President Obama, Katherine Appy, Laura Kent
Well at least Amherst School Committee Chair Katherine Appy will be able to write off the wine as a campaign contribution (cheese as well). And considering the current chaos the public schools find themselves in, it's gonna take a LOT of wine to sell this $67 million dollar Mega School.
As a private individual Ms. Appy has every right to advocate for the November 8th Override question, but if a quorum of School Committee members (only two more) or three Select Board members attend the party, then it is a violation of Open Meeting Law since it has not been publicly posted. And no, this article does not count.
And you also have to wonder if tax dollars are being expended to bring in lead architect Jim LaPosta to "give us updates and answer questions."

UPDATE: As mentioned by Ms. Appy in comments this is a private gathering for like minded individuals, which rules out the vast majority of my readers. Especially the beer guzzling or wine-from-a-box crowd.
