I shouldn’t have had to leave Everett. I was willing to work for $1 a year. Instead I was kicked out. Now, I’m moving on” – Dr. Omar Easy

The mayor refused to give Dr. Omar Easy a recommendation for the superintendent’s position despite being asked three times by Wayland officials, it has been revealed to the Leader Herald by city hall sources who wished to remain unnamed.
Despite the mayor’s reluctance or failure to respond, the Wayland School Committee unanimously voted to name Easy superintendent of the Wayland Public Schools.
The mayor was apparently upset with Easy’s co-sponsorship with Adrien of a Black History Month event which was publicly advertised showing photographs of Easy and Adrien.
“The mayor in failing to give Dr. Easy a recommendation, if this is, in fact, true, is a repudiation of everything Dr. Easy has worked for in his life and which he stands for,” said Councilor at Large Gerly Adrien.
She revealed she was called and asked for a recommendation by Wayland school officials.
“I gave Dr. Easy a recommendation immediately,” she told the Leader Herald.
