On September 7, Seattle, Washington QFOX13 news broke the story of Josh Powell’s application to join the local PTA.  Click here for the article and video, including interviews with concerned parents.

Here’s another article by Isabelle Zehnder about the story.  The consensus of online comments seems to be that while people are very concerned about Susan’s two little boys—Charlie and Braden—and very much want to welcome them at school, they do not trust Josh around their children.  Parents say they are fine with Josh walking or driving Charlie to school and even with Josh coming to school events, but they don’t want him interacting with  their children.

One of Josh’s neighbors said (quoted from QFOX13):

"I’d like for him to be able to bring his kids to school, I’d like the kids to be involved in the school as much as possible, but as for him I’d like him to stay away from the school," said Quantrell.

Though, ultimately that’ll be up to the Carson Elementary PTA.

Carson Elementary PTA President Holly Mickel gave Q13 Fox News this statement on Tuesday about Powell’s application.

"Our PTA membership is open to anyone who would like to join and is interested in helping the children of Carson Elementary reach their full potential. All of our volunteers are required to complete the background check through the School District before volunteering."       (Source: QFOX13 News)
