Also an Ayer Taxpayer wrote:
The budget challenges that our school district is facing are not unique. EVERY town department is struggling to put together a balanced budget for next year. The school district will do what needs to be done to balance the district budget just as they always do every year. Regionalization is not a secret conspiracy conceived in the back room of hidden government building and implemented without our knowledge. From the beginning, it has been a continuously open process with constant opportunities to ask questions and have those questions answered. The taxpayers of Ayer and Shirley clearly expressed their desire to regionalize our school districts when the taxpayers voted in favor of regionalization last last year. The Ayer Shirley Regional School District is a reality! Now, it is every taxpayer's responsibility to, WITH AN OPEN MIND, gather information and ask questions as important decisions regarding OUR Regional School District must be made by WE the taxpayers. Otherwise, WE THE TAXPAYERS risk dooming the Ayer Shirley Regional School District before it even opens it's doors for the first time on July 1, 2011.

all are sick and tired of being LIED too by those who profess "for the children"

This was not a mandate from either town to form this region. Less than 100 attended Ayers STM. 300 or so in Shirley, obviously
stacked withthe lets force the seniors and un-employeed out so I can gain finanically or whatever the "For the Children" reason this week

Hope this is absolutely crushed!

Its amazing that when its something that some don't support that a low turn out makes it not a mandate, but when it is a low turnout and things do go your way, the other people just don't care enough to come out to vote.
The sad thing is that it is about the children, and it is also about your property values which will continue to decline if you allow the school system to decline. Its the first question people ask when moving to a town, they don't ask about a senior center.
