School Superintendent Jerry Hill Sues Spotsylvania County Over A Private Citizen's EMAIL!

by Dan Telvock
The Free Lance-Star Newspaper

"At 4:29 p.m. on Sept. 8, 2006, a local Republican leader fired off an e-mail to Spotsylvania Supervisor Gary Jackson.

The sender, Russ Moulton, criticized Spotsylvania school Superintendent Jerry Hill and the failed prosecution of Hill on election-law violation and obstruction of justice charges.

That e-mail is now at the center of a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit Hill filed against Spotsylvania County Thursday and his exploration of additional civil litigation."


Can you believe this guy Jerry Hill of Spotsylvania County's School System?

He says one thing out of one side of his mouth like he wants to mend fences and have the school system get along with the board of supervisors– HIS FUNDING SOURCE– and then he slaps them with a FOIA lawsuit over the content of ONE EMAIL from a PRIVATE CITIZEN to his SUPERVISOR!

This guy makes $203,000 per year and he certainly is NOT LOOKING OUT FOR CHILDREN'S EDUCATION NEEDS when he utterly destroys the relationship between the board of supervisors and the school board which EMPLOYS HILL!

WHO IS RUNNING THE SHOW AT THE SCHOOL BOARD?? IT SURE SEEMS LIKE JERRY HILL IS IN CHARGE and NOT THE PEOPLE OF SPOTSYLVANIA!

Guess who is running for Supervisor TODAY?? Jerry's TWO CRONIES:

#1 Gary Skinner in the Lee Hill District who went on Television calling Hill the "BOARD'S Leader" and "Our Leader" when Hill was for INDICTED in FEBRUARY 2006. Does he really think this? Apparently so! He's never publicly questioned anything Jerry Hill has handed down for approval!

#2 Charles Cowsert in Battlefield District- never heard of him? That's because he never did anything but VOTE YES to EVERYTHING Hill told him to! Well meaning is no excuse for being a rubber stamp for waste!

Lest we forget: "Spotsylvania School Superintendent Jerry Hill indicted on an election-law charge and obstruction of justice. Special prosecutor Matt Britton says Hill obstructed justice by directing School Board members to forward all investigative inquiries to the School Board's attorney. Britton also says Hill deleted portions of a memo that investigators asked for in a FOIA request. Hill's attorney says the redacted information was exempt from the FOIA statute."

Jerry Hill is a disaster as Superintendent. 14 of 28 schools cant make it on state tests,we spend $13,000+ per child.Fredericks burg Academy costs $11,500 and they score 200 pts higher than our children.Finally Hill was indited by a Grand Jury of 12 Spotsy citizens- not the BOS.This is nothing but a Legal stunt to recoverhis legal bills by taping the Taxpayer.He should be fired and replaced by someone to get the job done for our children.But dont get your hopes up with the "7Dwarfs" on the School Board
who Hill leads around by the nose!

I hope they fire Jerry Hill!! He's dragged our schools down in the dumps since he got here. Now he's suing the county?? for what?? Money??? That's all this man is about- more and more and more money. For HIMSELF first- the system of waste he runs second, and himself again on the side!

There is no room for people like Hill in our school leadership. He is single-handedly bankrupting our county by spending money like there's no tomorrow, and now he's suing our public leadership? For what purpose? Is he elected? when do I vote him out of office!?!?!

JErry Hill means well by asking for more money all the time from us taxpayers.He seems to do a pretty good job managing thigns to me but maybe its time we had a fresh superindendint to try some new things since our scores are going down for state money and kids aren't learning everything we teach them.It is not a money thing to me it's a spending thing and well meaning or not its MY money he's wasting with this stupid lawsuit if he wins.There are much better ways to solve a problem if the govt isn't sharing the emails.Why in the world would he care what one person says to his supervisor??? Even if he cares so much why is it worth suing people over???

Maybe Hill is finally quitting as originally promised when his INDICTED charges were dropped and this is his final black eye to the county???

I don't understand what Jerry Hill thinks he will gain by doing this. All he's doing is making already bad relationships between the school board and the supervisors even worse! This was a dumb move,but if he's quitting anyway, then I suppose he has nothing to lose by getting some revenge.

I am furious with the way Jerry Hill runs this school system!! It's like no one is watching someone steal from a store and no one is asking where the inventory is gone, but we all get told to buy more inventory every year.

Is there just no accountability any more in our school systems?

Who does he think he is!
