ATLANTIC CITY
BOARD OF EDUCATION
APPOINTS
GINA HOLMES
TO FILL SEAT VACATED
BY SCOTT EVANS
 
The level of disloyalty in Atlantic City is breathtaking. 
 
Nothing surprises me any more.
 
This is meant to be no disrespect to Gina Holmes. I have never met Gina Holmes. I have never heard the name Gina Holmes before.
 
I do know this much ... When Don Hurley, Pierre Hollingsworth, Iris Hernandez, Bobby Turner, JoAnn Daley, Warren Massey and a few others were busy working so hard to prevent Craig Callaway from grabbing control of the Board of Education ... I never heard of Gina Holmes being any where whatsoever in this important fight.
 
It appears that her claim to fame is that she stepped aside in favor of John Devlin, when John earned a well deserved reappointment back on the Board last year. John is as hard-working as they come.
 
But, I am also disappointed in John on this one.
 
How soon some people forget. In fact, it was Don Hurley, who pulled cash from his own pocket to file the formal appeal for Shay Steele ... and submitted Steele's brief with only a few minutes to spare ... or, Callaway would have gained control of the Board because the appeal is the only thing that kept Callaway from grabbing hold of the only City function that he failed to gain control of, during his reign of terror and crime.
 
To this day, Don has not been properly thanked for his supreme efforts. 
 
A very established and hard-working candidate had been identified ... and, she had the support of many of the real hard-working Atlantic City residents. I'll call them the real doers, who actually make good things happen.
 
This is just the latest example as to why I rarely endorse any candidates any more. These disloyal people are simply not worth it and they do not deserve my consideration.
 
It's not just what they did tonight ... It's how they did it. They showed disrespect to a very good person, who deserved better.
 
I will not be supporting any of those responsible for this again in the future.
 
Disrespect, poor communication all the way around on this one.
