TRSD has a VERY bad day at Court

For those with inquiring minds, Donna Green's Right to Know case against TRSD went to Court yesterday. Mr. Metzler was not a happy camper. The District's cast of high priced attorneys also put on a less then stellar performance.

The Court rightly understood immediately that the District is applying a unique standard to Ms. green's requests. The Court also was not happy that the District would violate state law when asked for info from a member of the governing body. At one point, the Court asked if Mr. Metzler had to put in a formal request and pay for copies.

The District's attorneys studiously avoided directly answering the Courts repeated questions about where these records are kept at the moment, not wanting to admit that they are on the computer, thereby destroying their argument that they can not provide them in electronic form.

When asked why they print everything out and demand payment for each page, the Attorney responded; it is the District's policy, to which the Court responded, you have a policy that violates State Law?

Mr. Metzler left the hearing early, probably to pop Gaviscon like it was candy. His cocky policy left in tatters on the Court floor.

Transparency is ignored only by those who are trying to hide something.

WOW big deal so in the end they will have to provide computer disc instead of copies, at a MAJOR expense to us taxpayers to battle in court but to miss Green this seems OK because she's lost so many Lawsuits and cases against Metzler she looks like a fool, I guess to her this is her "Waterloo" moment, she will be off of the SB soon enough because at voting time US residents of SANDOWN have had enough of her antics.

ALL THIS WAS ABOUT WAS BEATING METZLER, she could care less about our children and her new minion Accaird who doesn't even live in the district is a joke, says a lot about her.

All the dictator Metzler had to do was release the documents! He is hiding something and we will soon find out the mishandling of our tax dollars. PERIOD! Transparency is what we all want especially if I am paying there salaries I want to know what they are.

Anonymous said...

No, the reason is that they don't want the salaries easy to get to. Making it COST the taxpayer to copy the documents. It should have just been a simple download to a thumb drive or hd.

To 12:35 - Actually, they don't have to supply discs. They get paid for media or paper so do your homework before you bash people with you ignorance.

Anonymous said...

Your ignorance. They would only allow paper copy's that you had to pay for. You bring a thumb drive or a USB external drive. But they wouldn't do it that way making it costly do do paper and put up an intended road block. Go and view the trail that was videoed before you make ignorant statements.

Anonymous said...

The 12:35 blogger doesn't seem to know that you can bring your own media and thinks the scool will supply discs and the taxpayer will foot the bill. If they charge for paper they also charge for media unless you bring it. Did you know if you bring a scanner they don't charge for paper?

To Jan.9 at 12:35pm: what "cases" has she lost? And what does Acciard have to do with this?

Anonymous said...

8:04AM, It is just a nitwit Conman supporter and anti supporter of Acciard and Green trying to make more trouble for the readers to see the truth. This is most likely the same nut that just wont accept the truth of what has been recorded and well published every where for all to see. When the next election comes about we will all see the outcome results that will be surprising to those who are supporting corruption in the town and our regional school system. JMHO is all!!

Your delivery certainly needs work but your message is right on brother!!

This case is a watershed moment in the Right to know Law in NH.
What Metzler's actions reveal, in hiding what are undeniably public documents already in electronic form, is that it would be possible, from now on, for school supers all over NH to be able keep electronic data from the public. School budgets on web sites can be easily managed and published in various places for all the public to see.
If the case goes as bad as it looked in court - I was there, Metzler has done taxpayers a huge favor.
I can suggest to any taxpayer group with a web site that they too should ask for the complete school budget and post it, excluding any exempt information, of which there should be none, for taxpayers to see in its complete form.
You will be amazed what some industrious individuals in the private sector will find.
I hope Judge Lynn writes the Order becasue he was not happy with wnat he said "stuck in his craw" and that it looked personal.
Thank Metzler for doing what The Coalition of NH Taxpayers did not have the resourses to do - open up every school and town budget in the State of New Hampshire.
And thank YOU to the Green's for pushing Metzler back all the way.
It looks like it was a huge taxpayer funded lawsuit gamble for Metzler or he just plain isn't that smart.

Thanks for putting it so clearly. I watched that trial and Metzler didn't do well at all. This will also put the Atkinson BOS on notice about RTK laws. They need to have their feet held to the fire also.

Thanks to Donna Green, she has gone through a lot to expose their "cover ups".

Hey, Eddie the Vampire's back....get your stakes ready.....

Look Eddie, Metzler's a good tire, particularly compared to what we where using before..
but it comes at high cost, and while they do become a little
squirrely when over pressured, I think the increased traction and stability has made for
a much improved ride,

But it does have trouble with green bumps in the road...

And Eddie, while I don't always agree with her, I like Donna Green....Heck, she reminds me
of my old rocker rebel friend, Joan Jett....put a little dime in the jukebox baby...

