Montgomery County superintendent in Ireland
A Montgomery County parents group that is vigilant about keeping track of what goes on in the school system there sent an e-mail message out yesterday morning saying that Jerry Weast is in Northern Ireland advising the school system there. They are asking why he isn't in his office in Montgomery County doing his job.
They provided a video of him being interviewed as an education expert on the Belfast evening news as proof. County taxpayers are not footing the bill for the trip, says a Montgomery County spokesman. The Northern Ireland government is paying for the weeklong trip.
In any event, I thought readers might be interested in the video.
