Does Speaking At A Public Hearing Ever Help?

Does speaking at at a public hearing ever help? That's is a question that my neighbor asked me as I dropped her off tonight from attending a public hearing where we had just spoke at to defend our children against being moved to another school district. We were told that there was a meeting today at a school 20 miles from our home to speak our minds about the two townships that merged together and shared a school to withdraw from that merge and attend different disticts. It's all really confusing to me and I really didn't understand what it was all about but what I do know is that my son will have to leave a school he is doing very well at now. My neighbor who just adopted a child and registered him for that school this year was so shocked to learn this information and she decided to go to the meeting with me. We never got any answers about what we are doing next and where they would all go to school. It was just a meeting to tell us what they were deciding to do and we got to tell how we felt about it. I decided to sign up to speak and so did my neighbor. She had made a few statements about how it seems useless to even think we could make any differnece when it comes to politicians. I was a little nervous standing there with her. I thought wow if she keeps going we could be escorted out of here. LOL . But she did calm down after we walked away from the table. When she got up to speak I was nervous about that but she did well. Then it was my turn. There was about a thousand people there and I was nervous about getting up there but I thought about my son that was sitting there waiting to hear me tell everyone what I had to say. I basically was an advocate for my son. I am scared for him and also all of the students that are affected by this decision. I don't understand what they are doing. I do know that they would be making a big mistake by letting this decision pass. They would make taxes harder on each township and the school would be a wreck. It will fall apart. So will the children. My neighbor asked me as I dropped her off does speaking at a public hearing ever help? I answered that I sure hope it does. I mean, why would they have one if it never does? But in my experience they usually have their minds made up before that meeting. But one can only hope that they are heard and taken seriously. Hope that our children don't have to start over.
