Nancy Jester Verbally Goes After Dunwoody City Officials Over
Dunwoody High School Trailers
Reporter: "Dunwoody Officials to Meet With DeKalb County School District Over Trailers"
The Crier: "DHS Trailers Rile Nancy Jester"

Has there ever been any elected officials who go after their constituents in the manner that Stan and Nancy Jester go after the people that they were elected to serve?  A certain person comes to mind:  Vernon Jones.

As a constituent, I am ashamed and embarrassed of the continual inexcusable behavior of these 2 elected officials.  Our community deserves better. 

The Crier article: http://www.thecrier.net/news/article_c3f1f118-23d4-11e7-b74f-4bafa2aadc87.html

From the Reporter article (Both The Crier and The Reporter articles represent the below response of Terry Nall, who bore the brunt of Jester's tirade):

 "Councilmember Terry Nall, who Jester singled out in her vocal criticism of city officials, said he was disappointed in Jester’s public “attack” against the city.

“Not since the days of former DeKalb County CEO Vernon Jones has our Dunwoody area been under attack by a sitting, elected DeKalb County official. I thought those days were behind us,” Nall said in a statement.

Dunwoody adheres to its obligations as a city. Any claim or suggestion by Commissioner Jester to the contrary is simply incorrect,” he said."

Also, I don't recall Nancy ever showing concern for the Vanderlyn trailers (which have been there for DECADES).  I don't recall Nancy ever showing concern for the ever-growing Peachtree Charter MS trailer village.  Will Nancy also go before the Chamblee City Council and blast their leadership for not intervening in the new CCHS addition?

Nah, I believe this behavior from the Jesters stems from their insistence on a Doraville high school to be built NOW.

  1. Thank you for posting. I guess I see things a bit differently. I favor more local control, rather than DCSD being able to do whatever it wishes on its property, especially when its actions have significant impacts on the community. Neither of the articles nor Mr. Nall mentioned that the City of Dunwoody was notified that trailers would be coming. If DCSD was interested in being a good neighbor they would have coordinated with the City of Dunwoody.

    I am also mystified by Mr. Nall's comment. Perhaps his response was edited, but I would have expected him to tell the public that the City was doing its due diligence with regard to the trailers. Bringing up the 'never popular' Vernon Jones seems like yelling 'squirrel!' rather than a relevant response to the situation.

    Since the construction at Dunwoody HS isn't scheduled to begin until October 2020, 3 1/2 years from now, having these trailers isn't a temporary change. So I think the City of Dunwoody should definitely have oversight for this change.

    It seems to me that Nancy Jester just asked for the City of Dunwoody to exercise its responsibilities. If ordinances and codes are not being followed, shouldn't that be identified and addressed? Hopefully this is just a tempest in a teapot, and the trailers will be installed per City of Dunwoody ordinances and codes.

  2. As I see it, Ms. Jester does not complain about the Vanderlyn trailers because that would put her friends, neighbors and supporters in danger of being redistricted to another school they might consider less desirable.

  3. Both Jesters are one in the same - who needs collaboration when you can bully your way around.

    1. I will say I had no real problem with Mike Davis until his "fake news" comment about Lenny Felgin.

  5. Nancy presents her own case that the City of Dunwoody has a “say” over what happens at DCSD owned property.

    I’m sure the school system can pull out “verbiage” as well that promotes their case that the school district has total control of its own property.

    Is Nancy suggesting that the City of Dunwoody spend untold years and monstrous legal fees in fighting DCSD?
