A huge “thank you” if you are among those who urged the county commissioners not to support the revised anti-Common Core Resolution at today’s Board of County Commissioners (BCC) Meeting as I asked on Monday.

The item was pulled from the consent agenda (a collection of supposedly non-controversial items not requiring discussion or independent action) where, in my opinion, it should never have been in the first place, and discussed first thing.

The BCC decided to defer the item until after tonight’s School Board meeting at which the School Board’s legislative platform will be discussed.

So unfortunately, the item still isn’t dead. It will be back before the Commissioners at their February 24th meeting.

But the message is clear. You made a difference. I have no doubt that you changed the course of events by taking a few minutes to write those emails. We’re not where we want to be, but we have their attention.

Stay tuned. More to come.
