Prince George’s County Must say “No” to “Quid Pro Quo” And Goldson Must Resign


Past reports concerning union corruption have pointed out that “it is all too easy for racketeers to control and exploit, in part because there is no effective mechanism for policing internal union affairs. The nomination of Dr. Monica Goldson (seen on the podium second from right) was a major conflict of interest after quid pro quo involving Dr. Charlene Dukes. When we glorify impunity at the expense of integrity, a nation’s socio- fabric erodes.

Largo, (Reform Sasscer) – Prince George’s County citizens continue to confront major hurdles in its struggle against deep-rooted, longstanding corruption with ties to quid pro quo.  Many of the bills, including the famous Kirwan Commission, appear to center on “Quid Pro Quo” due to the past illegal activities with ties to Dr. Monica Goldson and her minions.  We must continue to Say “No” to these “self dealing bills” including the famous Kirwan Commission fronted by the Prince George’s County Public Schools (PGCPS) Chairman Dr. Alvin Thornton.

Dr. Alvin Thornton’s rapid ascend to power is heavily conflicted due to the union corruption. Monica Goldson makes it hard to invest in equal education for our kids by willful misconduct, money laundering, discrimination, inter alia. It should matter how much money your parents make, or what kind of mortgage they can afford in order to have a high quality education in a safe, clean school after corrupt officials have been removed.

In addition, we must advocate to change the HB1107 law to have an all elected Board due to all the misconduct going on with the current PGCPS CEO, Dr. Monica Goldson. These politicians with ties to each other are more concerned with the optics of #PrinceGeorge’sProud than just addressing the issues. You address the issues and everything else falls into place.

Quid pro quo is a Latin phrase that literally means “something for something,” or “this for that.” We use the phrase to signify an exchange of goods, services, favors, or any other kind of value. When we’re talking about multiple exchanges, we can say quid pro quos.

Misconduct in Office by Dr. William Hite Jr and Monica Goldson

Goldson engaged in well-known misconduct with Dr. William Hite Jr. during Dr. William Hite’s tenure in PGCPS. Goldson left her husband and filed for divorce due to an affair. Confirmed reports say that Dr. Monica Goldson was dating Dr. William Hite Jr when she initiated her divorce proceedings from her husband Mr. Lyndell Goldson on or around 11/03/2008. ( See Case # CAD08-32088 GOLDSON VS GOLDSON). For those who are not familiar with Dr. William Hite Jr, the corruption in Prince George’s County was fueled by him, and this blog initiated a vote of “No confidence.” Consequently, he left the county ASAP due to serious issues he was engaged in. (See Some leaders in PGCPS – Heart of the problems in Schools) Before transferring to Philly, local investigations were partially done on Dr. William Hite and issues covered up. Dr. William Hite promoted Monica Goldson before he left and was pulling the strings from afar in PGCPS for many years and still does. Dr. Hite then jumped ship out of fear of being fired and prosecuted for money laundering, willful neglect of duty inter alia. There was a $10 million bribe scheme tied to Prince George’s County Community College’s President, Dr. Charlene Dukes. Dukes was bribed by Dr. William Hite in order to advance corruption and interfere with the judgment of Josephat Mua.  

Once established in  Philadelphia School District, he has been misusing the district to advance his own personal interest at the expense of the public. Here he has been calling the shots in PGCPS from afar. This kind of willful misconduct does not advance goodwill for the people of Maryland. Prince George’s County citizenry must reject this kind of arrangement and demand proper investigations. In addition, Dr. Monica Goldson should resign as a CEO for Prince George’s County Schools. The hearing scheduled for December 17th, 2019 has suddenly been cancelled after exposing Dr. Monica Goldson’s misconduct.  (see notice of cancellation below). Read more >> Here

To many of us, our American political, social, economic entry into structures began with Town Halls where some of us asked several elected officials if they were really committed to getting corporate money out of American political, social, economic contexts and to stop the interference of the officials in the local court system. Several corrupt politicians comfortably stated they will continue the illegal practice including to take corporate PAC money and even admitted the corrupt influence it has.

Many of us refuse to let any politician become so comfortable that they willingly indulge into pay-to-play politics. That is not how democracy works.

Our American political, social, economic frameworks have been corrupted by billionaires and politicians who are beholden to corporate interests. We must continue to bring a new generation of leadership to Maryland, but we can’t without you joining forces in this endeavor.

In the meantime, there are three bills your county delegation are attempting to put forth as legislation that many in the community do not believe will positively help Prince George’s county. Many of these bills appear to advance the “quid pro quos” of various situation and liquor consumption.

The analysis came from the wonderful Tamara Brown, she breaks down three bills that are NOT good for our community. We Thank, Tamara Brown, for sharing this with us.

She writes:

“It’s interesting that my Maryland state representatives have flooded my in-box with invitations to attend their fundraising events, but not a single one of them bothered to inform me/us that they were holding their annual public hearing on pre-filed bills affecting Prince George’s County.  I had to search the House Delegation’s website to review the bills and notify you of the next week’s hearing.

