Letter regarding BOE Meeting

June 27, 2017

To the editor,

I attended the BOE meeting on June 21st and am deeply concerned about the state of our board. To start off, they held a COW meeting (6pm) on the same night as a public meeting (scheduled for 8pm). They had student presentations at the COW and retiree presentations at the public meeting. That is a lot to get through, now add an executive session that ran longer than expected.

A lot of the books are junk, but some are classics, and a few give an introduction to an author with whom I am unfamiliar, and sometimes very pleased to find. Such is the case with ...
