Hooksett board member challenges school talks decision
“It is not appropriate for (Pearl) to go; the board did not vote for him to go to the negotiations. It all goes back that Mr. Pearl wants to be right, not what’s best for the children of this district,” Korkosz said.
“We have a responsibility to be part of those negotiations; as an elected school board member, I intend to do that,” Pearl said.
Korkosz said she voted against Pearl’s motion for a negotiation committee because of her faith in Littlefield.
“The reason (Pearl’s motion was) voted down is because of our absolute confidence in Dr. Littlefield; he has over 30 years’ experience in school administration and has negotiated before with Pinkerton on behalf of Auburn. Mr. Pearl has a year and half experience as a school board member, and it is an administrative function to negotiate, not a school board function,” Korkosz said.
Also, before Tuesday night’s meeting, Pearl accused Korkosz of overstepping her reach by not allowing him to add an agenda item for the meeting. Meanwhile, Korkosz called Pearl a hypocrite for trying to break the rules of the board for the past two weeks over a fact sheet posted on the Internet regarding the high school sending situation.
A day after announcing that she had been hired as a substitute teacher for the Auburn and Candia School District, Korkosz said she has withdrawn from consideration for the job after being informed her potential employment constituted a violation of state rules.
