Letter: Mudge Calls For Restoration of Original School Bus Service

School Committee member calls for emergency meeting to address bus issue.

In accordance with School Committee Policy “BE,” I am polling each member of the committee for the purpose of convening an emergency and/or a special meeting of the committee on Wednesday (Sept. 5), Thursday (Sept, 6), or Friday (Sept. 7) of this coming week to discuss and vote on the following items:

1)    Restoring bus transportation services (safety issue) to the children of  Yorktown Manner who attend , and to 

2)    Restore . 

I believe a serious safety issue has been created by discontinuing transportation services to the children of Yorktown Manor and we have adversely impacted our children’s ability to take full advantage of the many educational opportunities that are provided by our School Department.

Respectfully, I request you to provide your response, ASAP, to School Committee Secretary Laureen Berglund (with a copy to me), or by no later than 7 p.m. on Monday evening.  Please note that this is not a request to determine if you can attend this meeting, but rather to get your approval to hold /conduct this meeting.  Absent your response by Monday evening, I will request Mrs. Berglund to contact you by phone on Tuesday morning, provided we have not received a quorum vote to hold a meeting. Should a positive quorum vote be obtained, each member will be immediately contacted as to the time and place of the meeting.

Finally, please recognize I am calling for this emergency and/or open special meeting in accordance with provisions of RIGL 42-46 (OMA).

Thank You, 

Bill Mudge

Bust 13 picks up in the Annaquatucket/ Lantern Lane area. This is a serious oversight and should not be dragged into the politics of this town. It is raining today. That is a long mile and 1/2 in the rain.

Erin I will apologize for nothing. My position is that as tragic as any early death is, Roth did not contribute to the betterment of NK schools. I have stated that while he 'cared', was not evil, and a good family person. Like a lot of other people. They dont have plaques on NK public grounds, and neither should Roth.

@NKGOP Watch, you talk out of both sides of your mouth. You have stated you feel he "was not evil" yet you call him a liar, a nut, insane and the worst thing to happen to NK. You defend your hate-filled tirade as free speech, yet you criticize the late Mr. Roth for exercising his "free speech" when he called your pal Avanzato "dangerous and reckless". You feel it is fine for you to severely criticize, but if someone else does it to a "friend" of yours, they are wrong. You use these highly critical and inflammatory words and decry them as fact.

NKGOP Watch - live in the NOW - no one cares how far YOU walked to school, that's why no one indulged you in this frivilous Google Earth activity.

Avanzato generally kept controlled, worked well with others and did what she promised when she got in office. Roth campaigned against Halley to get elected, but even after Halley literally attempted to abuse Avanzato's son who was sick to get at her, Roth wrote Halley a recommendation letter. Do you REALLY think there is any comparison between the two? No memorial on public property. These people should start a Roth scholarship fund instead. In Kansas in fact.
