Hooksett school board meeting turns stormy
Chairman Trisha Korkosz and Vice Chairman David Pearl accused one another of not living up to the agreement, with Pearl filing a new formal complaint against Korkosz.
For her part, Korkosz said, "at this point and time, I am walking a very fine line in this community where people want us to bury the hatchet, and the community needs that, and I am working very hard to let the past be the past, but there needs to a be an equal level of respect for everyone. (Pearl) is not living up to his end of the bargain."
Pearl, who wanted to discuss the recent settlement between Hooksett and Manchester that ended Hooksett's breach of claim against Manchester and Manchester's injunction against Hooksett, was prevented from displaying the settlement on an overhead projector after the board voted to not allow it.
Korkosz said that displaying the settlement was not the nature of her and other board member's objections, but was instead to giving Pearl carte blanche to go over the settlement without stating specifically what he wanted to discuss.
"I objected to a school official using a projector when I couldn't. When it became apparent that someone else could use it without asking, I stood up and said I am leaving the meeting, and I left," Pearl said after the meeting.
