The Londonderry School Board is bringing back the Quorum discussion. From the September 25, 2012 School Board meeting

Mr. Young attended and testified a committee meeting in Concord regarding the quorum at a deliberative meeting. Mr. Greenberg also testified. They seemed to listen and were asking questions about some of the problems they have encountered in the legislation and how they might be solved. Mr. Greenberg said that if a town has voted on a form of government or part of that government the state shouldn’t be allowed to take it away. Mr. Robinson asked if the district was sued on the quorum issue on constitutional grounds. Mr. Greenberg said it was part of it but not what the issue was decided on – it was decided on the interpretation of the law which is silent on the issue. The district would like to see enabling legislation to allow it. Mr. Laferriere asked what the expected outcome for this committee is. Mr. Greenberg said the study committee will provide a report and that may be picked up as by someone who will sponsor a bill. Mr. Laferriere went to the C3 committee meeting which was covered by Mr. Corey. Mr. Clark said that he hopes Mr. Young and Mr. Greenberg will express the desire of some to encourage people to come to the meetings to make the quorum. He said a quorum is difficult to “quorumize”

Why do I get the feeling that the school board is a "runaway" government entity??
Their arrogance and comtempt for taxpayers knows no bounds.
I guess elections have consquences. Costly ones.
