Letters to the Editor: Thankless Job

September 27, 2018

09/26/18

I would just like to first, thank the members of the Board of Education and others that helped with this bond, and for all of their hard work. For hours upon hours, these UNPAID, VOLUNTEER, TAX PAYING Cornwall residents, worked on this bond. Countless meetings and forums asking for input from the Community, and then we can't get more than 2500 people to come out and vote???? It's almost like why should they waste their time. I was informed yesterday that it's often a comment during budget votes, that "we should reduce the salary of the Board of Education". Just one example of how misinformed people are. They make NOTHING. And don't say you aren't told this information, as there are countless ways and opportunities to obtain factual information.
So next time you doubt the intentions of your elected board of education members, remember that they do this as volunteers. They pay the same taxes as the rest of us. They may or may not have children in the school district. And yet, after all of their efforts, not only do people spew mis- information that is quite easy to disprove if you just check for yourself, but then we can't even get 2500 total votes?! There are over 3000 students in the school district. So thats at least 600 parents/guardians that did NOT vote. Shame on us! Thank you board. Honestly at this point I don't know why you bother. But I guess it's because you care! At least I know that you do.

Sincerely,

Nicole Gold
very disappointed parent
