My child came home the other day and I told me I needed to vote yes on the Merge. I asked her why, she said her teacher told all the kids to tell their parents to vote yes.
Since we are not saving any money, and I seriously doubt the quality of education will go up. I'm left to wonder why the Teachers and Administrators want this so bad. I'm left to conclude there must be some serious pay increases or incentives for them to be using the children to push their agenda.Using this tactic is unconscionable. It goes directly to the reasons why the NO vote is getting stronger. The Pro Merger folks think they can insult and intimidate the NO voter.On October 18 you will see how many of us tax paying, Beer Swilling Hicks will turn out. Sorry yes people,you can't intimidate us any longer. We're VOTING NO deal with it.

That is ridiculous! Teachers should not be talking to ELEMENTARY school-aged children about this. They should be TEACHING them what they are required to teach. I didn't know MERGER 101 was now a required class. It seems that same "class" is being taught in the High School as well. This only fuels my fire more! This MUST get voted down! Wake up people, they are using all of us to fill their own pockets! This madness has to stop. Get out and vote on the 18th!

The Mohawk and Herkimer teachers pay will be brought up to the same level as the Ilion teachers who currently make more. It's in the merger study so it would make sense that the teachers want the yes vote. Once the state pulls the "state aid" which has been the trend for the past several years, who will be left to pay the new salaries that are union contracted?? I would love to know what teacher did this?? Vote NO!!!

I am pretty sick of all the no merger people in Herkimer. You have had over a year to voice your opinions....but, no you wait til the last minute, then use dirty lies and nastiness. You all are grasping at straws. Then again most of you now speaking your mind have been like this all along. You sit back, don't involve yourself, don't attend BOE meetings, then think you know what you are talking about. Now you have started sending out text messages using your children's contacts , saying to tell your parents to vote no and bring others into Herkimer to vote no. WHEN this merger goes through the kids will be just fine. It's the parents who will have to attend "Social Skills 101" Honestly though, if you care so much ....Where have to been ? Letting life pass you by hangin out at the Polish club ?

The proof is in the pudin' read YOUR merger study conducted by YES voters! Show me one teacher that has signed a legal binding contract stating that they will NOT accept a salary increase when the union contracts are negotiated after the merger and state aide increase...that's what I thought.

Do you actually think residents should base their vote on info they have collected from BOE meetings that were planned, conducted, and narated by yes voters?

Not all residents are as gullible as the retirees that were paid a visit with a stack of absentee ballots by the yes squad during the straw poll. Is that the only arses you can blow your smoke up? We'll see how that works with a state vote where only individuals can apply for ONE absentee ballot. Those who pulled these shanannigans should be ashamed of themselves, the word is out who they are!!
