Well-deserved KUDOS go to the Policy-Writing Committee of MIKE WESTON, KATHY ZARLING AND BRUCE KOENIG.
While I must admit that you could see some frustration with the situation, they were respectful, listening and open to the desires and requests of their community.
After hearing one after another opponent to the currently-written policy, this committee took the suggestions of the parents/citizens/taxpayers present and tabled the policy, promising to review the suggested Elmbrook School District policy as a model.
This is a fine example of connecting with the values and the ideals of the community who elects you. (Koenig and Weston are School Board officials.) The meeting went smoothly. Weston stayed on track and gave everyone an opportunity to speak.
