Abrams says he'll keep eating till he finds something he likes

School board member Steve "Abramoff" Abrams says that just because nearly a hundred citizens turned out to testify at three public hearings against Kendale, it doesn't mean their views are valid.

"The fact that an overwhelming number of speakers come out on one side of an issue doesn’t necessarily mean that they’re right," Abrams says in the Gazette.

Abrams says he'll sift through the public commentaries until he finds an answer he likes. The Gazette quotes him as saying that the school board "needed to do a 'qualitative not quantitative' review of public comments."
