Please read today's Jersey Journal about Harrison High School's New Vice Principal.

We have had outstanding Vice Principals in recent years.Outstanding individuals with tremendous credentials in Harrison school's district as educators and coaches.Mr. Doffont,recently retired,and his predecessor Tom Carney both home grown with impeccable reputations.

Who do we hire, a political hack from Jersey City .A man who pleaded guilty to pissing on a crowd from the balcony at a Grateful Dead Trbute Band Concert in Washington DC.This was not a childish prank.He was 40 years old.This man is going to discipline our children???

He also crashed and burned Create Charter School in Jersey City through mismanagement and unethical practices.First they shut down the school's sports program for using ineligible players.Then they shut the school down for among other things falsifying test scores.

They won't hire him in the school system over there but we bring him in to be our the vice Principal.

Is this the best we can do for Harrison kids???

Aren't there outstanding candidates in our school system who could do a better job?Doesn't character matter when dealing with young people or are we a dumping ground for the Hudson County political machine?Why would our Superintendent and B.O.E.expose our kids to this?

Again these aren't random accusations.These are facts.Check the article in today's Jersey Journal

These things are being done because the people who are running the show feel they are bullet proof.

How low is Harrison going to set the bar?.Someone else is getting pissed on...our kids!

What a disgrace!

Don't forget Mr. Barber, also home-grown with an impeccable reputation. He's doing a great job at Hamilton School. All the kids like him, and more importantly, look up to him. Wouldn't he have made a great addition to the high school staff? He also could have taken over the vp/ad position that was given to someone with far fewer years in the schools, but with a much more familiar last name.

The man is a hard worker and has learned a lot from his mistakes. He also has the strength to over come them and take any challenge on. Thats why he was the best possible candidate in New Jersey for a $120,000 per year assistant principal job. So he can now influence the lives of Harrison's youth one kid at a time.

Peeing on people makes him the best possible candidate in New Jersey? Really, you expect the people of Harrison to believe that? If he had taken a dump on someone would they make him a principal? The BOE should man-up and admit they made a mistake and dump this guy.

He can teach the kids how to pee on people at Grateful Dead concerts.

Guest A Parent.

I am very, very, disappointed in Mr Ron Shields for picking this man to be his assistant. All the respect that people have for you will fade with this scandal . Mr Shields Please find someone more appropriate. If you don't the morale of the school that you work so hard for will crumble into chaos. It will get to the kids, and they will laugh at any authority that is tried to be placed upon them.

Just when I thought Harrison had something to make me proud to be a resident, this has to happen. Clear things up Ron, Clear things up.

973-483-4627 - ask them how many people on the BOE that voted to hire this guy actually have kids in the system. I'm still waiting for a call back!!

Hey Changeling.... why don't you go to the town meetings and blow your horn there? Have you called anyone from our state government and disussed the issues you constantly post here and tell other people to do? Are you someone, or maybe you have a family member, who might be affected by going public and putting your name out there? Are you in the "IN CROWD"? You can jabber on here all day and nothing will ever get done. Its a Real Shame Changeling!!

Give me a break! The Jersey Journal as the source of truth? C'mon. The guy pissed off a balcony at a Grateful Dead show, not the Lincoln Center. He admitted he was drunk and blacked out!!! Also, it happened four years ago. Did he poop or piss publiclly since? E'nuff said!!!

That's quite the standard for a VP position. "Have you emptied your bladder or bowels in public lately?" "Not since 2008!" "You're hired!"

"And is a $40,000 year raise enough?"

He's perfect for the VP position. He can lead by example. In charge of discipline h can demonstrate how to get drunk and piss on folks.

Only in Harrison would he be hired. If they were goingto hire himat least hirehm at his current salary nd test him out. Put that money towards taxpayer relief.

Let's all go piss at the next town meetings the mayor and councilman get off the elevator and let seeif we can get a Job in charge of discipline. Maybe we can become police officers.

In some venues exposing your penis is a sex crime and you have to register as a sex offender. Do you want a sex offender in a one on one situation with your child? Give it up, he has to go.

Yes, he does! Have you called the superintendent's office to let him know? I have. 973-483-6400, #6. Or call the Board of Ed: 973-483-6400, #5.

Seems like a small group of narrow-minded, vengeful people have their own agenda and no matter what can be said about the matter, certain minds won't be changed.

The bottom line is that the guy was charged with a misdemeanor (simple assault) four years ago, the NJ Department of Education cleared him to continue working in education, and he worked at night school for a year in Harrison not only without a problem but also with good reviews. Nobody is mentioning his positive achievements. The VP interviewed, was offered the position, took it and deserves the benefit of the doubt. E'nuff said!!!

Yeah I would want you to teach my child: Pissing in public = sex crime???? Aristotle, Socrates and Plato are rolling in their graves with laughter. Logical you are not. Funny, maybe stupid, you are!!!

VP made what was offered him when he worked in JC. In his curreent position he worked for a dollar a year then was bumped up to his current salary. The VP salary is fair for someone with his experience and education. Let's see what he does!!!
