IISD #15: 3-Card Montie

IISD Admin Lunchroom Chatter #15

Nosher #1: Is it true that the Floundering Five are hatching a ‘Hail Mary’ election sham to install a former board member from their group back on the IISD board of trustees by short circuiting voter’s senses? Wouldn’t this scheme basically maintain the status quo and rubber stamping by the Floundering Five?

Nosher #2: Well, we will know in a few days. If everything pans out as rumored and probably being conspired, you could see Nancy Jones filing to run against Valerie Jones who has already filed. Voters would think that they would have a choice for filling this board seat. Then, at the last minute for filing, Valerie Jones would remove her name from the list and ballot. Because of the timing and deadline, a third party couldn’t enter the fray. Then, Nancy Jones walks in unopposed.

Nosher #1: What if a third party should enter the race early on?

Nosher #2: While that might complicate this devious little plot, the Floundering Five are prepared to unleash all their tired and trite ‘it’s for the kids’ rhetoric and implement a full-court press of support for Nancy Jones. It seems that the one thing the Floundering Five do not want to see in this upcoming board election is change and accountability. Okay, that was two things.

Nosher #1: I’m afraid to think about what this group would consider next! Whatever it is, you can bet that the ‘kids’ are not part of the equation.

A note from counsel: These “candid” lunchroom conversations have been injected with fabricated nouns, verbs, adjectives, conjunctions, adverbs, modifiers and maybe a few dangling participles. Mark Holbrook
