Jennifer Murray is pretty sure she will be elected to the East Millinocket School Committee on Nov. 6, but she is still hedging her bets. As the only unopposed candidate running for office in East Millinocket, Medway and Millinocket, she has only to worry about write-in candidates, she said. “I …

    In reply to nomorestanley:

    You already have two CURRENT board members who are for consolidation. They will say so willingly to the right crowd. It’s been discussed in the schoolyard for a few years now and occasionally the grocery store… Are you going to reply with a personal attack on them also? Maybe you should get back to work and stop wasting your employers money and time or is it our students time your wasting?

    Nomore, would the former board member’s husband be the current East Millinocket Board of selectman’s chair?

    This has nothing to do with consolidation! It has to do with the simple fact that she doesn’t find one positive thing about East Millinocket or Medway Middle.  We all need to be working to move these communities forward and better serve the students….How can she make the right positive decisions for AOS 66 when her children attend another school system.  If her children attended the system that she longs to serve then that would be another story!

    who would be the two you’re talking about?  There are two that have children in the system.  If those are the two you’d be wrong.  They are the ones pushing the school to improve the school and provide more oppurtunities to the students 9-12 and k-4.  So I don’t think they have consolidation at all on their minds.

  • First I have always been for consolidation, as long as we keep a school open in East Millinocket. Schenck should not be closed. I have never said anything different.

    Second I never claimed East Millinocket schools were not educating. My oldest graduated from Schenck High School. She was well prepared for college and is doing great there. I have NO problems with East Millinocket schools. I do, how ever, have a problem with my children attending Medway Middle School. I chose to move my youngest to Millinocket in 4th grade because I felt it would be an easier transition this year for her based on where she is academically. I didn’t realize that I needed your opinion or approval before doing what I felt was best for my child.

    Yes I have gone to Augusta and testified for school choice. I think it is a good thing and Schenck can compete! They have implemented many programs and continue to look into more.

    I might suggest if you’d like to know more that you call me, my number is in the book or we can do coffee.

    Have a great day! =)
