Is Duncan ready to save school land for school kids?

A community leader has challenged County Executive Doug Duncan to prove his commitment to save school land for school kids.

Janis Sartucci, MCCPTA Churchill Cluster Coordinator, followed up her January 4 question to Duncan (see posting below) with a formal letter and copies of letters that Duncan sent to Superintendent Jerry Weast in 2003, which initiated the Seven Locks controversy.

In her letter, she says to Duncan,

"If you are now committed to preserving school land for school children I would request that you correspond with Dr. Weast as soon as possible and rescind your original requests.

"Your rescission will allow our community to advocate for the urgent needs of our public school children without having to compete with other proposed uses for our dedicated public school land."
