"We want to know why we have schools that are failing," said Joyce Kersey, chair of the Trenton Board of Education."We need every staff member to understand his or her role in achieving the defined student achievement results," said board chair Joyce Kersey."Dr.Dr. Lytle must use data to assure the board that our personnel are achieving the end results," said Kersey.


We need to know the value of the artwork thats here, LYCDC Chairwoman Joyce Kersey said after the meeting, noting no inventory or appraisal has ever been taken.
We have a lot of original art. Most of the artwork was produced by local artists and the hotel paid for the collection, Kersey said. As the Lafayette Yard Hotel & Conference Center navigates through bankruptcy to sale, the hotel board is allowed to sell the artwork separately from the auction. Kersey said reproductions valued below $1,000 would be included with the hotel sale. On Tuesday, the board voted to enter into a contract with Philadelphia-based October Gallery to perform the appraisal. The art company will charge $350 an hour to take an inventory of the artwork in each room, $8,000 for an appraisal report, and $6,500 to officiate an auction, plus travel costs negotiated from $350 an hour to $200 an hour. Kersey said the work could possibly cost $30,000, which would be taken from the $2 million loaned to the LYCDC during the bankruptcy process. The loan, which allows the hotel to keep its doors open until a new owner is in place, is guaranteed by the sale. So far, there has been one bid submitted to purchase the hotel for $5.5 million, Kersey said.


As one of their last acts, the Lafayette Yard board appointed Chairwoman Joyce Kersey as an independent trustee to act with the delegated power of the full board to pay any final bills and dissolve the panel in the next two months.
"We do not have an office staff," Kersey said. Kersey said she feels that she is entitled to $44,000 for ensuring that the Lafayette Yard board was able to sell the hotel. She said if the board had hired a professional to do the work she has done in the last few months, they would have spent much more than $44,000. "It's either this or the board would have to hire someone," Kersey said. "The board chose to be economical." Kersey was appointed chairwoman of the volunteer board in March and is the longest serving member. "I am a professional worth much more than that," said Kersey, who is retired from the nonprofit Children's Futures and served on the school board from 1998 to 2008. Kersey said she works about six hours each day, including some weekends, and was constantly on conference calls, typing emails and working with attorneys to push the bankruptcy sale through "in record time. She said she would not do the remaining work if she were not paid. "I can't continue to do this level of work," Kersey said. "Everyone else gets to go home and I still have this on my plate." Other board members thanked Kersey for her time and commitment to the hotel. An attorney for the city and the attorney for the unsecured creditors committee said they reserved the right to oppose the payment to Kersey or any other contingency expense that is not outlined in the wind-down budget.
