NBC News was on site tonight:
“We have a board that’s largely been held hostage by three or four board members who are very, very anti-tax. Nobody’s pro-tax but the fact of the matter is these are some of the lowest paid teachers in the surrounding district,” said Mike McGue, the Lake Count Federation of Teachers President
For those of you who do not remember Mr. McGue from the Zion teacher strike in 2012, here is a reminder:
