I have been reading about the proposed Lewiston-Auburn Academy Charter School with concern. My gut feeling tells me that the school will have Gulen influence, despite the claims by Tarlan Ahmadov and Huseyin Kara.

The Maine Charter School Commission has done its homework and should follow its instinct that the proposal presented does not pass the smell test.

As a taxpayer, I urge the commission to look elsewhere to establish a charter school in the community.
