It doesn’t look like Jason Fischer is going to get his way to exclude communities potentially effected by Superintendent Viti’s proposed changes from having their say and boy is he pissed.
From the Times Union: Last week, at the monthly board meeting, board members Scott Shine and Jason Fischer voted to keep the vote in February, while four members voted to wait as late as June.
“My concern is that this is just a tactic to continue to delay things,” Fischer said.
Because it takes five votes to waive board policies and adjust the deadline, and because board Chairwoman Cheryl Grymes was absent, Shine and Fischer prevailed.
But Tuesday Grymes said she plans to ask for another vote to move the deadline back and allow for more months of public comment.
“I’m uncomfortable with moving too quickly,” she said. “It creates heartache if some people are not involved.”
Fischer, who was absent from Tuesday’s meeting, said he’ll challenge the legality of having another vote on the same issue.
If he doesn’t get his way he’s going to sue? What a baby. Thank goodness Cheryl Grymes sided with the majority of the bard and decency.
I also want to remind you that none of the proposed changes will effect schools in his district, a district he has mercifully said he will no longer represent in a year, if only it could be sooner.Once again shame on you Mandarin, you could have had Jon Heymann or Laurie Hatsel, you know people who care about our schools, instead you voted for this guy who sees the school board as a stepping stone and sadly you gave him one.
