Letter: Burke's letter was over the top

To the editor,

Regarding Mr. Burke's Nov. 13 letter to the editor dictating the school board select Veronica Walter for the soon-to-be vacant board seat, I point out that Mr. Burke is already demonstrating how he will "work" with the board. Such hyperbole as "an unconscionable miscarriage of justice" is not indicative of a person who is open to working with others to improve the district.

Whether Walter should be chosen or not, Mr. Burke needs to recognize that, now that he's part of the system that controls change in the district, the words he uses must be chosen more carefully. That's part of what it takes to get things done as a team.
