Dougherty BOE goes into closed session to discuss 'personnel matters'

ALBANY, Ga. — The Dougherty County Board of Education went into a closed-door session Tuesday morning to discuss personnel matters, weighing what some believe are possible names of interim superintendent candidates.

Under Georgia law, the board can hold non-public discussions to talk about personnel matters, legal matters or possible real-estate acquisitions, but any votes must be taken in public.

The board has yet to name an interim replacement for Superintendent Joshua Murfree, who will leave his post in December under a mutual agreement made between he and the board earlier this month.

LORD, please provide these folks guidance beyond their own prejudices, and allow them to really see.

This is the last lines of Dr. Murfee's Friday Inspiration sent to all DCSS employees:

"Watch who would love to be in our position. Do not be surprised as they have been our backstabbers! Have a wonderful weekend and a great Thanksgiving vacation. Dr. Murfree [Joshua] "

Who is he referring to as "backstabbers"?

Who is "WE"? (as in the use of the word "our").....could he be referring to a certain demographic? Your thoughts..........?

I think Murfree's world has two kinds of people in it.....backstabbers.....and buttkissers.
