Curt Ankerberg, a candidate for the Medford School Board, says the Mail Tribune is lying when it said he called an opponent illiterate. Just to make it clear who is lying, here’s how the conversation went in the meeting with the editorial board:
Cheryl Dykes, responding to previous comments by Ankerberg questioning her qualifications, noted she has a personal interest in the success of the Medford School District, in part because she has grandchildren who attend the schools and had two children graduate from Medford high schools.
“… both have master’s degrees,” she said. “We’re not all illiterate.”
Ankerberg, sitting next to her, responded, “But you are.”
