Roberson, three others recommended school board hire supe they hired

The letter was sent Monday, a day before the Clark County School Board made Pat Skorkowsky the new district superintendent.

It came on the official stationery of state Senate Michael Roberson, but had three other lawmakers signed on, too: Speaker Marilyn Kirkpatrick, Ways and Means Chairwoman Maggie Carlton and Assistant Assembly Minority Leader Cresent Hardy.

A bipartisan, southern letter of rec! How could the school board turn them down?

Roberson tells me he only had time to obtain signatures from those three southerners, all in leadership, and did not have time to get other signatures, but surely could have.

The letter oscillates from gushing to fawning, with one paragraph beginning: "Words are inadequate to describe the qualities..."
