The next court date for Dawn Shelley vs Roy Searles is on April 18. Spotsylvania County Commonwealth’s attorney Travis Bird will not prosecute the case. Instead, a special prosecutor out of Richmond VA will handle things. We predict that Searles will easily win the criminal case for his 4th straight court victory. Just like the civil cases brought on by Shelley, this criminal charge is frivolous.
Searles is currently undefeated at 3-0 in court cases against the far left. This includes two big wins against School board member Dawn “Jezebel” Shelley and one big win against former failed school board candidate Rich Lieberman. This all fits a pattern of the far left weaponizing the court system. Below are earlier articles covering how Searles keeps winning against Shameful Shelley.
The snack issue in Spotsylvania County schools is nothing more than a fabricated crisis for those on the left to score political points. Notice that Lorita Daniels, Nicole Cole, Rich Lieberman and others use the snack donations as a political photo-op at every opportunity. There was never a snack crisis in the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, 1990s, 2000s, and 2010s. The left wants us to pretend that Spotsylvania County has developed this unique problem in the last 6 months that no other local jurisdiction in the United States has developed.
The donation of snacks is a “want” and not a “need”. Don’t get us wrong. If you want to volunteer to donate, then go right ahead. It is your money. Do what you want. The snacks still need to be screened by the schools for liability reasons. They should not just be dropped off at random schools at random times without some orderly process in place that takes into account safety.
Let’s not pretend that there is a crisis. At the end of the day, parents are responsible for feeding their own children. Parents are fully capable of supplying their child with snacks. If a parent says that they cannot afford snacks, then we suggest that the parent make better life choices to be more financially stable instead of relying upon assistance. Furthermore, Spotsylvania County is not exactly a poor county with median household income that is higher than most areas of the state.
We know that this snack issue is a distraction to make politicians look good. Lorita Daniels wants to promote snacks to conceal her vile equity initiatives in the schools ahead of her re-election campaign. Equity platforms have proven to be very destructive in places such as Seattle. Lieberman promotes snacks because it distracts away from all the misogynistic social media posts he made over the past 12 years. He tries to remain relevant after a failed school board campaign. Cole promotes snacks because it distracts from her racist rants on social media and immature behavior at school board meetings.
At the upcoming February 13th school board meeting, there is an agenda item regarding approval of contracts for skilled trade services. Although agenda item 4.07 may look innocent, we believe that the top people in charge of the Spotsylvania County Public Schools (SCPS) Maintenance Department will use these contracts to extort the taxpayer, compromise student safety, and compromise the jobs of the current school maintenance workers.
The SCPS Director of Maintenace Shawn Hockaday and SCPS Director of Operations Kenny Forrest will have a blank check of up to $250,000 for any project they deem “as needed” per agenda item 4.07. Anyone that has the unilateral power to make decisions on huge amounts of taxpayer money without oversight is open to abuse and corruption. What is to prevent Director Hockaday from seeking to fire existing school maintenance workers in lieu of hiring a contractor?
We vehemently oppose the school board approving this request from SCPS Director of Maintenance and the SCPS Director of Operations. Is Hockaday and Forest really choosing to replace SCPS maintenance workers with outside contractors? Their plan of chaos will not help repair SCPS buildings and facility infrastructure. Their plan leaves unsafe conditions for our kids and unnecessary chaos. Maybe Hockaday’s goal is to create hostility and discontent by blaming the school board majority and superintendent for the fired maintenance staff with the illusion that the school board majority does not want the kids safe. We predict that Daniels, Cole and Shelly will approve this request so they can continue to play with the false political narrative.
This leads us to wonder how many other blank checks were requested by these directors that the public does not know about? It’s time for Spotsy parents to realize what is happening and to stop listening to the relentless untruths from Shameful Shelley, Lying Lorita, and Nasty Nicole.

There is a regular meeting of the Spotsylvania County school board on February 13. Screenshots of the agenda are below. We hope to learn answers to the following questions at this school board meeting.
Will Uncle Rich continue to push the fabricated snack crisis by feeding more children unhealthy, unsafe, sugary snacks?
Will Uncle Rich actually protest against the school division screening snacks for safety reasons?
Will Nasty Nicole use her privilege card to get extra speaking time?
Can Shameful Shelley file a restraining order against herself for the common good?
At the Monday 2/6 school board meeting, school board attorney Whitson Robinson announced that private security is legally allowed to have firearms at school board meetings.
