Tuesday, May 19, voters will decide on a $195,486,351 budget proposal and elect three Board of Education candidates. Polls will be open from 6AM - 9PM at each of the elementary schools. This year's budget will not increase taxes. There are four candidates running for school board. They are:
SCATS endorses Joe Grinnan for the BOE
SCATS recommends a"NO" vote on the budget
This endorsement is based upon dissatisfaction under BOE leadership with Boily/VanOrman at the helm. Mr. Grinnan's performance during Candidate's Night showed him to be the only alternative worth pulling a lever in favor of. If you can't vote for Joe, then at least please consider NOT pulling the lever for Roger Boily. He's the individual responsible for hiring Schwab, Rahn AND Achramovitch, jeopardizing every aspect of our community's future with ongoing scandals, corruption and wasted money.
The recommended budget vote is due to many factors, not the least of which is that this budget fails to provide equitable educational opportunities at ALL district schools while continuing to waste millions on unnecessary bussing for a minority of students.
