School board’s public forum questioned

June 19, 2013

Time was allotted in the public forum portion of the Murray County Central School Board meeting last Tuesday night to hear comments from Steve Hartle regarding the school's public forum guidelines.

Hartle referred to the recent meeting that he requested to speak to the issue that was before the board regarding Chris Davis' football coaching position.  While the school's policy states that public participation at meetings is encouraged, Hartle said, he felt that his rights had been impeded when he was denied time to voice his opinion.  "I find it offensive for you to deny me my free speech," he said.

The policy limits commentary from the public to a three-minute period and allows for only one individual to speak for a group.  Hartle said that he was not a part of the group of several individuals who were at the meeting on behalf of Davis and that he felt his rights to free speech were denied at that meeting.
