From city Councilor Craig Minor:
The seven citizens who volunteered their time to serve on the West Side School Building Committee did the job that they were asked to do (ditto the Forestville School Building Committee). They looked at the ten sites that they were told to consider. They held meetings and listened to the public. They asked questions of the consultants and did their homework. I respect them and the democratic decision-making process, so I will support their recommendation.
I was leaning toward a different site myself, but I don't have all the information that they had and I wasn't at all of their meetings, so I'm not going to pretend that I know better than they do what's best.
