I pay attention, too. I've watched the board meetings for many years. If only Channel 6 would show reruns from a few years ago. The eye rolling, snarky remarks, whispering. It was disgraceful and very unprofessional and it was not Broderick or Smith. They're not "useless" board members, it's their futile attempt to rein in spending that is useless. They are both getting a bad reputation for trying to do the job they were elected to do all the while the other members are the ones who aren't doing their job. It's a joke. I remember the days when parents flooded the board room fighting for their kids education and stood up to the board and the administration for wasteful spending. Now we have a group of parents who are more concerned about pleasing the superintendent and the teachers union. I'm glad my kids were educated when New Lenox had Blue Ribbon Schools. That's what drew people to this community many years ago. This district is still riding on the coattails of those days. When is the last time District 122 had a Blue Ribbon school?<quoted text> What? Maureen and Sue have been 'respectful' when speaking during board meetings? This is like children who behave in front of their parents then bully fellow humans. Come on. Take OFF THE BLINDERS. They are awful, spending, lawyer-hungry, board members. They ridicule others, they challenge nothing. They are useless. I know and pay attention.
