For those of you who couldn't attend, here is the video from Tuesday's special meeting on an allegedly campaign finance violation by Paul Gay and company concerning this ad. Let it be on record that Mr. Gay won the no-contest bid for LCSS' supplemental insurance. As he has for the last two decades, I believe. See previous articles in the Herald for reference.
Regardless of what any of us think, the school board has the governing authority to award the contract to anyone. It is OUR, mine and yours, responsibility to hold the board to contract standards and to petition them if we feel they are in error.
The State Board of Elections has the filing and is looking into it. The local BOE dismissed it due to that and two of the 3 board members had other things to say.
Before reviewing, note that Shannon Gurwitch stood up for all citizens when she "questioned" one of the members for the motion presented. As Shannon states, every citizen in our county should feel confident enough to that the local BOE would listen to every complaint. Whether the board thinks it is right or wrong. And we say Thank you, Shannon! None of us know when we may need the services of the board.
