The Keene school bureaucrats have gone all out this month in an attempt to “educate” the voters on a controversial, 20 year, $13 million bond to be used for the restructuring of five elementary schools. I’ve uncovered huge, full page adverts in both the Keene Sentinel and the Monadnock Shopper. They put together a 30sec radio ad that plays on WKBK. If you turn your adblock off, you might notice a “vote on article 1″ at the top of the Sentinel’s website. I’ve also discovered a number of campaign signs scattered throughout Keene and yesterday I received a flyer in the mail. Who’s paying for all this nonsense? The taxpayers of course. How does the district justify such an unethical use of your hard-earned money? It’s for the kids, duh. Shut up and get back in line.
A decision is expected likely next week from today’s emergency hearing at Cheshire superior court on liberty activists’ suit against the Keene school board for their allegedly illegal actions at this year’s deliberative session. The Keene Sentinel’s Kaitlyn Mulhere reports:
A judge has taken under advisement a request by four residents to find actions that took place at the Keene School District deliberative session were illegal.
Conan Salada, Darryl W. Perry, David Crawford and Eric LaRoche filed a petition against the school district last week, saying that the amendments voters approved at the session completely void their seven petition articles. Read more

The Keene Sentinel reports:
Amendments to Keene School District petition articles called illegal, suit filed
A lawsuit filed against the Keene School District argues amendments made to seven warrant articles at the district’s deliberative session earlier this month were illegal and deprived residents of the opportunity to vote.
The petitioners — Conan Salada, Darryl W. Perry, David Crawford and Eric LaRoche — requested an injunction and an expedited hearing, so the issue can be sorted out before town and school district elections on March 11.
The document states the amendments to the petitioned articles were a “creative and surreptitious attempt” to eliminate the subject matter.
In January, Salada submitted seven petition articles to the school district. Three sought to replace the school district’s proposed budget with smaller budgets, two would have reduced the school board’s power to keep and use surplus money, one aimed to take away the board’s power to state support of warrant articles on the ballot and one aimed to remove the board’s authority to appoint members to fill empty seats.

Did you miss the excruciatingly painful 6 hour deliberative session dealing with the school budget and warrant articles that will appear on the March ballot here in Keene? No problem. I cut the bulk of it down to an hour and have selected choice footage from that event highlighting the extreme lengths these bureaucrats stooped to in order to protect their ‘doomed to collapse’ 63millon dollar a year industry from any opposition.

The Keene school district served us up a big ol’ helping of suck at last week’s deliberative session. School Sucks Project’s Brett Veinotte gets pulled into our outrage as we discuss the shenanigans that took place. Later, we bring it down even further with tales of suicidal penguins and rabbits on Viagra. Oh, the Horror. Show notes at BlackSheepRising.org
During yesterday’s Keene School Board budgetary meeting the school board and the teachers showed their true colors. They care little about what the voters of Keene have to say and have little respect for the ever increasing property tax that has been inflicted upon the people who live in Keene. Conan Salada submitted multiple petition articles to the Keene School Board to be on the March ballot. Articles covered budget reductions as well as limiting the power of the school board to throw their weight around to get their way. In one exchange with school board member Ann Szot regarding the way the board rearranged the order of the articles straight out said they ordered them that way because they didn’t want them to pass. Interestingly Ann also donated money to Robin Hood of Keene for having saved her from a parking ticket recently. Read more
