School Committee member Jackie Doherty has opted to take her medicine in a public meeting:Tonight, 6:30 at the Rogers School.
If you can’t attend, stay tuned.
Update, 19:10: Quick meeting. Seemed relaxed, but I wasn’t in the hot seat. I did record it on my cellie, but I’m not sure how to get the video off of the phone. Derp They call the meeting to order. Jackie Doherty read a prepared statement. Basically an apology with caveats. I’m sure she IS sorry, but there was a whole “The Devil made me do it” twist.
Leary, Conway and Laraba made short remarks. Leary effectively cautioned the danger of these sorts of actions, but offered forgiveness. Laraba was more … stern. She seemed to be driving home the severity of this and breaches, in general. Not pleasant, but I’d say necessary. This wasn’t a whitewash. Conway urged the Committee to move forward and forge ahead with the contract negotiations.
There were several members of the public there, including Bob Gignac and Kim Scott. Union leadership, as well as an assortment of others that seemed normal in the room. If that means anything.
The Sun’s Jen Myers was there, so look for something on this evening from her. How’s that for some sick blog/tradmed liasing, Jen?
