Center custodian pleads his case for promotion

Mark MacLochlan, head custodian at Boardman Center Middle School, wants to know why he was denied a promotion that went to his stepbrother.

“I’m here tonight,” he told board of education members at a meeting Monday, “because I’m being passed over for a promotion that I’ve worked very hard to attain, as is evident with my evaluations and my letters of recommendation. I believe that my years of service and my performance are being overlooked for some reason.”

MacLochlan has been employed by Boardman schools for 30 years, serving in his current position for 21 of those years. James Massey, director of operations, said Matt McKenzie was recommended to fill the position of supervisor of buildings and grounds because he had the skills the district was looking for.

“It was a team decision,” Massey said. “And we felt Matt was the best fit for the job.”

The board of education went into executive session to discuss the matter and ultimately voted to approve the recommendation to hire McKenzie.

“The three individuals that were most involved with the interviewing process still felt like Matt was the best recommendation based on his experience and education level,” Mark Fulks, board president, said after the meeting.

Education level? For a custodian job? I would think that 30 years of experience would trump any education!!

Typical ass kissing Boardman school board and administration. Lucky for them he doesn't have any ties to Lariccia or deep-pockest would take back his money and go home, like when they passed over his relative on a teaching position...

Let me understand this now: this man has been a'sweepin, and a'moppin' and a'cleanin' for 30 yeras and deserved to be promoted.

Sounds as though he should retire and collect his PERS pension.

As in the past, the Boardman Administration has conveniently altered to suit their desire, such as they did in the past when the assistant Superintendent position was renamed to Director of Operations position when the candidate was not qualified.
