Amherst Regional School Committee "retreat" 8/14/14
So yes, I probably should have been a jerk and required the Amherst Pelham Regional School Committee to hold a special meeting just for me -- after all, fulfilling your duties to the Open Meeting Law is important no matter how trivial the detail.
Perhaps why a legal friend of mine describes me as a "strict constructionist" (well, at least most of the time). It would also have drawn more attention to the issue so that maybe even my friends in the diffident mainstream media would cover it.
The Regional School Committee went into Executive Session at their 8/26 meeting to rubber stamp generous raises for School Superintendent Maria Geryk and her new Assistant Superintendent Mike Morris.
It will be interesting to see the "discussion" minutes. I honestly wonder if any of them considered the not overly melodious message these generous raises send to the rank and file, who grudgingly get sometimes less than the rate of inflation.
