Longtime Burlington School Board member calls it quits

Posted: Updated:
BURLINGTON, Vt. -

A longtime member of the Burlington School Board is calling it quits.

Keith Pillsbury has served as a commissioner for 23 years.

He says some on the school board have lost sight of doing what's best for kids in the middle of ongoing drama involving the district's budget problems. He also says Mayor Miro Weinberger's call for Superintendent Jeanne Collins to go was not in line with a desire for the city and school division to work together. Pillsbury says the move left him with a bad feeling.

Pillsbury says he does not support the current proposed budget.

He will leave his post in June, almost a year before his term was slated to expire.
