    Given the percentages, husfelt has done well. Anyone in any position tries to use their knowledge of an applicant's past performance, like when they both worked together.....before they desired to promote. Sometimes it works out & sometimes not. if you were promoted to a top position, would you surround yourself with unknowns, or those of which you have some knowledge? Yep, I thought so!!!!

    Another pat on the back for one of Husfelt's buddies. You figured he would have learned with the Bozeman debate. Nothing directed at Mr. Pilson, but he was first appointed to an adminstrative position in 2002 and probably at Moseley....Who was the principal at Moseley in 2002.... Who were the other canidates that were recommended? The school board elections can't get here soon enough. Great job Husfelt. Keep looking out.

    Another appointment from Mosley go figure coming from Bill Husfelt. Mr Payne was fired for playing around with female staff memeber, Birdwell band Director was fired and arrested and was Husfelts buddy when he was told about his behavior.
