Though a conscientious and caring Alton taxpayer (and parent) we are 100% with our friends and neighbors in Barnstead on this unnecessary and uncalled for JMA ‘self-aggrandizing’ fishing trip.
IF Alton is in the wrong Barnstead should sue Alton. If this ends up costing money that is the harsh price we have to pay for the ill conceived, puerile acts of our elected officials. So I hope Barnstead will explore all legal options available to them.
I hold Sandy Wyatt, the Chair of the Alton Central School (ACS) Board 100% responsible for this. IF she doesn’t have the skills, experience, know-how or common sense to Chair this board she should not have accepted the post. She should have insisted that the ACS Board get a proper legal opinion from a qualified and mature attorney BEFORE she allowed crazy talk from the board members. If this all blows up in their face I expect that at least some of them will have the decency to resign — though I doubt it.
This was so unnecessary. Another blot in the already blackened copybook of this dysfunctional, bankrupt board — that actually voted to do away with ‘Common Core‘ at ACS without even realizing what they were voting for or against.
P.S., The ACS Superintendent, as is his wont, appears to have Timed Out again. Does anybody know what the news is about the new ACS Principal. June 2 has come and gone. Nothing from William (Bill) Slander. Check his ‘blander’ blog. Last update May 23.
