Andrew McInnis – Write-in candidate for one of three four-year seats
McInnis said he supports the idea of opening the center, but is concerned about timing.
“Fall sounds like it’s far off, but making plans of that scale, it’s going to fly and it’s going to come exceptionally quick,” McInnis said. “I’m sure due diligence is being done.“
“Regardless of the time frame, there is always going to be a speed bump,” he said. “I just hope that a major chapter isn’t being overlooked… It’s a lot for everyone in the neighborhood to process. But I do love the idea. If it opens up the projected classrooms it’s a great way to move forward. I hate to hear music and arts being carried on in a hallway.”
Some parents Monday night expressed concern about busing students into Monatiquot from all over town. McInnis said that if you look at it a different way, aside from possible traffic implications, it could be a net positive. Students from different areas of town would get to meet and make friends.
“If we look at it positively it’s going to connect a lot more people,” McInnis said.
