Hamilton: Shame On Sorensen Chair

On his Facebook page, Coeur d'Alene School Board Chairman Tom Hamilton chastizes Sorensen Magnet School fund-raising Chairman Adam Graves for criticizing trustees in an Coeur d'Alene Press op-ed piece:

Mr. Graves, had you wished the Board to be in attendance, the most certain way to accomplish that would have been to formally invite the Board as you did with several District Administrators. Knowing that formal invitations (likely printed by your firm) were mailed to several District Administrators, the Board is left to assume that your failure to extend the same invitation to the Trustees could only be an act of omission, deliberate or otherwise. Could it be that an opportunity to slander the Board was your intent all along? If so, shame on you for creating a blight out of what should be viewed as a great success for Sorensen. If the lack of a formal invitation to the Board was indeed merely an oversight, then shame on you for publically chastising the Board for what was in fact, your failure as Chairman for the fundraiser. More here.

Question: Izzit just me, or would Chairman Hamilton and appointed Trustee Brent Regan have been better served simply by saying: "Oops. Sorry for missing the fund-raiser. Congratulations on your success"?
