The newly elected chair of our local school board (Avon Maitland) happens to be the person who, in theory at least, represents our community. Well, when it came to the decision of whether to close Blyth Public School, she voted in favour of the closure.
So we really can't say that she ever represented our community. (She reportedly said afterwards that she didn't know that we wanted to keep our school. Classy response, Colleen!).
Now that she has gained this position of power, there is no telling what she might do to us.
At least she won't be able to close our school, because, thanks to her and her buddies, we don't have any schools left for her to close.
