Weast had bad relations with county leaders at previous job

Superintendent Jerry Weast's jihad against the Montgomery County Council is no surprise to those who know his record from before he moved to Maryland.

He had bad relations with the county leaders at his previous assignment, too.

The Washington Post reported the following on July 6, 1999:

"Voters defeated a school construction bond in 1994, and county commissioners have been tight with the purse strings in this manufacturing area, which is both the furniture and hosiery capital of the world.

"But Weast's detractors say he could have swallowed his pride, mended more fences and worked the system better to change that."
