PGCPS (Prince George’s County Public Schools) Board of Education (BOE) lawyer (under contract), Atty. Len Luccis, was apparently caught red-handed facilitating a scheme whereby he went around to several polling sites dropping off campaign materials for Incumbent Board Members who are running for re-election this season. Luccis dropped off campaign materials for School Board District 3 Candidate, Pamela Boozer-Strothers, at a polling location in District 3. There are also reports that BOE CHAIRMAN, Dr. Segun Eubanks, was caught on camera campaigning for Vice-Chair Carolyn Boston, who is also alleged to be involved with schemes and corruption in PGCPS.
According to Prince George’s County activist, Janna Parker, Len Lucci is involved in questionable activities which are undermining democracy in Prince George’s County. In an official capacity, Mr. Lucci is said to be a principal at O’Malley, Miles, Nylen & Gilmore, PA. The firm specializes in Land Use and Zoning, Administrative Law and Government Relations.
For many years, O’Malley, Miles, Nylen & Gilmore, PA has engaged in a wide variety of schemes in which PGCPS lost money, and the firm has also collaborated with other business entities operating elsewhere to falsify transcripts involving employees’ wrongful terminations. A few weeks ago, PGCPS CHIEF OF STAFF, Christian Rhodes, circulated a memo in which he directed the PGCPS staff not to get involved in political campaign related activities. (see below)
Christian Rhodes, who formerly worked for Rushern Baker, is the Chief of Staff for Prince George’s County Public Schools and reports directly to Dr. Monica Goldson (the interim CEO).
The memo was written after Sydney Harrison, CLERK of the PRINCE GEORGE’S COUNTY CIRCUIT COURT, was in hot water after disrespecting a female volunteer at PGCPS Gwynn Park High School. However, Len Luccis (under contract with PGCPS) and Segun Eubanks (PGCPS BOE Chair) appear to be in violation of the very memo Chief of Staff Christian Rhodes wrote about.
Here is what Janna Parker wrote:
“Ssssoooo apparently- GET THIS, PGCPS Board Lawyer (under contract), Len Lucci, (the guy I referenced in my live this morning, who I physically saw dropping off campaign materials for Boston, apparently went to several polling sites dropping off campaign materials for Incumbent Board Members who are running for re-election AND dropped off campaign materials for School Board District 3 Candidate, Pamela Boozer-Strothers, at a polling place in District 3.
Now, I’m uncomfortable with a school board lawyer actively working to help an incumbent during the election cycle because it shows a lack of impartiality, BUT I am extremely uncomfortable…it is highly inappropriate for that same board lawyer [to be] actively helping and supporting the campaign of someone who was never even on the school board. How is that appropriate? Teachers, Parents, Voters! This is an example of the lack of transparency, appropriateness, and accountability from members of OUR school board in a bid to openly alter the course of voting– to “stack” the board [BOE] with who THEY want…
Ask yourself…why is the School Board itself, through various incumbent members and with board employees, fighting so hard against The TEACHER RECOMMENDED CANDIDATES- Joshua M. Thomas, Arun Puracken, Juwan Blocker and Belinda Queen to the point where they are delivering literature to poll sites to incumbents running for re-election AND candidates that have never served on the board? I have nothing against the people running against the aforementioned candidates in District 2 and 3, but I would like for there to be propriety on all sides.
Go ahead and call your opponents out if you feel like their behaviors are shady and inappropriate… I got no issues with that because everyone should be accountable for their actions, but also acknowledge your own [inappropriate actions].
Thank you to Wala Blegay for providing more clarity: Len Lucci does not actually work for the government. He works for a law firm which does lobbying. He is probably on contract…Len is involved in a lot of campaigns because of his political involvement. The memo about school board employees wouldn’t apply to him because he’s not an employee.”
This writer’s opinion is the CORRUPT SUPPORT the CORRUPT. As one author quoted from a documentary, “In a corrupt system, the corrupt are promoted.”
Corruption flows from MONTGOMERY COUNTY also where a Judge Cho there engaged in cover-ups concerning corruption in Prince George’s County. When this detailed allegation was shared with GOVERNOR Hogan about how they falsified documents in court–instead of having her punished, he promoted her to Circuit Court of Montgomery County. Can you imagine what he will do if elected for a second term?
