APN’s Matthew Charles Cardinale reports today that Board of Education Shawnna Hayes-Tavares – District 6 seat,
… has an arrest record and is the subject of several investigations and actions involving JC Young Middle School…
His investigation goes on to report that,
…Hayes-Tavares was arrested on August 08, 2011, by DeKalb County Police, on three charges, including giving a false name and false information to the police, a misdemeanor; driving while license suspended or revoked; and maximum limits, according to the arrests.org website.
In addition, APN has obtained a copy of several Meetings Minutes from the JC Young Middle School (JCYMS) Local School Council (LSC) Meetings raising several concerns … the LSC is preparing to take legal action against Hayes-Tavares over approximately 970 dollars in funds that Hayes-Tavares allegedly collected from parents.
The organization concluded and placed in the 2012 Minutes the following statement:
The JCYMS LSC finds that Shawnna Hayes-Tavares has broken the trust of the community at large. … [and] concludes that [she] cannot hold any positions of leadership at JCYMS.
And it appears as if there is another investigation regarding potential financial irregularities for a matter in 2013.

Arrest records, financial irregularities and, in a previous report on a different candidate [see here], a diploma mill Doctorate.
As this is a numbers oriented blog, I am happy to report that these two characters represent only 9% the current candidates.
And while I often have a problem with the inferences often contained in Mr. Cardinale’s reporting, in this case – Nicely done Matthew!
