A Clear & Egregious Violation
I've seen and complained about many an Open Meeting Violation over the past 25 years but this one takes the cake.
For a quorum of School Committee members to not only deliberate but outright scheme to get their way is beyond the pale. Especially when their endgame will cost taxpayers tens of millions of dollars for a concept they do not particularly like.
What kind of an example does that set for the children of Amherst when elected pubic officials flagrantly violate the law to win? Although, since they cheated and still lost, it does reaffirm my Irish mother's motto, "Cheaters never prosper."
I hate to think what further violations are taking place now that the Mega School question will be voted on for a fourth time at the March 28th town election.
