Uses Emergency System to Politically Target Audience

At 8:27 this morning Bow Superintendent Dean Cascadden sent out the following e-mail to parents in the Bow School System despite promising that he would not do so at Bow Budget Committee meetings. Intent of Emergency Alert System was for just that, emergencies. Announcements of school closings and other emergency needed to get to inform parents of unexpected events. The planned school district meeting is not an unexpected event and its use for political purposes to target only parents of Bow Students and to shill only the school district website is a clear abuse of taxpayer funds.

School officials who repeatedly use taxpayer funded resources for political purposes should be held accountable. Will the school board take disciplinary action or will the taxpayers activate their oversight by tightening the control of these funds? Please go to the school district meeting initiate your oversight.
