Remember when CCISD Trustee thought it was funny to play cough on a woman who was wearing a mask during a board meeting? He was swiftly called out for it and sort of apologized at the next board meeting with the typical “If I offended anyone….” crap. Here is a recap:
Bowen showed his dickness when a parent was distributing a document to each of the Trustees. She wore a mask because I believe she was being careful about COVID. As she passed by Bowen he played coughed on her then turned to Trustee Cottrell who joined him for a good laugh. It was all quite funny poking fun at a parent concerned about bringing a deadly virus back to her kids at home. Bowen just couldn’t pass up the opportunity to be a dick about everything. He did a great job.
In a recent forum Bowen had to be a dick again by referencing a former board member claiming (incorrectly) that the board member neglected the community. The previous board member, who was not part of the forum, had served 4 terms. She was re-elected to an at large position 4 times and served honorably. She had no opportunity to defend her record. It was a nothing but a cheap shot.
Bowen barely won that district after spending a record amount of money backed by the Republican Party. Bowen brought his politics into the board meetings. He has encouraged the extreme far right to attend meeting and make outrageous claims including the racist dog whistle, CRT. He has caused considerable disruption to the the board and to our education system in CCISD. He hasn’t neglected the community.
He has abused the community.
