Are you guys just pulling my leg to start a debate? There's no director anywhere that serves an elected board that makes hiring decisions. Usually those directors get a call and someone tells them, make a spot for such and such. Think back to the history of that board. Shipley is small potatoes to the likes of Mac Warfield, Shang Greathouse Sr. and others. Seriously? You honestly think a director decides to blow his budget on hirings? I bet you think the superintendent of schools chooses when and how many teachers to hire. You probably think that the street superintendent never gets a call from an alderman to put someone to work or from the Mayor.
Hey, Wally, Brett Hull was a sissy too. LOL
Come on guys, unless you want to buy a bridge, please be serious and don't give Shipley that much credit especially based on an article in the Bad News Democrat.
