I want to make sure that our members are kept up to date on the latest information concerning the on-field assault of one of our members. After the San Antonio Northside ISD news conference on Tuesday, TASO issued a press release that can be found at HERE. [Read More]
While it is understandable some individuals feel TASO should be making bold statements to the news media and on social media condemning the actions of the football players, the TASO Board feels a better approach is to gather the facts and give the school district, as well as the UIL, an opportunity to follow all appropriate protocols. Perhaps most importantly, TASO, and our official who was hit, is best served when we maintain an unbiased approach during the investigation that we are required to conduct. All eyes are on how we conduct ourselves at this critical point.
Since Saturday morning I have been in close contact with our member, the crew, Northside ISD, the UIL, and law enforcement. Together we are working on gathering the facts to bring this issue to a conclusion while protecting the rights and well-being of our TASO member. This will continue until we are satisfied we have a fair and truthful result.
I am proud to know that all 14,500 TASO members are standing with me.
More information to come as it develops.
