Outgoing Democrat BOE Chairman Leslie Moriarty has endorsed any and all Republican opponents of incumbent member Peter Sherr. This despite the fact that Democrats in Greenwich have traditionally declined to get involved in internecine Republican politics, despite the fact that she was requested by her party’s chairman not to do so, and despite the fact that it was Peter Sherr whose vote put her into the BOE Chairman’s position and placed Sherr beyond the pale so far as his fellow Republicans are concerned.
So if Moriarty is incapable of personal or party loyalty, to whom does she pledge allegiance? It seems to me that she’s sworn fealty to Republicans Jim Campbell and Ed Dadakis, the architects of the “go-along-to-get-along” school of governance that embraces Republicans and lickspittle Democrats alike. Everybody gets along, no one is rude to the school superintendent (no matter how brief his tenure) and proper deference to education experts and Hartford morons is paid, always.
Good riddance to Moriarty. As she leaves, cast one vote, and one vote only in the Republican BOE race and mark it for Peter Sherr. Something needs shaking up over there at the school board, and Sherr’s the only one who holds even the slightest promise of doing so.
