The following is from an e-mail describing one informed person's view of the reasons why Sharon Cox of the MCPS Board of Education (BOE) and County Executive Doug Duncan are so intent on surplusing school property and opening it to developers for subsidized housing:
Yes, they are a bunch of crooks. This is the deal, Cox wants Duncan's job, and Duncan wants Ehrlich's job, so they are "handing out" all the "dole" money they can to get it back when it comes time to run for office. Did you see the email today about the school property swap up county in Rockville? We need to get those families to join us. BOE is trying to do almost the exact same thing to them.
