A-C Central teacher blasts ‘bully tactics’

By Mike Kloppenburg
Star-Gazette reporter
Efforts to consolidate the A-C Central and PORTA school districts are over for the time being, but hard feelings generated leading up to the March 18 vote, in which A-C voters rejected the effort, may linger for a while. A-C teacher Carrie Jo Donnan took aim at the tactics of A-C First, a group opposed to consolidation that included members of the A-C Central board, during the March 26 meeting of the board. Donnan took issue with A-C First’s claim that the A-C Central Education Association supported the consolidation effort with PORTA only because its members would get higher wages. She called these claims and others “bully tactics.”
Donnan severely criticized a statement that appeared on an A-C first mass mailer the week before the vote which read, “Promises are like babies-easy to make but hard to deliver.” Donnan called this statement “obscene,” “inappropriate,” and “distasteful.”
