Newport School District to Petition Court for New Meeting


Newport School Board

In a twist of irony, the Newport School Board had to amend the date on its motion for Superintendent Sussman to file a petition in Sullivan County Superior Court for a new election. The petition is in response to Bert Spaulding’s suit against the Newport School District and SAU 43 for not posting amended articles for public viewing, and not having the correct dollar amounts on Articles 7 and 8 on the voting ballot. School Board Chairman Leo Paquin said according to RSA 671:20 and 25 the school district clerk Robert Scott is responsible for preparing the ballot. The Superior Court rarely grants special elections and the district is still required to appear in court on April 3.
