Fmr. BoE Member Wayne Foote Discusses Removal On WCBC’s “Dave Norman Show”

November 18th, 2019 by WCBC Radio

Almost four weeks since the state   removed him from the Allegany County Board of Education – Wayne Foote has broken his silence with an appearance Friday morning on WCBC’s “Dave Norman Show” to discuss the situation.  The process to remove Foote began last December when the outgoing School Board notified the state.  It culminated on October 22nd with the state board voting to oust him on charges of neglect of duty and misconduct. Foote said the effort to remove him was about nothing more than politics- orchestrated by then board members Laurie Marchini, Sara Beth Bittinger and Nick Hadley- along with still serving member Tammy Fraley…


Foote said he believes former school superintendent David Cox also played a role in advocating for his removal from the board…


Foote said in some ways he feels like he has been a victim of the “me too” movement. He said his situation is not unlike some of the current issues facing President Donald Trump…


In the days following the state action, Foote told several close friends he was not interested in running for the office again- but he may be having a change of heart as he said  he won’t rule it out.  An appeal of the state decision in Circuit Court is an option for Foote- but his local attorney George “Mac” McKinley said Foote won’t be pursuing any further legal remedies.

    He rightly should be called the “little Trump” as they both act the same way. Anyone who is not with him is obviously against him. By using one of Trumps’s favorite gimmicks, the pejorative nickname, this case being the dirty four he makes the similarity even more pronounced.
    He must admire and look up to Trump as imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Just like his hero “big Trump” he can’t understand that it’s his own actions that have gotten him where he is today.

      I don’t recall that Mr. Foote ever denied any of the allegations put forth by Mrs. Marchini and others. Unlike his hero David Dennison.

    Here’s the measure of his popularity and support – only 105 dollars was raised on a GoFundMe appeal to help Wayne fight for his job, and reputation. On that, he is thinking about running again? Sure, go for it Wayne!

    Dave asks why the Teachers Association did not support him? TEACHERS have complained for years about his inappropriate remarks in classrooms. Remember the lady who was asked to let Wayne ‘approve’ her reconstructed breasts? Or he ones he called fat and poorly dressed? Teachers see what Wayne is all about.

    Sorry, Dave. You picked the wrong end of a bad horse to try and smear a dedicated individual like Mrs. Marchini.

    The entire school board was corrupt! Now Marchini, conveniently, is on the city council. Fraley needs to go next.
