Board member urges Hooksett residents to fight Pinkerton school deal
"I do not support the current contract. It removes all competition with surrounding high schools for Hooksett families," Lyscars said. He added: "I think Pinkerton is a wonderful school, I just don't want restrictions in the contract. I think that with no restrictions Pinkerton would find out it's the best thing they could do because people would want to go there instead of feeling forced."
"This item is on the warrant article for the voters to decide in March; that is how contracts work," Korkosz said. "A petition would be redundant. The voters are deciding this anyway."
"My feeling is that we are headed for the ultimate petition, and that is the warrant article," Peal said.
Pearl added that even if a petition were to receive 1,000 signatures, he doubts it would change the minds of any School Board member.
