New Manchester school board member not talking about lawsuit against district
Constance "Connie" Van Houten filed the suit approximately a week before the election, according to documents at Hillsborough County Superior Court. She did not indicate that she planned to file or had filed the lawsuit during her campaign for the Ward 12 school board seat.
Van Houten's attorney, John Skinner, said he was handling inquiries about the case. "We're naturally concerned about the adverse and strange media reaction to what we thought was a pretty routine matter," he said. "As far as that's concerned, I'm here to handle that, but naturally as a newly elected representative, she's available to respond to other concerns her constituents may have."
He said Van Houten only took legal action reluctantly after efforts to resolve the matter with the district did not work out.
