'Please do not put our community at risk'


Make text smaller Make text larger





It is budget time again. The good news is there is a 4.73 percent decrease in the budget for 2016-17 and the proposed budget is only a 1.06 percent increase. All staff and program K-12 will remain in place.

Sending our high school students to another district is not supported by the Board of Education and the majority of residents which was made clear in the vote last May. Unknown tuition rates, transportation costs and the impact on the taxpayers will be devastating in the long term.

I ask my fellow Tuxedo residents to make the right choice and vote yes for a budget that works in all of our favor. This budget supports the students, faculty, staff and the community.

Please do not put our community at risk by going against our budget. Let’s keep our community intact and not risk division and increasing taxes. Relocating our students to another district is not the right way to go. Let’s support our hometown and remain independent.

Tuxedo is a special place, let’s keep it that way. If there wasn’t a viable school district, we all lose and our property values will decline.

Make the right choice. Please get out and vote “yes” to support the budget on Tuesday, May 17 from 2 to 9 p.m. The students, staff, and community deserve this support.

Thank you.
