Details on School Consolidation Debate

Laurens County Republican Party Chair Keith Tripp has provided more details about an upcoming debate he’s having with Republican Representative Mike Pitts about the issue of consolidation of School Districts 55 and 56. Mr. Tripp said that he and Representative Pitts will be “discussing and debating the merits of the bill, or lack thereof, and perhaps the general question of school district consolidation which is being pushed around the state.”

Keith Tripp said this will begin promptly at 7 pm July 17th with each person giving a two-minute opening statement. The remaining time will be divided into 12-minute segments between the two men, and will end with final thoughts from each.
