Town Moderator Steve Perry didn’t use his gavel. The crowd didn’t bring their pitchforks. All in all, It was a lively but pretty tame night.
Here’s what went down.
The School board reiterated that CRT has not been taught and will never be taught in the Litchfield School District. The board chair, Tina Harrison and Supt. Mike Jette both accepted blame for the lack of vetting the materials associated with the “Message of Unity”. Including a resource about Defunding Police. (With LPD in attendance) The Board said they do not support defunding police.
Most of the speakers were asking for more transparency and more accountability. Some felt the CRT links were purposely left there.
