From outrageous accusations to bogus police investigations, we’ve heard just about everything you can imagine from Superintendent Metzler and Lt. William Baldwin of the Plaistow Police Department.
Harriet Cady called in to comment on the situation at Timberlane and in Manchester.
From Donna Green after this morning’s show to clarify some of what we discussed in the archive below:
1) The large increase is in the SAU 55 budget. The bottomline request for the Timberlane School District budget has not yet been revealed. The Budcom did ask for level funding. We have already been told there is this $500k electrical project and retirement increases up $500k – so good luck with that request, as you said.
2) In 2013 Jorge Mesa-Tejada from Hampstead and I put a warrant article in both the school districts warrants to separate the SAU 55 budget from the individual school district budgets. This had never happened before in our districts but there is a legal provision to permit this. With this stripping out of the SAU budget, voters were able to reject the proposed SAU budget, which they did by a wide margin.
