Mathews demands citizens advisory committee
Is the west end of St. Mary Parish, especially the black community in the west end, getting a raw deal from the School Board?
St. Mary Parish Council member Craig Mathews thinks so. Mathews asked the board at its monthly meeting Thursday to form a citizens advisory committee. The committee would solicit advice from people throughout the parish and “consider those problems which vitally affect the future of our children,” according to a written statement submitted by Mathews.
The board delayed action on Mathews’ request on procedural grounds. But board President Michael Taylor said the district will prepare a review of his proposal, possibly before the March meeting.