Although I think this responsibility lies with our elected officials (not me), here’s my synopsis of some of the proposed 2020 bills that have been pre-filed:

PG 407-20 Repealing Ethics Reform Laws –  Although Del. Davis’ bill failed in the Senate last year, he is reintroducing the bill this year to allow developers to directly contribute to the campaigns of the County Executive and her slate, including County Council members who have the direct authority to hear and decide all zoning matters.  He wants to repeal the safeguards put in place after the Johnson administration.  Because we need to keep developer money of our local election and continue to support public financing of local candidates,  I OPPOSE this bill again this year.

PG 304-20 Extending Family Entertainment Liquor Licenses to 2 a.m. – When I think of family, I think of all ages, especially those under the legal drinking age of 21.  I’m not so certain how Family Entertainment Liquor Licenses are used, but selling liquor where under aged children are present is already harm enough extending it past the current law’s time of midnight does more harm than good in my opinion.  Therefore, I OPPOSE this bill.  There are other liquor license-related bills that I do support like PG 301-20 that are worth supporting.

PG/MC 101-20 Amendments of Development Applications – Boy, this bill is full of legalese and certainly written by developers’ attorneys and lobbyists.  What arrested my attention is that the developers will be given three (3) times to amend an incomplete application and after the third time if the application is still not complete, the Planning staff must accept the (incomplete) application or act on it in 60 days.  Look, if the application is not correct after three failed attempts, it should be dismissed out right (3 strikes and you’re out).  Geez, I OPPOSE this bill.

Finally, the public hearing will be:

This Wednesday, December 11, 2019 at 6:30 p.m. at the Prince George’s Community College Center for Performing Arts, Black Box Theater

301 Largo Road, Upper Marlboro, MD.

To register to speak, you must do so in-person between 5-6 p.m.

Please join me in attendance or at a minimum call, email or write your elected representatives and state officials including your Senators to voice your opinion on these and any other bills that will be introduced in 2020 General Assembly Session, which begins next month.

Dr. Monica Goldson, Dr. William Hite Jr., and Dr. Charlene Dukes have been corrupt officials in our school districts for way too long. Their actions and misconducts have consistently proven this. We need to take these people aside and conduct investigations into their actions which include interference of the officials in the local court system.

The American legal court system is supposed to address various grievances without fear or favor and it’s supposed to interpret the laws of the land to reduce the reality or appearance of corruption in American political, social, economic frameworks. In recent years, however, this regulatory regime has lent corruption a legal structure in which to flourish.

Also, any money associated with Kirwan Commission needs to be confiscated until an investigation on the the commission has taken place due to Dr. Alvin Thorton’s dealings with the corrupt union officials and the executive led by Dr. Goldson. These problems have persisted for far too long. It is time for someone to put their foot down and end the bias, blatant racism, discrimination, and corruption. People need to be aware of the public corruption with ties to some corrupt appointed and some elected officials in order to get these corrupt officials out in 2020 and beyond. Every official who has been silent when this poisoned chalice continues in the only majority black county by racist administrators without taking any action, needs to be voted out in 2020. Enough is enough!

Call your local elected representatives and state officials. Demand answers ASAP on PGCPS willful misconduct led by Dr. Monica Goldson, Dr. William Hite Jr.,  Dr. Charlene Dukes, PGCEA, MSEA, AFSCME International and ASASP Union. Tell them that, the public corruption currently in progress in Prince George’s County must end ASAP! Demand corrective actions immediately. #Resist #PrinceGeorge’sProud #VotethemOut #DrMonicaGoldsonResign 

(See attachment or the opinion of the administrative law judge, which Dr. Charlene Dukes was bribed to reverse)

Dr. Alvin Thornton is facilitating the worst misconduct in the history of the Prince George’s county public schools dealing with senior officials under his watch who engaged in willful misconduct. He needs to resign at the earliest opportunity before he is arrested.  #DespotsMustFall

Find Truth, for Truth, will set you free!

Many Thanks to our Delegates, Senators.

Maryland State House Dome


We want to take this moment to thank the members of the Maryland House and Senate Delegations for delivering incredible legislative success for residents of the Prince George’s County and especially with HB 1107 for PGCPS. We especially thank our Prince George’s County delegation and Senators who sponsored and supported this bill. Thank you very much for a job well done.

Governor O’Malley signed Maryland House of Delegates Bill 1107 into law on April 9, 2013. HB 1107, which goes into effect on June 1, 2013, enables County Executive Rushern L. Baker III to select the next Superintendent who, pursuant to the legislation, will hereafter be referred to as the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the PGCPS. In addition, the County Executive will select the Chair and Vice Chair of the Board of Education. The legislation also authorizes the County Executive to appoint three members to the Board of Education and the County Council will make one appointment. The legislation authorizes the Governor to appoint a three member search committee for the CEO. The County Executive will select the new CEO from the three finalists recommended to him by the search committee. In coming weeks, the County Executive will work with the Board of Education and the County Council to implement this new school governance structure.

