Tensions high in Leola

Posted: Updated:

The topic of free speech continues to be discussed in Leola. Monday night, we told you about a group of people protesting what they say is an unfair practice by the town's school board.

The group placed ribbons throughout town signaling free speech and democracy.

According to the school board's chairman, the board implemented a policy within the last year stating that if you want to be on the board's meeting agenda, you need to make a formal request ten days in advance.

"I truly believe our intent was misunderstood. It is causing some friction in the community, and I'm saddened by that," said Nathan Hoffman, the school board's chairman.

Hoffman says school board meetings are held in public not with the public, and if people want to vote for different school board members in the future they should do so.
