On May 3, 2017 we reported here that R2J School Board member Denise Montagu was going to resign her post and move to Boulder due to an alleged nasty divorce. Thanks to our astute readers, we also reported when her home in Loveland was offered for rent last May as evidence the report was accurate. In fact, she has been serving in the position despite no longer qualifying to sit on the board of education now for months for purely political reasons.
Unfortunately, her colleagues conspired to deny the report along with Superintendent Stan Scheer who participated in a fraud on district residents. To avoid allowing voters to choose her replacement they delayed the announcement until a date they were certain state law allows the board to appoint her replacement instead of allowing voters to decide at the next regularly scheduled general election.
We understand Montagu has claimed her timing was “personal” not “political” as a final insult to the residents of this area. Good riddance to perhaps the most obnoxious and ignorant person to ever hold local public office in Larimer County. Montagu turned school board meetings into nothing than less than Jerry Springer side shows with her shouting, insults and almost comical inability to grasp complicated subjects. An uninformed viewer may easily have mistaken her “public service” as some kind of SNL spoof.
We are told the teacher’s union (Thompson Education Association) has already found her replacement.
