Where Government Gets Exposed

Chapin Student Tells District 5 Board Member Don’t Oppose Renovation

Chapin High School sophomore class president Matteo Macaluso singled out Lexington-Richland District 5 school board member Kim Murphy during the Nov. 14 board meeting for her opposition to renovating his school.

“… let it be known should there be any further delays to purposely stall our much-needed renovations you will be met with heavy resistance not only from around the community but also by the student body of Chapin High School,” Macaluso says during the public participation portion of the meeting. “Especially since you continually insult all of our intelligences (sic), because at Chapin high school, in case you didn’t know, we have smart students who see right through your lies. … And if needed, this resistance will form, I personally guarantee.”
