Why?

The 2019 Monroe-Woodbury school budget vote of $181,276,309 and $1,072,235 for buses, and only 1601 residents voted?

Are you kidding me, a budget of more than $182,000,000 and only a miniscule amount of residents took the time out of their schedules to cast their vote.

I do not know how many registered voters there are in this school district, but I am sure that 1,601 voters does not represent the majority of people with or without children in this school district.

Shame on all of you who did not vote and let 1,601 voters decide the cost of this school system for the coming year.

Incredible.

Shameful.
