Michelle Livingston is the voice on a robo call to Sandown homes today. In her 48 second recorded message she says a “Yes” vote on Warrant Article 13 would legally obligate Sandown to form its own school District.
That is absolutely false.
The March 8th vote is a vote that says we want to form our own district but it does not create a legal obligation to do so.
A “Yes” vote sends a withdrawal plan to the NH Board of Education. If the BOE approves the plan, then and only then, will the plan go to the district for a school district-wide vote. IF that vote approves Sandown’s withdrawal, then Sandown can form its own school district.
I’ve just spent the last 1.5 hours immersed in the lies and slanders of the CAW “Roundtable” on Channel 17. These people bemoan the divisiveness of the community while slandering people who simply have a different -and to my mind better informed – opinion on this withdrawal issue. CAW’s game is to insult those who are trying to solve a very serious problem that they do not even wish to acknowledge, and do everything in their power to make sure the opposing view is not heard or given its fair due.
The numerous lies on Facebook pages shut out to the other side, the outrageous slanders in the CAW “Roundtable” on Channel 17, Mrs. Livingston’s outright lie on the robocall, all these things and many more have robbed Sandown of a fair and informed vote on withdrawal.
