What was Ms. Caporiccio's vote regarding the Superintendent's raise?

I believe she was for that raise. I recall the ONLY 1 against was Mary Morgan.

from the Wareham local on Nov. 11


Because the board voted “proficient” for Shaver-Hood’s job performance, committee chairwoman Judy Caporiccio said she would begin negotiations for an extended contract with the superintendent. The extended contract is not listed on this coming meeting’s agenda for Wednesday Nov. 15, but should be voted on in the near future.
