Lisa Gutch, the current vice chair of the Sudbury Public Schools Committee, is not running for re-election.
Deadline to pull papers for the March 25 Annual Town Election passed Tuesday (5 p.m.) and two things became clear: there won't be a change on the Board of Selectmen and there will be a change on the Sudbury Public Schools Committee. Current Selectman Vice Chair Bob Haarde will run unopposed for his second term. Haarde was a strong voice last year when the Lavender liquor license violation story broke, calling for an investigation into how it happened. Residents became so frustrated with the lack of clarity from Selectmen Chair Larry O'Brien and Selectman John Drobinski, a Special Town Meeting was held in September to increase the Board from three to five members. The vote passed, but an appeal to the State Legislature resulted in the town …

"Have you ever seen a petition of No Confidence before?" Nassa inquired of Chair Richard Robison, who has been a member of the School …

Last Friday, Lisa Gutch responded to a comment made by Thomas Schmidt, a Patch reader, who asserts that he has been researching our school system. In her response, Ms. Gutch states that she is the Vice Chair of the Sudbury School committee. Furthermore, she offered to provide Mr. Schimdt with an "accurate account" of what has been happening in Sudbury (Public Schools) in recent months. Since Ms. Gutch represents herself as the Vice Chair of the SPSC and not as resident, taxpayer, or parent, I find her offer of information to be improper at best. If she is speaking with Mr. Schmidt in an official capacity and not as a town resident, it implies that she will be sharing more information regarding SPSC matters than she has with the parents…
