Seems strange to us that the Region One Administration only uses the “ALL CALL” system when it appears the budget vote is in doubt. We have been informed by people tonight that the “ALL CALL” system is in use again tonight to get out the vote. Now, this would not be a bad idea, but why is it ONLY used by the administration when there appears to be a budget vote in doubt. Why not use it to get people out at the Board Of Education meetings? Why not use it to get people out to budget hearings? Why? A simple answer…..when the administration contracts are in doubt, that is the time they use it.
There has been NO compromise by the administration, make your own “ALL CALL” and “ALL EMAIL” and get your friends and neighbors to vote NO May 31. Lets bring the administration and the board back to the negotiating table!
Remember an incident a number of years ago that reminds me of this. Proponents of a point of view on a referendum item did something similar and in doing so violated election law. The all-call system in Region One has a cost. The way I heard it there didn’t seem to be an attribution (who sponsored and paid for the message) with the message which is a violation, as I understand it, of election law. I’ve also heard that a similar and even more detailed message in a poster format has gone out of some of the schools to certain people via an e-mail message and also didn’t seem to have an attribution. If true and memory serves this may be a problem for the senders and those who authorized the message! Violation of the law is certainly a serious matter.
