Four Apply For Kenosha Unified School Board “Vacancy”

Megan Norris, Eric Meadows, Carl Bryan and Brian Thomas

Four local residents have applied to the Kenosha Unified School District to be appointed to join the board of education for a one-year term. Board member Eric Meadows was elected in the Spring of 2022 to serve a three year term. Kenosha Unified Superintendent Jeff Weiss (D) and school board president Yolanda Santos (D) decided to unilaterally remove Meadows from the board for what they say was a “clerical error”, an assertion most don’t believe. Because of this unprecedented move, there is a vacancy on the board. The policy that Weiss and Santos are relying on is Policy 8330. This is clearly incorrect. The first line of this policy reads:

“Vacancies on the School Board, including resignations and retirements, shall be filled following the procedure outlined below in accordance with state law.”

Meadows has neither resigned, nor retired. Four members have applied to fill the spot. They will be interviewed by the current board on February 20, 2023 at 6 p.m. at Indian Trail High School at 6800 60th St in Kenosha.

    1. Serious question is does he/she/they/whatever have aids or another illness? He looks AWFUL compared to before when he was a tub of lard. Now he’s just frightening and looks like one of the pedo losers you’d find on Chris Hansen’s shows. Keep him and his groomer freak show “friends” far away from our kids please !!

      1. So much stupidity and bigotry, plus ignorance in one comment. Aids!? Holy shit, get with the times. That’s so 1990’s. Self hatred is a common sign when hiding in the closet for a long time.
        Chris Hansen should have caught himself before he got caught up in that sting operation looking to hook up with underage girls. You sure you aren’t just projecting your own fantasies here?

        1. Carl Bryan literally brags about his drag show performances. You want that kind of freak making decisions on behalf of our kids? I sure don’t. It’s a real shame you hate kids that much apparently. Go support your fruity freaks elsewhere loser.

  1. The board could appoint Meadows and move on. I think this respects the voters and makes some amends for the screwup.

    But people in the education business aren’t always smart so they may give it to someone else and that sets the stage for the court battle.

    One scenario: Meadows sues to remove the new board member on the grounds that the new guy was illegally appointed to a seat that isn’t vacant. Not sure how far that will go.

  2. Carl Bryan LGB what ever alphabet you want ..Left leaning POS .. stay in Madison and have a transgender fashion show .. Kenosha has enough liberal Aholes in all forms of government ..

    1. Well, Brandon. He may be liberal. He may be gay. But you sound like homophobic ass. Not my favorite guy, either, but oppose him on lack of merit and show some class instead of ass.

  3. The Board President and Superintendent do not have legal authority to remove a Board member elected by the voters. TERRY ROSE

      1. And if they don’t and they do then it opens the door for Mr. Meadows to file a quo warranto against the new board member on the grounds he was unlawfully appointed and thus holding office illegally.

        1. Never heard of a quo warranto before but I looked it up and it seems to fit:

          (1)  An action may be brought by the attorney general in the name of the state, upon his or her own information or upon the complaint of any private party, against the parties offending in the following cases:
          (a) When any person shall usurp, intrude into or unlawfully hold or exercise any public office, civil or military, or any franchise within this state, or any office in a corporation created by the authority of this state; or
          (b) When any public officer, civil or military, shall have done or suffered an act which, by the provisions of law, shall work a forfeiture of office; or
          (c) When any association or number of persons shall act, within this state, as a corporation without being duly incorporated.
          (2) Such action may be brought in the name of the state by a private person on personal complaint when the attorney general refuses to act or when the office usurped pertains to a county, town, city, village, school district or technical college district.

    1. I’m surprised a lot more people didn’t apply, a lottery ticket to a job that you make a couple bucks on whether or not you are any good at it or not, without all the expense and time needed to mount a campaign for an actual election. If this doesn’t work out maybe he can be the new Ambassador to Luxembourg.?

  4. Kevin, don’t forget Carl Bryan has routinely performed in drag. Is he actively looking to groom our kids now by applying? Disgusting.
