here for link), is the fact that the current Board Chair of Champions for Learning is a retired Time Warner executive, parent company of CNN, the fakest-of-all fake news organizations!

A Billion Dollar Fiasco

“The trouble with Socialism is that eventually you run out of other people’s money”

— Margaret Thatcher

If anyone needed more proof on why tax-and-spend Superintendent Kamela Patton partnered with tax-and-spend Collier Democrats, the Teachers Union, ACLU front groups like the Coalition for Quality Public Education, and of course, the Naples Daily News to get Stephanie Lucarelli and Erick Carter elected to the Collier County School Board, then look no further than Kamela Patton’s latest proposed School Budget to fund her severely bloated administration.

On the backdrop of last year’s budget, which increased your taxes by $90 Million, Patton’s current budget plans to increase your taxes by another $74 Million, or a breathtaking $164 Million of increased taxes over the last two years alone.

That’s right, Superintendent Patton’s new budget wants to confiscate over $1.05 Billion (with a B) of your hard earned money this year to produce D-level and F-level student achievement results.

No wonder Stephanie Lucarelli and Erick Carter parroted Superintendent Patton’s fake news line that she is positioning the District to be debt free in 10 years on the campaign trail. Should not be that hard when Patton’s puppet rubber stamp School Board of Terry, Lucarelli and Carter plan to raise your taxes by a projected $820 Million over the next 10 years to produce Reading and Math Proficiency results below the Mendoza Line.
