2014 merger study should have been 'discarded'

The article, "Unit 1, 3 residents have their say on consolidation" (Oct. 24 Daily News), gave incorrect information on what I said. It is true that I was on the Committee of Ten in 2002. However, the information I used was from the more recent feasibility study, the one presented in 2014, when I was a member of the Palestine Unit 3 Board of Education.
