A political move
I was dismayed to read that Meghann Silverthorn was chosen for a position on the Douglas County Library Board of Trustees. Her extreme right-wing ideology was part of the destruction of the Douglas County School District until we the people decided to take back our district from Ms. Silverthorn and her friends, and rescue our schools before it was too late.
Toward the end of the article, Sean Duffy of the Board of Trustees says “...the library board has never been about politics.” Well Mr. Duffy, it is now.
County Commissioner Lora Thomas, who was part of the selection committee, said in the article, “We won’t make any apologies to the public for this board’s commitment to our conservative principles.” That’s not political?
My dismay has now turned into a fierce determination to get involved, and watch closely the decisions of Meghann Silverthorn and her extreme right-wing conservatives on the library board to make sure that what happened to the DCSD doesn’t happen to our wonderful libraries.
