Setting A (bad) Example
Katherine Appy, Amherst School Committee Chair
So it will be interesting to see if the venerable Daily Hampshire Gazette follows up on the recent expose published by my friends at the Republican, although they did not connect an important dot concerning Ms. Appy's role as a member of the Amherst School Committee.
You know, the elected folks who should be setting a good, positive example for the kids in a town where education is King (or Queen, as the case may be).
And of course the other consideration is how quickly would the Gazette have jumped on this if it had involved the school committee member Katherine Appy replaced?
Or what would have been the response on the Internet from Cowardly Anon Nitwits? Ms. Sanderson would have been tarred-and-feathered, and then crucified with dull, extra long, rusty nails.
