New Lenox School District Officials Snipe During Meetings: Report

"Harold Huang, the district’s business manager, criticized board members Maureen Broderick and Sue Smith earlier this month, following in the footsteps of Supt. Michael Sass, who last month accused Smith and Phil Adair of political theatrics and playing to the camera that records the meetings for local-access cable television," says a report in the SouthtownStar.

Sass reportedly let Smith have it when she opposed a tax levy, saying, "This feels like theatrics to me. Look in the camera and say what are the $4 million you want us to cut. I showed you what this district would look like if we made $4 million of cuts and you all just about puked.”
