Franklin school board members, city officials heading to court
Though the city council has not taken any stand on two 100-signature petitions from city residents — one asking for removal from office of city School Board Chair Ray Yonaitis, the other asking for the removal of Kathleen Russo, chair of the SAU 18 school board, which serves Franklin and Hill — the city is named as the respondent in the injunction.
The board is asking for a temporary order barring the council from removing board members and a permanent order to do the same.
“Fortunately, the school district was successful in defending the football coach in this prior matter,” the board said. “In large part due to the most recent NHIAA probation, the school board decided not to renew the football coach’s contract.”
“The threatened harm is irreparable because the removal of two elected officials from the school board negates and undermines the election process and will have a significant impact on the operations and voting of the remaining board and will set a dangerous precedent for the council interfering with the school board.”
