My recent remarks to the Board of Education
Before I begin tonight with my prepared remarks on the importance of educators in New Rochelle to serve as role models for children I wanted to mention that the City of New Rochelle intends to begin televising meetings of the IDA, Planning Board and Zoning Appeals Board in the same way as the City Council - live and archived on the web.
When first raised some on the City Council expressed concern as to the cost of wiring the meeting room at Beaufort or the cost of televising each meeting. As it turned the entire annual cost turned out to be about $8,000. A small price to deliver transparency and fulfill the promise of our democracy.
I know some on this board take a perverse pride in preventing live televised coverage of Board of Education meetings (hint: Deidre Polow) but for those who reject this Anti-American and even Stalinist mentality, I would encourage you to deliver on Mr.
