God forbid that anyone criticize the School Board

The objection of the previously mentioned letter writer to Loren Martell is that he criticized the School Board.

“…Martell stepped up to the microphone to deride members of the board. He seemed to feel that by saying the same thing over and over each month he’d convince everyone that what he was saying was true.”

The writer doesn’t state the criticism but it is this: Mr. Martell discovered that the Board was routinely hiding and perhaps not reading, mail sent to it that the Superintendent didn’t want to make public. By the way, that violated the law on public data.

I bet that if the Duluth News Tribune chose to censure letters like her’s she’d complain about it too. Or maybe she would conclude that the editors had the best interests of the community at heart by ignoring her.
