SOMERSWORTH — The Strafford County Democratic Committee’s chairwoman is circulating a petition to reverse Superintendent Karen Soule’s decision to not air live, in any of the school district’s five schools, President Barack Obama’s special address on Tuesday.

The chairwoman, 25-year-old Caitlin Daniuk, said more than 100 people in the School Administrative Unit 56 communities of Somersworth and Rollinsford have signed the petition. She said she will turn it in to Soule at the school district office Tuesday morning.

“All students should be allowed to view it live,” Daniuk said. “It’s the president.”

On Thursday, Soule mailed a letter to parents saying the address will not be shown live, but will later be made available in school libraries. The Portsmouth and Kittery, Maine, school districts also will not show the speech live but make it available later.
