Anne Sharp: Please let me back on the Board

Voters wanted Anne Sharp off the Joplin R-8 Board of Education so badly that they voted for a man who already said he would not serve if elected.

Apparently, she didn't get the message.

Sharp has applied for Roberts' slot on the board of education and will be one of nine candidates interviewed during a special 7 p.m. board meeting Tuesday at the Administration Building.

The interviews are open to the public.

Sharp is joined by two other former board members, Jim Kimbrough, who did not seek re-election in April after serving three terms, and Ashley Micklethwaite, who was board president at the time of the tornado, before resigning when she took a job outside of Joplin.

The order of the interviews, according to the agenda is as follows:

1. Ashley Micklethwaite
2. Mary Gaarder
3. Sharock Dermott
4. Anne R. Wells
5. David Guilford
6. Jim Kimbrough
7. Marsi E. Archer, Ph.D.
8. Joseph Brown
9. Anne Sharp

The interviews will be followed by a closed session, in which legal action and personnel will be discussed, according to the agenda.

Flashback:

"The message was clear- things have to change in the Joplin R-8 School District.

Some people did not get the message. The plotting to keep control of the school district began immediately after the votes were counted and will continue when the new Board of Education is seated Tuesday night.


and

"After the seating of the new Board of Education, officers will be selected and the choice of president is critical. One of the first items of business will be setting up a procedure for filling the Lane Roberts seat until April 2016. If the vote ends up 3-3, the board president casts the deciding ballot.

While much of the early speculation centered on efforts to keep Anne Sharp on the board, that is appearing more and more unlikely, since that would be a slap in the face to the wide majority of voters who indicated they not only did not want Sharp, who has been on the board since 2000, to represent them any longer, but they were willing to vote for someone who had already said he would not serve even if elected.

It is a slap in the face to voters to put Anne Sharp on the board when voters CLEARLY did not elect her. I hope the new board president allows the people's choice stand.

Hell no! Go away Anne. We voted you off for a reason...we don't want you on the board anymore. You let Huff run our district down and act like a bully and a fool during your time. No more.

SERIOUSLY!!!? These people are ridiculously full of themselves. So much so that they look more and more idiotic all the time. If you want anew incumbent, go with Kimbrough.

I wonder how hard Huff had to beg her to throw her name in the ring?

"Marmalard" still wants to stick up for "Dean Wormer." It will not be. Good luck, you're gonna need it.

Why doesn't Sharp understand the patrons of Joplin voted her off in spite of all the money she spent to get the position. No one wants her in their faces taking pictures or anything else. Go away

Better steer clear of Ashley as well....serious mental issues there.

I feel like Anne Sharp is eventually going to be like Gloria Swanson in Sunset Boulevard, holding fake school board meetings in her home with her beloved servant, CJ Huff, each choosing the comfort of insanity over the reality of glory lost.

Now if you'll excuse me, I've got pictures of soup to select (not a diss, I actually really enjoy this form of captcha).

Thanks Randy, for showing Dr. Archer a little respect "PhD". The Globe couldn't be bothered. She is an extremely qualified candidate and would make a fabulous board member.

OMG!! If the BOE votes for Anne Sharp, clearly against the will of the voters, it's all over. How absolutely idiotic and tone deaf is she?

Please new board members you must stand strong and not put Anne Sharp back on the board. The voters DO NOT want her. We need to move forward and she won't provide that. Jim Kimbrough or Marsi Archer would be much better choices.

Or, Anne, we could let you out the door, never to return.

Ashley has mental issues? She seems so nice and normal. You never know.
Not Anne Sharp! I voted for a guy who wouldn't take the job to avoid her.