As a Movement for Prince George’s County who advocated for the changes, all we can say is that, we are thrilled! In the coming weeks and months, we will work closely with County executive Baker to make things happen and create successful transformation and accountability. We also would like to thank other comrades and anyone else who might have supported the bill by calling their elected officials in Annapolis etc. All we can say is, “Thank you”.  Victory goes to all students, staff and families of PG county.

Once again, Cheers to the Prince George’s County House, Senate Delegations, County Executive Rushern L. Baker III and Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley for signing bill HB 1107 into law, Kudos!

“We believe that America’s prosperity must rest upon the broad shoulders of a rising middle class……  We are true to our creed when a little girl born into the bleakest poverty knows that she has the same chance to succeed as anybody else, because she is an American; she is free, and she is equal, not just in the eyes of God but also in our own.”

— Barack Obama, Second Inaugural Address, January 21, 2013


Daily fights and bullying in many schools within PGCPS system is a clear demonstration of Dr. william  Hite’s failed leadership. Click some of the highlights below to view for yourselves. Many PG citizens are not aware of these many brutal fights affecting citizens and there are more.  Students and staff are hurting and getting a very bad deal under superintendent William Hite who drives around in a white SUV at the expense of the PG residents deserve zero of these benefits.

We need to create a safe and orderly environment for our students and staff in the PGCPS schools. Furthermore, we should restore the “Children come first” motto before electing a new Supritendent.  Dr. William Hite Jr should resign immediately without delay.  (William Hite Jr  EdD is pictured below).  Sign the petition~> Here

Sasscer scandal.

The announcement that Prince George’s County Public Schools (PGCPS) received National recognition for excellence in financial reporting is suspicious ploy. We truly believe it is a clever move to boost Superintendent William Hite’s ego in order to dupe the citizens of Prince George’s County.  Only the devil knows why this information is being released now!  We are sure that Dr. William Hite Jr. and his gang is involved in professional misconduct, corruption and nepotism.  By creating these many clever moves at a time when we are demanding for accountability, he is trying to fool citizens in order to hold on to power. These aspects will never fly with any keen observer.

Financial mismanagement and lack of accountability and transparency has been his trademark to date!  Besides the corruption, many employees, stake holders and citizens of Prince George’s County are astounded by the many lawsuits brought up against the county public schools recently during his tenure. This is unprecedented in the History of PGCPS and it definitely shows there are problems within the school system.  Read the story here by the Gazette Newspaper. Another story here by Washington post.

Anyone who has been following the initial  blog will agree that the second announcement regarding the financial reporting award only came after 7 days after publication of the second blog.  This is problematic for parents who want to see proper reforms and tough changes in the school system in order to support students, teachers and administrators.  Once again, Dr. William Hite Jr. wants to appear that he is doing a good job and that transparency and accountability are not an issue. We disagree with him!  The problems in our school system are manmade.  We demand a reputable external audit to make a proper assessment without any interference from Superintendent Hite and his staff. We have had enough with this PGCPS mess. Superintendent Hite for the most part is either playing golf or is out in the field doing other activities that are unrelated to the education of our children. This is not fair to those who are stakeholders and citizens of Prince George’s County interested in genuine reform.  He is not a good superintendent because he is not doing the job we have hired him to do.  Besides, he likes to cover up corruption! Therefore, he should resign as soon as possible.

Before he begins to resign, a reporter or someone else needs to ask Superintendent Hite’s position on the reasons for introducing a dysfunctional online portal which is not even navigateable for the public to verify school contracts and other tenders online. Why can’t a big school system like PGCPS create an accountable and functional website, like other Districts, to show this?  Is it time we started looking for a new webmaster?  The current webmaster Mr. Max Pugh is over paid.  He makes over $100,000 and he does not seem to have the technical know how on simple areas.  We believe the use of unfair and dubious online processes without any challenge from anyone, including some Board members, is a cause for alarm.  We have confirmed claims of some Directors receiving kickbacks in certain areas. This is not fair to the children of Prince George’s County Public Schools.  The time for Dr. William Hite to go has come!


Even though we want to see greater transparency and accountability, budget transparency is not a goal in itself. If a budget is built on distorted priorities, and if it does not represent all expenditure, then there may be room for corruption even though the budget data is available. Similarly, a budget that is transparent but not accurate will make public scrutiny impossible and again provide room for corruption. Furthermore, budget transparency is only useful in combination with budget timeliness and accessibility. If data is provided too late, or if information is not made available in a reader-friendly format, the public will not be able to monitor the budget process. Finally, a transparent budget will only be useful if effectively used by the public. Transparency and participation complement each other.

Budget transparency has to be seen as one component of a broader framework of fiscal transparency and public expenditure management. Transparency should be a standard feature of a sound budget system that is built on realistic assumptions. Expenditure management should promote adherence to the budget and allow for public scrutiny. Right now, as things stand in PGCPS under William Hite Jr. EdD, this is not the case.