Eddie, you suck

Green has made a mockery of TRHS, she reminds me of Rex Ryan who once strikes a win and lives of it for years except she will be gone next election.

After all the commentaries above and what is now open to the public record for all to see I doubt very much if Ms. Green will have a problem getting back into office.

HAHAHAHA! a lot of people in Sandown have had enough of Buco and Green just like Atkinson did with Accaird,funny how PC is still involved in the town and Accaird is mere flatulence in the Atkinson wind although he stick his nose into Sandown Drama now with Green, how pathetic.... just look over the video of the town meetings in Sandown and how many people came to them breathing hot fire towards the Greens and Buco for lying to them, the Voters will never forget, BTW funny how Ms. Green doesn't post Londonderry new school budget numbers on her site, they blow TRS out of the water of course she would never post the numbers that speak the truth they wouldn't support her lies.

Anonymous said...

How do you even compare what the Conman has done with Green and Acciard have done beyond what any normal persons is beyond me. What ,if any thing, has Acciard have to do with the TRSD? I haven't seen any posts by him unless I missed one. Go some where else and try promoting your BS.

Your the fool! Corruption knows no boundary's.

Why would Mrs. Green care about Londonderry or post anything about them on her website? Who cares, it's different school district. Moreover, I've been to a few of the public meetings as a taxpayer and parent and I was bullied by two teachers at the session because I voted differently than they did. I had to move because they (literally) each screamed in my two ears. I thought I would be mugged on the way out. What a pack of crazy mean people we live amongst. Just look at the discussion here.

Anonymous said...

I went to the TRSD deliberative session last year and you are right about being bullied if you don't go with the crowd.

Anonymous said...

1/14@3:28PM, I agree that corruption "knows no boundary's" as you say. The subject was about the TRSD and not about any one town . Why is it you can't stay on the subject is a question that needs to be answered. You now appear to be the fool not me for your foolish post . My post at 3:28 still stands and also needs an answer. Are you willing to answer these two things or are you just a blow hard who has nothing better to do than trying to make trouble and further confusion of any thing published here on any subject? If you are willing to answer then go to the post before mine an then read the rest below that and give your answer. I and other readers can't wait to see what you have to say.

@ 8:40 Dear Blockhead, 'Why would Ms. Green care about Londonderry" ....


because she put an entire article on her blog comparing Londonderry to TRSD, why don't you go lay down in the corner and let the adults who know what they are talking about speak.

Anonymous said...

I live in Atkinson so I don't read Mrs. Green's Sanborn blog. She's not our rep. Why don't you go to Londonderry or Sandown and belittle her there like the bully that you are?

Anonymous said...

Jerks like him/her would rather start trouble in other towns than their own town where trouble already is that they can't control on their own. This person has no real group to back them up. A real trouble maker is what he/she are.

Anonymous said...

@ 12:53 CORRECT just like Mark Accaird no longer lives in Atkinson but sticks his nose still into Atkinson politics still bashes PC and he also is all over Donna Greens blog getting involved in the Sandown crap, does that sound like a stable person to you? he doesn't even live in either town.....

Anonymous said...

Phil you answering your own posts again. Your real stable aren't you in the jo video?

Mark Acciard said...

To the poster at 2:35pm; I grew up in Atkinson, Graduated from Timberlane, and went into the Military from Atkinson. I returned to Atkinson when I got out of the military and served on the Budcom. Atkinson has always been my home town despite the fact that a bully with a badge was allowed to harass my family.

I do not "bash" Phil. I speak the documented truth about him. If you find it tough to take ask yourself why?

And commenting upon a subject of which I have knowledge is not "making trouble" it is making a comment. I wonder why this offends you so, as you seem to feel justified in doing the same?

I love the brave souls that feel free to criticize from behind the skirts of anonymity.

Mark, I am 12:53PM and in no way was I referring to you in my post. It seems obvious to me that a Conman lover of corruption, if not himself, used my post to further their own agenda and I stand firmly by my post. I do agree you that you have the right to post about Atkinson as you want especially after what happened to you in the town because you were not in fear to speak up about what was and continues to go on up to this day in town government.

Mark Acciard said...

Thank you very much

Anonymous said...

Mark your tenacity towards a better government reminds me of the struggles our Patriots had with the Tories. Just like our little town, some want to support the King and his loyal court because transparency and doing the right thing is a scary and unpredictable thing after being under the King's wings for so long and will not know the true meaning of "live free or die". I am grateful we had people like you in 1776 who stood up the the King and his henchmen.

What are you throwing us is all bull turds and you should go to some other country where they have social and governing as you like it to be. Hurry ,hurry , hurry and go you turd throwing jerk.

Mark Acciard said...

To 8:03, Thank you for your kind words although I think the analogy a bit grandiose. They had the much tougher time. Phil only lies, and bullies from behind the scenes rarely doing his dirty work himself. Those Patriots had bullets flying at them.
