When did the BOARD vote to give you the authority to do what you are threatening?

Section 642:1

 642:1 Obstructing Government Administration. –
I. A person is guilty of a misdemeanor if that person uses intimidation, actual or threatened force or violence, simulated legal process, or engages in any other unlawful conduct with a purpose to hinder or interfere with a public servant, as defined in RSA 640:2, II, performing or purporting to perform an official function or to retaliate for the performance or purported performance of such a function.

In the future, if you continue to be unable to control yourself, please do not copy or write directly to district personnel. Doing so once more will cause me to tell them to send your notes straight to Trash.

Why on earth should this not simply be forthcoming?
The BOARD is expected to vote on this at tomorrow’s meeting.  I’m requesting the information I need to give an informed vote.
If the board votes to get the information I am requesting, would you then delay asking for a vote on the default until we’ve all had a chance to review the information?  Or are you setting the board up to look like irresponsible zombies?
I heard Dr. Metzler say in the SAU office yesterday, “If it doesn’t exist, don’t give it to her.”
Are you saying the information I want does exist, but you won’t give it to me before tomorrow’s meeting?
I genuinely want an answer to that question because there are a few selectmen who aren’t going to be happy if the answer is yes.

I will be asking if the BOARD requires such a document for their review. If the BOARD requires it, then it will be provided.

Dear Mr. Bealo and Dr. Metzler:

The school board is being required to revisit the default budget at the Dec. 15 school board meeting as indicated in this email sent by SAU55 personnel Mrs. Belcher on Dec. 8:

Hello Board members,

Please be advised that upon review of the approved default budget after Tuesday’s meeting, a technical error was found in that the $40,000 for the sound study at the PAC should have been removed from the 2017-18 proposed budget; not the default budget.

Chairman Bealo will allow for board action at the December 15th board meeting under the budget update agenda item to rectify this error. The correct default budget number should be: $71,559,011.

Thank you,


Since school board members are charged by the law to study, review and determine to be correct the default budget and so declare under penalty of perjury, I am demanding the default budget in all detail by line item ( function/object code) be delivered to me via email no later than 4 pm today, Dec. 14, 2016.

This is my fifth request for this information.  My previous efforts are listed as follows:

  • email to you, Dr. Metzler and Mrs. Belcher dated Dec. 11
  • email to you dated Dec. 12
  • phone message to George Stokinger Dec 12
  • visit to SAU office Dec. 13 at 1:45 pm where Mr. Stokinger denied my request in person

The summarized changes as presented to the board at the Dec. 5th meeting show that we have not fulfilled our legal obligations under RSA 40:13, IX b and I have no intention of compounding this failure to comply with the law at the Dec. 15 meeting.

I want to be perfectly clear that I expect you to provide me with this information without delay or excuse by email by 4 pm today. I will take your failure to do so as obstruction of my elected duties to the people of Sandown.

Needless to say, the information I have been trying so very hard to obtain has not been forthcoming.  I filed yet another Right to Know requested yesterday afternoon.  Same old.  Same old.  Reassuring, isn’t it, that your tax dollars are being safeguarded by Mr. Bealo and our SAU.

  1. Tired of this

    His familiar and convenient tactic.

  2. Remember

    Dear Mr. Bealo, and Mr. Metzler, The information being requested is PUBLIC INFORMATION!!! You have no legal right to withhold it from anyone, let alone an SB member. Further, If ANY MEMBER of the SB or BudCom asks for information of this type, whether the board votes to receive it or not, you STILL have no legal right to withhold it.

    What have you to hide?

    WHY must you break the law, to withhold information from the people who pay for the creation of this very info? Your timeworn tactic of forcing private citizens to go to Court, spending their own time and money to force you to obey the law is reprehensible.

    I, for one, am appalled at the renegade lawlessness of this admin, and it’s mindless automatons on the SB.
