Last Friday, I was one among approximately 300 people who attended a so-called public hearing for Savy Gallo. This hearing was supposed to be held in a location large enough to handle all who showed up. Instead, the superintendent of schools pulled a fast one as usual and the location was the Thayer House conference room, a venue no larger than your average dining room.
The outpouring of love and support for Savy was overwhelming. For those of you not able to be there, the next hearing date is March 16 at 5 p.m. at a location yet to be determined; however, it must be large enough to hold all that want to come. The Hearing Officer made that perfectly clear.
The story does not end there. Channel 12 came to Glen Cove Friday afternoon and again Friday evening. Two stories appeared on the 10 p.m. news regarding the problems emanating from the superintendent's office in cooperating to provide a public hearing. The superintendent does not seem to believe in due process and as such, seems to place herself above the law. She is a very poor example of what is taught in school since she can't comprehend basic rights guaranteed in the Constitution.
On Jan. 26 there is a public Glen Cove Board of Education meeting. As a community we should all attend to question how high the legal fees are for this one particular "witch hunt." I have heard $20,000 and mounting. These are our tax dollars being misspent.
The board meeting is at Landing School at 7:30 p.m. Please attend.
