40-50 people attended tonight's Regional School Committee meeting
So just to give you a brief idea of how tonight Regional School Committee meeting went I give you the start of the "public comment" period where newly elected RSC Chair Lawrence O'Brien went back to a policy of only 15 minutes total with 3 minutes assigned to each of five speakers.
Two very large doomsday clocks counted down the three minutes
That did not go over very well. At all.
The Public Comment period started at 7:20 PM and the "15 minutes" ended at 8:00 PM, when the Committee retreated into Executive Session but will come out in the next hour or so. Maybe.
Vera Douangmany with 20 supporters addresses committee for 3 minutes
Sonji Johnson-Anderson: "One of our own suffered great harm this year ..."
9:30 PM Activists got tired of waiting for the School Committee to come out of Executive Session so they arranged chairs in a circle and started their own "Democratic Community Gathering" in the back of the room.
