Haughey wakes up and finds his conscience

School board President Charles Haughey awoke at the last meeting and remarked that it makes no sense to build a big new school on the big old schoolyard at Seven Locks.

It's much better, he argued, to build the big school on the much smaller piece of land on Kendale Road.

"I could not, in good conscience, see a larger school built on the site that current[ly] serves a very small elementary school," Haughey says in the Gazette.

"Therefore I cannot vote for a solution on the existing Seven Locks site."

The usable part of the Kendale site is only 60 percent of the size of the Seven Locks campus.
