SD 15 Death Threat Update
Finally some hard news about the alleged death threats received by some District 15 board members. The Jewish Star has the scoop:
The stakes have risen again in the ongoing feud in the Lawrence school district between Dr. Asher Mansdorf, the president of the school board, and three other school board members, with the anonymous mailing of death threats to Mansdorf’s home and office.His children and grandchildren?? Over the possible closing of schools?? Scary. It's clear that the rancor in this district has escalated.
The letters, which were said to include threats against Mansdorf’s children and grandchildren, are the latest escalation of animosity over last summer’s election of an Orthodox majority to the District 15 school board.
Mansdorf confirmed that he and three other board members received threats last Wednesday, Nov. 8. Acting on the advice of Nassau County Police Department’s 4th Squad detectives, he declined to comment further. The identities of the three other recipients of the threats have not been released.
...The letters threatened harm to the board members and their families if any more schools are closed in District 15.
