St. John’s Mayor Dennis O’Keefe says while city council is footing the bill for school crossing guards for the coming school year, a change is still necessary. “It mystifies me how the school board can take a position that they do not want to be involved in or partner with the city in a program that will safeguard their pupils who are their responsibility,” O’Keefe said. The program costs $145,000 annually.
Our goal is to raise $15,000 before the end of the year to solidify our plans for 2023. We need your support to keep producing this progressive, explanatory, and unique local journalism.
