During closing comments last night, James Manning said, "Sometimes our board has split votes on issues."
Whom is he kidding?
Sometimes? If you went back over the past year and reviewed the votes, you will see an amazing number of 4-3 votes, with The Core Four voting as a bloc and The Minority Three (Agostini, Scott, McFadden) being out-voted.
It's not "sometimes". The Four have stuck together like Elmer's Glue. They will say they are voting independently but, when you look at the issues (as Manning calls them), there are many times when The Three chose the side of reason and student-centered interest, and The Four did not.
At least, one of The Four should have sided with Reason. And did not.
