Letter to the Editor: Setting the record straight

I would like to set the record straight on a statement that was made at the Democratic Committee candidate forum on Monday night. Ward 1 candidate William O’Shea said that the School Committee had opted for two schools which doubled the cost of the project.

He was wrong, the Massachusetts School Building Authority, which reimburses 80 percent of school construction cost, told us that we had to have two schools. We could have opted to refuse the financial support, but didn’t think it would be prudent.
