Resident Dave Brown offered this take on the push for a new school:
While I like the simplicity of our new high school for Havre de Grace banner cry of "IT'S OUR TURN," this is far from our most compelling argument. In fact, I hope that the school board prioritizes capital investments of much more important things such as safety and security of our students—which by the way, are our most compelling arguments. Two city streets going right through our high school campus present significant safety and security issues that must be rectified and can only be fixed by relocating Havre de Grace High School. Perhaps the longer version of our banner cry should read: "IT'S OUR TURN—OUR STUDENTS NEED A SAFE AND SECURE PLACE TO LEARN."
Brown is a Havre de Grace resident whose three sons graduated from Havre de Grace High School.
