Unfortunately, I arrived late to the meeting (had to take a family member to the hospital) and missed the first speaker. Nevertheless, the Board was just coming out of Executive Session when I arrived. The only politicos present were: Alderman Turco-Levin, Alderman Clement, and Alderman Fuentes.
During the public speaking forum, 4 speakers including myself and Alderman Clement addressed the Board. Three supported Meagher and Sophie Finn while the fourth was unclear. Alderman Clement said he was speaking for himself and Alderman Reynolds in support of keeping both schools.
Hours later, when the Board finally addressed the issue, they simply stated that the formal written report was not being delivered until the next meeting. No other discussion was had.
The next meeting of the Board will be March 16th at 6:00 p.m. at the Miller School. Hopefully, an even stronger attendance will help send a message to the Board.
