Jeff Moss: Give back your $33,000 bonus to the Beaufort County School District

0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,000!

As a result of his covertly altering the nepotism rule before his wife was hired to a top-level $90,000 a year job, Dr. Jeffrey Moss entered into a plea deal with the State Ethics Commission. He pleaded guilty to two ethics violations, was publicly reprimanded by the State Ethics Commission and ordered to pay a $3,000 fine. His actions were comically described as “inadvertent and unintentional”. Despite these transgressions, the majority on the School Board rated his performance as “proficient” by a 7 to 2 vote and rewarded him with a $33,000 bonus.

There’s no way that should have happened.  Moss needs to do the right thing and give back his bonus to the School District. This money could be put to better use in the classrooms.  His unethical behavior should not be rewarded.  What kind of message does that send to our students? Act in an unethical manner and be awarded a big payout. This makes no sense, and it is just plain wrong.
