Greenlaw: “The time has come” to repeal consolidation law


As reported this past week, former State Legislator and Deer Isle/Stonington school board member Skip Greenlaw has proposed a repeal of the new school consolidation law. His letter to the state’s school boards is available here.
Key lines:
“Since the majority of our elected Senators and Representatives did not represent our views in opposition to school consolidation as expressed at the public hearing in Augusta on February 5, 2007, I hold little hope that they would be disposed to vote against future amendments to the school consolidation law. Hence, the time has come for Maine people to be heard on this issue by repealing the law through the initiated referendum process.”
It will be interesting to see what kind of response he gets…
