You members have been elected by the people to make the difficult decisions on our behalf. Unlike the spokesperson for this private Facebook group, most parents and tax paying residents realize that you have taken an oath to act in a manner that puts the student's best interests above and before any "hidden agenda" that keeps being implied by the owner of that group.
Please realize, this private group is made up of 2000 residents that joined the group to discuss exclusively, candidates of a past election. It appears as if less than 5% of this group even have an opinion on this topic.
With that being said, I am hoping you will not let the bullying tactics, and the repeated tags posted by that page owner, where each and every BOE member is being called out one by one by name, and repeatedly put on the spot, pursued your decision on this residency vote.
Regardless of the personal opinions of the leader of this Facebook group, people will cast their votes at the next election remembering those who had the courage to do the right thing keeping the students in mind, despite the threats of never being re-elected for not falling inline with her way of thinking.
This residency requirement is an antiquated rule that limits our hiring abilities, while also excluding some highly skilled education professionals only because of their address.
