UPDATED July 29, 2021  Dan Hockett’s Open Heart Surgery & Recovery while Jay Day Throws Him under the Bus with a Fake Scandal

UPDATE July 29, 2021:  “A court settlement … required one-time board member Jay Day to issue a letter retracting the 2017 Facebook statements.”

“The statements I [Jay Day] made in the fall of 2017 were based on second- and third-hand information rather than my direct knowledge,” [Jay] Day wrote in the letter. “Now, understanding more about how the events occurred in the summer of 2016, I recognize that the statements I made contained misleading information that either mischaracterized events and were not true.” -from The Hawk Eye newspaper dated July 29, 2021

[Original Post from September 8, 2017]

Dan, with all the plumbing, in recovery after aortic heart valve replacement surgery.

Falcon,

First I want to thank everyone for their support and well wishes as I underwent Open Heart Surgery to replace my failing Aortic Valve. Knowing that people care really helps as I spend the next few months recovering from this life changing surgery.

After spending a week in the hospital post surgery I was sent home to continue the healing process that my surgeon says will take from 3 to 6 months for a full recovery. In the mean time I am limited to lifting no more than 5-pounds per arm which prevents me from holding the camera I use to photograph our student athletes for at least a few months. If all goes well, I should be back on the sidelines with camera in hand sometime during basketball season.

So imagine my surprise when I find out I’m being used as a campaign issue by School Board Write-In Candidate Jay Day. Jay Day has been proclaiming as well as posting on his Facebook page that I was somehow involved in a “…sex club scandal cover-up.” I can only guess that this is Jay Day’s attempt to shock people in to voting for him.

Let me be clear, there was no sex club that I am aware of and certainly no scandal or cover-up. Anyone who knows me knows that I would never allow anything like that to happen. Jay Day’s “…sex club scandal cover-up” is a complete falsehood – a lie and an attack on my reputation perpetrated by a school board candidate in order to garner him a few votes on Election Day. An absolutely disgusting act.

Thank you for letting me clear the air and set the record straight.

Sincerely,

Dan Hockett – President

West Burlington School Board

UPDATE July 29, 2021:  “A court settlement reached last week delivered Nick Breuer’s long-sought vindication: It required one-time board member Jay Day to issue a letter retracting the 2017 Facebook statements.”

“The statements I [Jay Day] made in the fall of 2017 were based on second- and third-hand information rather than my direct knowledge,” [Jay] Day wrote in the letter. “Now, understanding more about how the events occurred in the summer of 2016, I recognize that the statements I made contained misleading information that either mischaracterized events and were not true.” -from The Hawk Eye newspaper dated July 29, 2021 -‘I just wanted to get my name back’: Nick Breuer finds vindication in defamation settlement

Video so Shocking China Took It Down

Footage from Tucker Carlson on Fox News showed a Chinese academic telling a room full of people the reason China and the US – between 1992 and 2016 – were able to settle all kinds of issues was because China has people at the “top of America’s core inner circle of power and influence”.
