An Orange Patch reader who asked to remain anonymous, wrote this letter to us after Monday night's Amity Board of Ed meeting:
After some eloquent speaking by local parents/others and a presentation of a petition of over 100 signatures, the Amity BOE suspended rules requiring naming to go through the facilities committee and voted on naming the auditorium after Dr. Brady.
There were three votes: tie, tie, tie. After the final tie, the chairman, Bill Blake, voted to break the tie and voted affirmatively.
So it passed. The auditorium will be named for Dr. Brady.
I was not there for the actual vote. I didn't even think they would actually vote on it tonight. Sheila McCreven spoke. Also, a current member of the WBOF spoke wonderfully about how things were money-wise, before Dr. Brady came on board.
Also, a few others chimed in.
Zeoli even spoke, saying he wasn't against it...before speaking about other budget matters.
Anyway, it passed. Yahoo!!
