THE CANDOR SCHOOL BOARD VOTES TO GO AHEAD WITH MERGER WITH S-VE!
The Candor school board voted on September 19, to go forward with the merger with S-VE.
The S-VE board will no doubt do the same. Three board members
have resigned since the election in May. They have been replaced with "yes" men
for the merger. Some of them have been on the merger committee. To demonstrate how far
they will go: In the final report these people listed the loss of school colors as an
disadvantage in case of a merger, but abandoning the Spencer school and leaving Spencer
without a school was not considered a disadvantage!
The next step after both School Boards have voted for the merger
is the "straw poll vote." Candor set their vote at Dec 3rd. This will be
the first opportunity for the voters to stop this nonsense. If either of the communities
vote against it, it should be over. But with S-VEs record of ignoring the laws,
There should by law also be a third opportunity for the voters to
reject the merger.
The Candor board thus committed the Candor taxpayers to pay their
share of the 22 million that S-VE owes for the present buildings as well as the proposed 3
million additions to the Spencer High school. It makes SOO much sense to close a school a
mile away and build an addition unto an other! We are so lucky to have these high power
brains rearranging our communities!
