I can’t even get my mind wrapped around these two. I thank my lucky stars we left the WCASD years ago. This is the school district that caused us to choose a charter school. Bullying, lack of basic textbooks even in elementary schools. I am glad I am no longer in this district.
The candidates to NOT vote for in the West Chester Area School District for school board are Ada Nestor and Stacey Whomsley.
Stacey Whomsley is the more stealth candidate of the two. Media reports have her working for Pfizer which I find very amusing on so many levels. But I think it is because of her career that she is the more tame of the candidates. She is obviously incredibly smart, which makes a person wonder why she would align herself with Ada Nestor aka @anonymousada on Twitter? I also think it’s pertinent to bring up that not so long ago Stacey wanted to start a charter school in WCASD called Skills for Life Charter School that was ultimately denied? As in the potential Skills for Life Charter School was missing some skills?

West Chester Area School District Denies Charter School Application
January 28, 2021 – by MyChesCo
WEST CHESTER, PA — The West Chester Area School District Board of Directors this week denied the application of Skills for Life Charter School.
“The administration has spent many hours reviewing this application to determine if it has met the four standards in the charter school law. We have found it doesn’t meet any of the four standards,” said Dr. Jim Scanlon, WCASD Superintendent.
“The application doesn’t demonstrate sustainable support from the community or how it will support comprehensive learning experiences for students. The application also fails to provide any fiscal stability to operate, nor does it serve as a model for other public schools,” continued Scanlon.
The Skills for Life Charter School application was filed on November 15, 2020, and presented to the school board via Zoom during a special hearing on December 7, 2020.
Here is the application:
So Stacey is the brains and Ada? Ada is…well….kind of ummm….cuckoo? Not quite sure how Ada Nestor and Stacey Whomsley got matched together, kind of like the Republican women odd couple, but hey, look who loves them:
File under guess you are no bunny until some bunny loves you?
There is no way to sugar coat Ada Nestor. Here:
Ada Nestor is like West Chester’s own Marjorie Taylor Greene. How quickly can YOU say no thanks?
Stacey Whomsley is probably the more dangerous of the two candidates at the end of the day because she is more on the down low and gosh just wants to help. She led a no more zoom rally in September. She is very against online learning from the media reports. She is very good at blocking people, apparently and well if you are a candidate for public office doing this should we just call you Joe Gale the girl?
Oh and so whole heartedly endorsed:
Now of course certain endorsements are like traffic studies in development plans and what are they worth except to bamboozle the masses who do no research and just literally vote how they are told, correct? And all I have seen out of the Chester County GOP seems to be desperation and they are running Trump re-treads and I have to ask is that all they’ve got?
There is a non-partisan group, Concerned WCASD Constituents, who is REALLY concerned about these candidates. It was their public posts on Facebook that made me look at these two.
I am appalled by these two women and I am noticing a political trend and political extremism is NOT dead. This is how political extremists wish to get their footholds back: by getting candidates who may or may not be qualified and I think are mostly not qualified into office from these lowly levels. And school board is a lowly political office that is more times than not a spring board to other political aspirations.
Female candidates like this make it harder for every other woman seeking elected office. It is my humble opinion with no horses in this particular race, but merely having a brain that if you want the perennially problematic West Chester Are School District to have even MORE problems, elect these two women whom in my humble opinion are not running for some purported high ideals but for some yet as not apparent personal agendas. And I am entitled to this opinion. These women stepped out into the political arena, thereby becoming public figures.
Women like Ada Nestor can quote Madeline Albright at other women in a passive aggressive guilt ploy all they want. But the truth is if women want women to be supportive, other women have to be able to believe in what it is they are selling. I do not believe in what Ada and Stacey are selling. They are the school board political odd couple to be sure, but is that who you really representing the voices of parents and students in this school district?
I won’t tell you who to vote for here, but I am telling you who I think you should NOT vote for and kick to the curb.
Over and out.
