BDN consolidation news

Interesting pair of articles in the BDN today, one on how the districts are “falling into line” on reorganization, the other on at least one guy’s attempt to the repeal the bill.
First, on how the districts seem to be complying without much complaint, a telling couple of lines from the piece:
“[Maine DOE spokesman] David Connerty-Marin said that while the department encountered resistance to the proposal when it first came before the Legislature, most communities have fallen in line now that it is state law. “Regardless of where they stood before the law was passed, school units and municipalities are stepping up. They are not fighting back. They may not like it, but they are working with it.”
I love that. They don’t have to like it, they just have to do it. Read the rest here.
The other article reports on a possible repeal attempt coming from Hancock County. Interesting to see where it all goes!
