Hooksett School Board to accept new member
Denbow, a resident of Hooksett for more than 20 years, with a daughter who recently graduated and a son still in middle school, said he is looking forward to trying to get the school moving in the right direction.
Denbow said one of the first things he will do is lean on district Superintendent Charles Littlefield for guidance.
“Someone needed to step up, and it ended up being me because I think I can help,” he said.
“I was looking for someone who would be a neutral party, someone to bring the board together, and I am hoping (Denbow) can, but at the time of the vote I choose not to support him. I think it will certainly make things quicker, because the deadlocked votes did take up time, even though I don’t think there were that many of them,” Pearl said.
“In the end it is all about compromise and getting the people’s business done.”Much of the trouble the board has endured recently, which culminated with members of the public attending last Tuesday’s meeting to voice their displeasure, Korkosz blamed on lack of experience.“We are a extremely young board, Akstin and I are oldest board members, and we have only been sitting for two years, and that is very uncommon that the veterans have only two years experience. I mean we are still learning and now we’re the leaders,” Korkosz said.
