Presentation on Cyberbullying in our Public Schools

 

(WBRE/WYOU-TV) Cyberbullying and your first amendment rights the topic of a program at a local college.

       A discussion was held at East Stroudsburg University about off-campus online free speech rights.

       Gerard Geiger is a Civil Rights Attorney from Stroudsburg with 30 years of Constitutional Law under his belt. 

       He spoke about how bullying has changed over the years from in school to behind a tablet, phone or computer. 

       He spoke about first amendment rights and whether a university or college can punish a student if they target a student or faculty member online even if it's off campus

"Even though the U.S. Supreme court hasn't ruled on this.  Off-campus speech can be regulated by the school.  The question is whether they have the interest in doing so and whether that's the obligation of the parents" Said Attorney Geiger

     About 50 people attended the discussion.   

     It was hosted by the East Stroudsburg  American Democracy project.

The limits to Free Speech on Campus

 

I had an engaging discussion with ESU students on April 9, 2019 about the 1st Amendment rights of public school students. We debated whether schools have a legal and/or a moral obligation to discipline cyberbullies for off-campus speech.

It was alot of fun and I was even interviewed by Channel 16 news. Thanks to Dr. Chris Brooks for the invitation!

The event was hosted by the American Democracy Project.

Join me for the Call for a Cure MS Walk on Sunday April 7

MS Walk at Shawnee

Jane Gagliardo has a compelling story about her battle with an employer who discriminated against her because she had MS. Her story was described in a book by Sherry Blackman entitled “Call to Witness.” It currently has 39 5-star reviews on Amazon and includes a description of her federal court trial before Judge Kane.

Having been in front of Judge Kane many times, Jane’s story immediately picqued my interest and I quickly ordered a copy of the book.

I met Jane this past weekend at a criminal law symposium and she mentioned to me that she had signed my nominating petition and told me about her story and her battle in the federal court system.

This coming weekend (April 7), she is sponsoring a 5k walk at Shawnee called “5k Walk for a Cure.” A portion of the proceeds benefit the Tisch MS Research Center of NY.

After the walk, Author Sherry Blackman will be a guest speaker and there is a BBQ and auction. It’s a worthwhile event and I hope everyone will join me this Sunday.

Smithfields Restaurant Week at CC of the Poconos

Restaurant Week

I enjoyed some great food last night with my family at the Restaurant Week event sponsored by Smithfield and Middle Smithfield Townships and the MST Economic Development Committee.

There was a packed house at the Whispering Pines Banquet Hall at Country Club of the Poconos that included a DJ, wine tasting by Blue Ridge Winery and beer tasting from Shawnee Craft Brewery. The Pocono Photo Club also had an exhibit.

I didn’t realize there were so many great restaurants in our area. I’ll have to check out some of those restaurants when my campaign is over.
