A source, who attended last night’s Pottstown school board meeting, tells me that congratulations are again in order for Pottstown School Board President Rick Huss. Evidently Mr. Huss gave Mr. Hylton a piece of his mind, once again.
Mr. Hylton tried to present a proposal to eliminate the modular classrooms but he did not go through the Facilities Committee. Some people just don’t get it. There are rules for school board member, like any another group. Everyone, including Tom Hylton, is expected to follow protocols and procedures. Otherwise, we descend into anarchy. Circumventing the committee you report to, public grandstanding at meetings and those ridiculous “infomericals” in the Mercury are out-of-order!
Mr. Hylton evidently pulled a fast one at the last President’s Task Force meeting and requested to speak as a patron, going behind Rick’s back to do so. Being a school board member trumps being John Q. Pottstonian. As a school board member, Mr. Hylton should not have taken time away from the patrons to speak. School board members are there to listen only.
It is a shame that Mr. Hylton feels his mandate from voters is make a mockery of the Pottstown School Board.
Kudos to Mr. Huss!
10 demerits to Mr. Hylton!
I am still waiting for someone to make my motion or, at the very least, formally censure Mr. Hylton for constantly breaking the rules.

Roy – AGREED!!!
The sad thing about this is the lesson, in practice, it teaches the children of this community. A Committe system is in place and should be followed by all; the lesson ‘on display’ for all to see is that rules only apply to some or in certain situations – BAD FORM!!
Regarding the Task Force meeting, from my perspective and MINE alone, it was a political address to a ‘captive’ audience. Mention of mandates and history lessons are not productive and nothing short of distracting to the central mission of THIS Task Force.
Thank you, President Huss, for continuing your resolve to serve the PSD and the community!!
