I would like to thank the citizens of Loudoun County and a select few from the NAACP for providing P.A.C.T. with information/material to help us all understand what is actually going on behind the scenes at LCPS that only a few are aware of. Without you, we wouldn’t know half of what is going on, so thank you and the broader community thanks you!
It appears that the (3) teachers/staff below had a pow-wow with the NAACP Educational Committee on 11/2/2020 (this was a public meeting). After I received and watched the video a few times, I was stunned by what I heard these teachers/staff say. They are actively building a profile on each board member: allies, troublemakers, who can be easily influenced and how, how they vote, who’s on the NAACP’s side, etc. There are (3) notable examples that I was bothered by (see under “Examples” below, which can also be heard in the video) that pertain to Leslie King (this was probably the worst one), Harris Mahedavi and Ian Serotkin. I absolutely do not agree with what the NAACP is trying to do here BUT they also did not need to twist anyone’s arm to get volunteers as you can hear in the video. I also don’t particularly have a soft spot for the board members but this is just wrong.

Examples (also in the video)”
- Example #1 Leslie King was called out by Sheryl Gusman and she said: “She is easily confused and easily loses where they are during board discussions. She has a heart for SPED kids.” Then Jeniffer Crane said “Maybe she just needs someone to hold her hand and guide her in the right direction. I can frame most racial issues on a disability rights framework and speak to her that way”.
- Example #2 Jeff Morse was called out by Sheryl Gusman and she said: They intend to target Jeff by using an NAACP representative that is assigned to Ian Serotkin. This representative would be an influencer to Ian but would also be positioned to work against or subvert Jeff, again by influence
- Example #3 Harris Mahedavi was called out by Andrea Weiskopf and she said: “Harris is usually down with whatever the plan is. He needs a lot of handholding, he’s very new and very naive and can be easily swayed with misinformation. I think Harris would be amenable to anyone who says they are working with the NAACP”
