Reporter Lucas Daprile dug deeply into the Richland 2 school board's meeting where Trustee Manning moved to get legal advice on Proviso 1.108. Read the article here.
“'The approved motion provided the authority for district leaders to...seek legal relief from (the one-year mask law) in order to protect our students and employees,' Roof said."
Manning's Motion did not say that.
I highlighted the word "received" for a reason. That's to call your attention to the revelation that the board actually got the information during the executive session, which Manning later made a Motion to obtain.
How that for deceit?
Up until reading that statement today, it had appeared to me (and, I think, to others) that Manning's motion, as approved 6-1, directed the superintendent to get information. But now it turns out that the board already had the information.
This is the right time for Holmes, McKie, Caution-Parker and Manning to resign from the board.
