“Fed Up With Tom”
And doesn’t Mr. Huss’ words ring true for 99.9% of the population of Pottstown?
We’ve been fed up with Tom Hylton for a long long time…and believe us…there are much better things we’d like to be doing that being a watchdog for his wacky tax-increasing quality of life damaging stunts.
Last night’s meeting was a long one. Our sources tell us that the best part of the meeting was at the very end, when Tom “Grandstand” Hylton announced his intention to close 10 modular units (which he plans to detail at the June 17 general board meeting – and most likely after several more Mercury infomercialatorials). His latest scheme was met with disdain and caution by several of the other board members. Michele Pargeon chided Hylton and stated that the district needs to consolidate as we can no longer sustain five elementary schools and that closing the mods would increase class sizes that are already increasing due to teaching positions lost with the budget. Polly Weand and Robert Hartman echoed those sentiments. Huss told Hylton that his plan was “all wet” and that he has done nothing thus far to help the children of the district. Huss also told Hylton that he needs to settle down and start working with the other board members.
Huss is absolutely correct. As everyone knows, there’s no “I” in team (hint hint Tom).
Since Hylton took office last year, just what, exactly, has he done to better the educational environment for our children?
Absolutely nothing. Zero. Zilch. Nada.
The only plan Tom Hylton can seem to focus on involves two things: himself and old buildings.
It’s time for Tom Hylton to put aside Tom Hylton’s personal agenda and start acting on behalf of the children and their overtaxed parents whom he was elected to represent.
