With all the commotion that night, it might have been easy to miss a few things. Luckily, Benjamin Herold was keeping track.

The SRC is a sham and need to be thoroughly investigated for nepotism and corruption. Sylvia Sims voted to keep her granddaughter's school open. Surprise, surprise her sister Quibila Devine submitted a proposal for M Hall Stanton to close & Duckery to remain open. Is it any wonder that Duckery is now off the list and Stanton put on? I wonder what family member of theirs works at or goes to Duckery. Such a sham and disgrace for the whole city. Wasting the public's time in these hearings when once again its not what you know but who you know.
