Willingboro superintendent given vote of no confidence by education association (June 27, 2012)
WILLINGBORO — The Willingboro Education Association has taken a vote of no confidence in Superintendent Ronald Taylor, and the school board has transferred numerous staff members despite public pleas against the move.
The association, which represents about 600 teachers and other staff, voted overwhelmingly earlier this month. President Vicki Benedict told the school board at Monday’s lengthy meeting that the association does not believe Taylor is doing a good job of leading the district. She read a list of union grievances, including his failure to improve employee morale and his acting in an “unprofessional manner” on occasion.
Benedict asked the board take action, but board President Dennis Tunstall expressed support for Taylor, who just completed his first full school year, and his efforts to “turn the tides” in the district.
“For too long, this district has operated on a status-quo basis,” Tunstall said. “We are confident Dr. Taylor is the right person to lead this district.”
Board member Rebecca Perrone was not as supportive.
“I don’t have much confidence in the superintendent,” Perrone said.
She called Taylor “unprofessional” and questioned his hiring of “three friends” as assistant superintendents at a total cost of about $400,000 in salaries.
“They are all his buddies,” Perrone said, claiming one of them is “incompetent.”
After being gaveled down and warned by board Solicitor William Donio of Cooper Levenson that she was making “strong, inappropriate comments,” Perrone continued to question if the district is paying too much for its assistant superintendents.
