Weast gets school board to praise him

Superintendent Jerry Weast succeeded in getting the Montgomery County Board of Education to pass a resolution praising him.

The Gazette calls the resolution "a pre-emptive strike of sorts for Weast."

He has been trying to build support for a new four-year contract to equal or exceed his $359,000 annual compensation.

The resolution passed 7-0, but board member Nancy Navarro, who has been at loggerheads with Weast, was not present, according to the Gazette.
