Julian Stolz: ‘I Take my Marching Orders From no One’

East Penn School Director Julian Stolz takes a moment at the end of the Aug. 27 meeting of the East Penn Board of School Directors to set the record straight.

A rather contentious meeting of the on Monday night ended with a soliloquy by School Director Julian Stolz in which Stolz tried to set the record straight about the motivations behind his actions as a school board member.

Stolz answered Board President Charles Ballard’s final call for new business by expressing his desire to clear the air.

“I have a statement that I wanted to make,” Stolz said, adding that he had been prompted to speak, in part, by a comment made by Director Alan Earnshaw earlier in the meeting. Earnshaw alluded to Stolz’s “interest in seeking higher political office.”

Stolz said: “Mr. Earnshaw brought it up and I have seen in the public domain – – that I am simply a Republican Party hack, along with accusations that I take my marching orders from Mr. Otto Slozer.

“I take my marching orders from no one,” Stolz added.

Stolz, a graduate of , went on to say that he has been attending East Penn School Board meetings since he was 16.

“I base my votes on common sense and on an ideological conviction for less government and lower taxes,” he said. “I just wanted to put that statement out there in the public domain.

“The last couple of meetings I have gotten very emotional and I am always the one being attacked for being against the children. I try to be a representative of the public and remain true to my personal convictions.”

During the board’s Aug. 14 meeting, Stolz was very vocal about the and the how much he “cares about the safety and welfare of the children of East Penn.”

You used Principals wrong!! (Principal is a leader or a head of something) A principle is a common truth or fundamental Law. This is main problem. Uneducated people speaking publicly about issues they have no idea about. Start by educating yourself before you attack others that are trying to educate the youth of America.

Both sides of this school board and their respective followers(and they all have them, including Ballard & Co.) are guilty of using blogs & other media sources to respond to criticism and defend their positions and dragging it into the board meetings. The example provided was only one of many that has happened in the boardroom in the past. There are no board members who are acting independently, they are all advocating on behalf of their respective followers/supporters. When all elected board members begin to act on behalf of everyone(not just those that voted for them but also those who didn't, it works both ways), only then can we believe they are acting independently.

I do not think that having a "higher education" should ever be an issue when judging someone. Going to college,or pursuing a "higher education" does not make a person better, or smarter. Only snobs think this way.

I want to profusely apologize to Mr, Otto Slozer for associating him with the Books Not Bricks Crowd. It was a total misunderstanding on my part in associating him with that group. Bob Wendt

I think it's ridiculous that the district is so cheap they want young elementary school students to walk, especially after a child was hit at a crosswalk on will creek rd back in 2011. To save what $60,000??? 60 grand is worth risking a child's safety? Not to mention the inconvenience it will be to parents who have to drive their kids, did the district take in to account if it's pouring down rain, or bitter cold?? No I think not, they care to much about paying their custodial staff $25.00 an hour than worrying children's safety. What a disgrace....
