Video of LCBOE adopting resolution against school consolidation

It took the Lowndes County Board of Education less than two minutes at today’s 1PM called board meeting to adopt a resolution against school consolidation.

Here are a few excerpts, followed by the video:

Superintendent Steve Smith: As y’all are well aware, we have had numerous requests from our constituents that we adopt a stance regarding consolidation. So I think this resolution pretty much describes our position regarding consolidation.
Nobody had any comments or discussion.

So they moved and seconded. Philip Poole made the motion. I didn’t catch who seconded.

Chair Fred Davis asked for a vote indicated “by raising your hand individually and reciting your name, please.”

All of them did that. The still picture shows my school board member Fred Wetherington voting yes, same as all the others.

Chairman Fred Davis: All board members support this resolution, so I indicate this resolution has been adopted.
The crowd applauded.

Here’s the video:
