In the New Hope-Solebury School Board race, winners were Democrat/Republicans Neale Dougherty, Adrienne Deussing, Sandy Heath Weisbrot and Tracy Keyes, who triumphed over the Libertarian team.

    Should be an interesting meeting for School Board next month, hen the subject of hiring Yet Another Assistant Administrator will probably be discussed. Really? In a district our size?

    Mr. Dougherty clearly stated (during a candidates forum) that we should hire one. With what money? Ms. Keyes agreed with him.

    If you’re concerned about where your tax dollars are going, please come to school board meetings, and make your voices heard!
