Let's take a quick look at some of the lineage of some of the key players WED. night. There was Debbie Walsh, head of LYNN COMMUNITY HEALTH CENTER and mother of REPRESENTATIVE STEVE WALSH (rumored to be after JUDY'S job) who spoke glowingly about DR. LATHAM. It is a good thing that DR. LATHAM has a relationship here.
I mentioned in a previous post how the good DOCTOR scored a good photo op by just happening to have a principal's meeting at the new LCH building during the GRAND OPENING. Getting your picture in the paper is a goo thing. I should know.
I do have a little problem with the problem with the fact that DEBBIE'S son STEVE employ's LSC member JOHN FORD who came to the PUBLIC HEARING not to listen or learn but with a prepared statement attacking not only the democratic process that initiated the hearing but also using graphic language to describe the actions of any LSC MEMBER who might have been in favor of wanting the best for out students.
QUID QUO PRO, PERHAPS?
Then there was RICH COWDELL, brother of JIM COWDELL, Economic Development Guy in LYNN. RICK is about to be to be the head of a new 1100 person new school where LYNN is going to have to pay 68 million dollars for. Now we only are responsible for 20% of the total cost. So that means the state is paying four times what we are. You do the math, it hurts my head.
DR. LATHAM'S tough negotiating skills that I believe COUNCILMAN CYR spoke of specifically of regarding this endeavor only got us an additional capacity of 100 students. Even with the SMALL addition, most projections present an immediate overcrowding problem.
there was KIMBERLEE POWERS, fresh off her promotion to EXECUTIVE DIRECTOT OF CURRICULUM who is I guess a COUSIN of the good DOCTOR. She would probably be available for a transfusion if the infusion of data weakens our state standing. That's the advantage of keeping it in the family.
