Our mayor has finally acknowledged
he's for the rezoning plan, sort of. He's actually only "supportive," which sounds weaker than all-out support, and he understands there are "feelings of things that weren't fair because of disparity" and he wants everyone to "be calm" because it's something that can be "revisited if necessary."
Why's the mayor "supportive" of the plan? Because, he says, it would save money and make better use of our school buildings. The only thing is, it wouldn't save money (there would actually be a net loss of something like $4 million a year) and, while some buildings would be closer to capacity, Hillwood High would have lots of new extra space.
Given Dean's apparent lack of understanding of the plan, it probably would be better if he kept his mouth shut.
