Trustee politicking a disgusting show

To the Editor,

Re: School trustee backtracks on refusal to take oath of office, Dec. 17.

I am disgusted by the cheap politics that Donna Allen has been playing with the school trustee elections.

Her entire position stinks of politicking run amok.

The fact of the matter is that she and her husband presided over one the province’s worst academic collapses in terms of facilities for our children. Donna and Nelson Allen have proven to be massive liabilities for the future students of our schools.

We lost an $86-million new school grant from the government. And almost immediately after this past election, she decides to resign and cost us all another $100,000.

This was total madness and thankfully all the criticism persuaded her to change her mind again.

She belongs in political oblivion after this. Which is exactly where her husband is right now.

Time is ticking until the next election, let’s just hope she gets the final boot once and for all.
