Legislature To Honor Former East Ramapo School Board Members

Their service to the community will be recognized at Tuesday's meeting. Jo


Rockland County Legislator Joseph Meyers will honor two former members of the East Ramapo Central School District Board of Education on Tuesday, Feb. 19 at 6:30 p.m. in the legislature’s chambers.

Meyers will recognize Stephen Price and Suzanne Young-Mercer for their service to the school district and the community.  Price served on the board for 20 years and Ms. Young-Mercer was in her second three-year term when they recently resigned.  According to Meyers, their resignations stemmed from difficulties they said they were experiencing with other members of the board and the school superintendent.

In addition, 20 student musicians from Chestnut Ridge Middle School will perform at the ceremony and at the invocation portion of the county legislature's 7 p.m. meeting. Both the ceremony and the meeting are open to the public.

I don't think they should be honored for giving up. The district residents voted for them to do a job and they gave up. I know that working with the rest of the board members was difficult but now the kids have no chance aat all. EAST RAMAPO is a shambles and no one should be honored for leaving it in this condtion. Where I work we don't get rewards for trying we get rewards for results.
