What happened this year that there were no articles about the upcoming budgets? Dont bother voting, folks, they will pass anyway. If they dont, they will keep on proposing spending cuts that affect the students and parents, until the budgets pass. You will never see any cuts in staff, salaries. Or benefits. Enjoy the increase folks, you can only blame youselves for the overburdened tax community! Happy voting.

Justin I posted a blog here about it, but it appears that RYAN BONNER FOUND OTHER STORIES MORE INTERESTING to promote. THE FIX IS IN, JUSTIN !

I'll Vote NOT as usual, but the sheep will pass again as usual, truly believing that the increases will benefit their little darlings. The exodus from Long Island has begun. House values are dropping in MP. We no longer rank in the Top 1,000.....remember the days of Top 100? Taxes increasing + school district in decline = Declining Home values. The sheep are incapable of understanding this basic arithmetic.
