"I'll fight you all the way"

"Even though Joe from the County said, I'll fight you all the way..."
the kids from Takoma Park are pressing on with their fight to rid their lunchroom of styrofoam lunch trays. A parent advisor sums up the situation at the end of the video by saying;
"The guy who is in charge of Facilities Management is a dinosaur. He's gotta go."
Joe Lavorgna is currently the Acting Director of the MCPS Department of Facilities Management according to the MCPS website.

And he already did "go". He retired (see page 5 of link) from MCPS in 2005 and has apparently been brought back as a "consultant" to continue doing the job he was doing before he retired.

Watch the video for a brief summary of the "battle" as sung to the tune of  "Goodnight, Irene".

Goodnight, Joe.
