Report Reply 0 replies · active 324 weeks ago +6 Vote up Vote down Just a Citizen · 324 weeks ago The commitee is not an “exclusive” group of school board approved individuals. Anyone in our community is welcome and encouraged to come to the meetings; whether to participate or to simply obtain more information. The focus is on the kids in our community and providing them with a safer, more secure learning environment.

As long as this school board is behind anything I’m always gonna think its shady and vote against it. Safe rooms are fine and I’d vote for those but not the rest of their wish list.

Â Thank you for your time on this matter and thank you for voting.Â Judi FinkÂ Co-Chair and Treasurer -Â KIDS CommitteeFollow us on Twitter.
