I was about to post that JBIII had been on the radio (ads) claiming that Williamstown had just built a new elementary school for $14 million which means NA could build two new elementary schools for the cost of Conte--apparently no mention that the City would be on the hook for the full $28 million--no state aid--although I think he believes that if he were Mayor he could get it

Did he include the millions in debt forgiveness by Williams College? Did he mention that the school was built on free and clear land? Did he mention that the state does not pay for land purchases, which such a school in North Adams would require? Did he mention that Williams over paid for the old school (which they turned into faculty apartments) to help offset the cost?

John's veracity is more questionable than ever. I can't believe that I ever voted for him, let alone multiple times. His dependence on the ignorance of the electorate is breathtaking.

Williams came up with two million. What does buying a school building have to do with new school as money went to the town and not school. I heard ad several times on the radio and his point was that you could build two new schools for less than Conte renovation. No land purchase needed as there is room at Greylock and at Sullivan for new building which means no land purchase. As for ignorance of voter, you should have seen them at St. Liz yesterday as most were brought t0 vote by Alcombright group to vote yes. Alcombright is famous for doing this and usually buys them lunch after they vote. Very smart on his part. Look at Ward 3 figures and guess where they came from. And I doubt you ever voted for John or for even live in North Adams.

Williams financed a large part of the project, well below market rates, and then forgave much of the debt. Was it $2million? The number $3.2million sticks in my head. There also where sweetheart land deals to help the town. Good for Williams for taking care of the kids in their own community, something a large part of North Adams feels no need to do.

As for building on the Sullivan property, it would have had to be built right next to the street, or had millions of dollars in unreimbursable land prep.

The new Greylock option is supposedly going to be resubmitted to the MSBA in the coming years. Hopefully it will go through before the existing building costs us more money than it is worth.

And, yes, I've lived in North Adams for years, have voted for John, even donated to his campaigns against Paul Babeau and Melito. Look through the records. Maybe you can figure out who I am.

Wayne, you agreed with Cardimino that pedophiles will be watching the Conte students if the school is built. Giving in to this sort of nonsense is a big part of why your side lost; because you're a bunch of idiots.

If it's so easy to pull a thread, why doesn't someone pull that stupid picture of the Mayor and his ex-wife? They have been divorced for a long time now!
