City councilor would bring back elected School Committee, sort of

The Dorchester Reporter details a proposal by City Councilor Frank Baker (Dorchester) to create a School Committee consisting of a mix of three elected members and four appointed by the mayor. The Reporter notes the proposal would need the signature of the mayor, no fan of Baker's or elected school-committee members, before going to the state legislature.

4 vs 3

By on

So the mayor appoints 4 puppets, who out-vote the 3 democratically elected committee members every time. I don't see the point.
