Franz speaks for himself, Mehlville Board of Education officers say

To the editor:

A recent letter was submitted to the editor by Rich Franz discussing Lindbergh Schools.

It was noted after his signature that he serves as a member of the Mehlville Board of Education. While that is true, as the officers of the Mehlville Board of Education we wanted to clarify that these are Mr. Franz’s personal comments — they do not in any way represent the board.

Our board is comprised of a diverse group of individuals who have — together — made significant strides this year in supporting the education of more than 10,500 children in our community.

We encourage community members to learn more about our work as the Mehlville school board by attending our meetings. The next board meeting is at 7 p.m. March 15 in the Administration Building, 3120 Lemay Ferry Road.

Venki Palamand, president

Larry Felton, vice president

Elaine Powers, secretary
