In reading the story about teacher Robyn Baxendale raising money to pay off kids school lunch debt at Miller Middle School (“Fundraiser settles lunch debt for Miller students,” April 19), I note that a new Cruella de Vil has popped up in Durango.
I was astounded by the tin-ear response from Julie Popp, Durango School District 9-R spokeswoman. She criticized Robyn Baxendale’s effort by stating “negatively casted, nondistrict-sponsored fundraisers are not necessary.”
Seriously? This is how the district spokeswoman responds to a kind act by a truly caring teacher?
I’m thinking District 9-R doesn’t need a negatively casted spokeswoman any longer. She should be cast out.
