School plan decision was unanimous choice

To the Editor,

Re: Election onslaught set to get going, Wright Turn, Oct. 8.

Mitch Wright should remember that the vote to kill the old facility plan was unanimous.

Even its supporters seem to have faced the fact that the devil buried in its details could not be ignored.

That plan was financially, as well as educationally, unsound, and all nine trustees quite rightly voted not to let it proceed.

Unfortunately, simplistic slogans (“we could have had millions of dollars spent on a new school”) are easier to understand than serious flaws buried under layers of financial data.

We have the current board to thank for bringing those flaws to light and voting accordingly.

It would be helpful if this newspaper chose to re-examine the evidence and let those facts see the light of day instead of repeating tired and discredited myths.
