District 3 Guilford County Board of Education member Bill Goebel has responded to the Thursday, April 13 press release from the Guilford County Republican Party.
Chairman of the Guilford County Republican Party Chris Meadows sent out a press release on April 13 stating that the Guilford County Republican Party Executive Committee continues to support Michael Logan for the District 3 seat on the board and that the committee had voted to censure Goebel, who is a Republican, for “Party disloyalty, deceiving Party leadership and circumventing the proper avenues for filling a vacancy on the Guilford County Board of Education.”
The press release also noted that after being sworn into office, Goebel “voted with the Democrats in opposition to the Equality in Education bill, HB 187, which is designed to protect the best interests of our school aged children.”
The other two Republican school board members voted against the resolution, opposing the bill, which passed the state House on a 68-49 vote with 68 Republicans voting in favor and 49 Democrats voting against.
Goebel who was unavailable for an interview did respond by text with the following statement. “I understand the frustration and feelings of my colleagues in the GOP.
“I want to stay focused on Keeping The Main Thing The Main Thing that is the youth, parents and educators in District 3.
“To that end I plan on changing my vote at the next Board [meeting] to support HB 187.
“We are fortunate to have caring and passionate citizens in Guilford County. Positive change takes dedication and a commitment to listen to everyone involved. I plan to represent the youth and families of District 3 by beginning with
“1 Changing my vote at the next board meeting supporting HB 187.
“2 Taking care of our youth is my #1 goal. During my term on the school board, I plan to visit every school across District 3 and listen to the needs of our local families, educators and students.
“3 I will continue to work hard and do this in support of parental rights.
“I ask for everyone to calm down and let me represent the District.”
Up yours to f$&king rhino. Go sleep with hunter and joe. Karma is cruel and you’ll get yours.
I don’t believe you can change your stripes. Finish the deal and switch parties since you seem to be in bed with the county democrats.
A wolf in sheep’s clothing! Fool me once, my fault, fool me twice……. You know the rest
Lol. Excellent deflection while not addressing the appropriate GOP censure Mr. Goebel. Let me interpret your response: 1. Don’t worry, I will now change my meaningless vote. 2. I’ll take care of the Kids by visiting the schools/educators and “listening to needs” of families, even though the Families (Parents) are not at the schools. 3. I will claim to have been working hard for infringed Parental rights in relation to Students at these schools, and somehow continue in this effort. 4. I will accuse people who brought forward the censure of not being Calm, and just tell them to go away and leave me alone. Parents want transparency and don’t like back-room politics, especially now.
As a member of district 3, Michael Logan is the ONLY person I would like to represent the district. Goeble needs to resign immediately! The NCGA needs to act now and pull their heads out of their behinds and stop being “friends” with this communist RINO!
Don’t be fooled. A tigers stripes don’t change.
I know nothing about Mr. Goebel. All I need to know is that he voted with the Democrates. When are Republicans planning to learn from Democrates; Democrates know that voting with Republicans is treasonous. So, Democrates do not do it. Republicans routinely break ranks.
You traitorous, self-serving, pompous a$$ ! This school board seat is all about YOU not the schoolchildren of the Communist GCS. What makes you think that you, a businessman trying to get business through GCS, would be a better board member than a former school teacher of 25 yrs from GCS that knows the school system inside and out???? NO WAY!! you probably made a back room deal with the Democrat board members because they can’t have an insider, a former school teacher, on the board – that might cause their whole charade to crumble- maybe even encourage other teachers and administrators to come forward about the fights in every school, the Low Performing status of many of the schools. You changed your vote on HB 187 because fellow Republicans are asking you to resign and you were shamed into pretending you care about the kids. You are a selfish, self serving traitor and now everyone in Guilford county snd NC knows it. You are an embarrassment to both political parties. Republicans don’t want you now and neither will Democrats because they know you’ll turn on them as well to further your own interests. . SHAME ON YOU!!!
He is pulling the city council move. Vote when you know the vote will go another way and your vote makes no difference. Political theater. Guilford County Republicans you got aced by Deena Hayes.
A libtard with a GOP membership card is as worthless as that vote.
You betrayed your party by making a deal with the devil and sold that vote for a seat on the board. Now you’re saying you will betray the devil? It’s too late once the deed was signed. Maybe Goebel and Upchurch can start a traitors club? Sounds most fitting. Sorry, but I don’t trust a snake no matter what party they claim to represent.
No more Grifters!
Is it me, or is this not what the revolutionary war was fought over? Taxation without representation. It seems to me, District 3 is taxed for the school system, but denied its chosen representative on the school board. Real American Patriots, with decedents still giving here, died right here at Guilford Courthouse. They were fighting against the very thing the current county administration is forcing on District 3. Seems pretty clear and sad that a school board would take such a stand, flying in the face of history made and memorialized right up the street from where they meet. These are the people we have entrusted to teach our children.
Only grifters pull a sketchy stunt like Goebel. Goebel has zero credibility in any aspect of life. He has destroyed his personal reputation entirely. All to steal a school board seat? That’s just sad. He must have no reputation worth defending in the first place. Goebel – I am calm – my kids have not ever stepped foot in a GCS school. They attend the best private school in the region. I care about my community so I will exert a great deal of time and effort ensuring this loser Goebel is known for being the sketch ball he is. And I’ll do it calmly. The people who know his name will in my large social circle know him as Goebel the grifter. Whitney – you aren’t off the hook either. You really went THIS low???? Disappointing is an understatement.
It’s extremely condescending for Mr. Goebel to tell us to “calm down” and let him represent us. No one in district 3 voted for him to represent us. No one..
Deena Hayes is a racist. She has been on the school board way too long. Out she should go.
Wait Hayes is racist that’s not possible black people cannot be racist I’ve heard several say that. Ask skip or hightower they will tell you I’m telling their true. Lots of sarcasm here. Lmao
