BY WATCHING ADAMS STAFF – 2/13/17
Antonito News declined this request and the post remains active on Facebook here.
In a November 9th, 2015 email sent to all employees, the ASU Board of Trustees assured the campus that Watching Adams publisher and then-banned former faculty member Danny Ledonne was not having his First Amendment rights infringed, stating: “Mr. Ledonne’s freedom of speech is in no way threatened. He has been given every document that he is entitled to under the law, and he continues to freely communicate his concerns through blogs and newspapers.”
Since last fall’s publication of Valley Courier Refused to Publish Critical Op-Ed, Other Publications Did, Antonito News has been posting sponsored posts from Watching Adams articles. They exchange related page statistics and correspondence from these posts with Watching Adams.
Until Dr. Gilmer’s resignation, AVPAA Doell reported to former VPAA Gilmer. Doell is noted by observers on campus as a personal friend of ASU President Beverlee McClure. Dr. Gilmer had significant relational issues with President McClure according to his statement: “The friendship which President McClure and I formed quickly and easily has unfortunately dissolved and has begun to affect the university in a negative way.”
