Gerry boy... "get to work"....

I guess I must be a little slow on the uptake but I would have thought the Minister should be going to these meetings just to give the Boss and Caucus some feedback on the meetings not to mention the opportunity to give those in attendance the sense that Government is listening if nothing else... and don't our politicians get paid for this...
Minister to watch school-closure meetings from a distance

P.E.I. Education Minister Gerard Greenan doesn't plan to attend any of the meetings scheduled by the Eastern School District to discuss the proposed closing of 11 schools. Greenan told CBC News Friday it probably wouldn't be possible for him to simply go as an observer.
"I probably might like to go as an observer, but I guess if I show up there then something like this happens, people are asking me all kinds of questions," he said.
"So it's best that I observe it from what I hear in the media, and that's how I've chosen to approach this."
A school board report has proposed closing the schools to deal with declining enrolments. The meetings are part of a six-week consultation process.
The next meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m. Tuesday at Colonel Gray High School in Charlottetown.
