Thank you, John.
Not a single person (of several thousand) who have signed the Bloomfield Hills School Board of Trustee recall petitions so far participated in the charade of a "selection process" for a trustee to replace Kate Pettersen.
John Roach volunteered for the position, and his candidacy should have been validated. He represents a lot of voters and taxpayers in the BHSD.
The board simply chose Joan Berndt, "one of their own." A confirmed "vote YES" supporter and MEA retiree. The ELECTORATE may well have chosen otherwise, but we did not have that opportunity.
For his concern about public education and cost containment, and on behalf of many who are thoroughly disgusted with our school board, I'd like to thank John Roach for his time and effort. He has tried to change the unpopular direction of our school board and district to bring it into agreement with the values of the majority of taxpayers.
For years, we have begged for a "reasonable plan" to upgrade and maintain our school facilities. We want GREAT education for our students, not debt, and not elaborate buildings. Our "7-0" board, without a single independent voice, is not likely to develop one. Incumbent BHSD Trustees often describe their position as "thankless."
Try running AGAINST them.
Thanks again, John.
